Transition Hair: Braid Out and 5 day Maintenance

May 16th, 2011 No comments

While transitioning to natural hair- Here, I show how I do my braid out and maintain the hairstyle without re-braiding my hair every night. This is my weekly routine. Most of us are too busy or not in the mood to re-braid our hair everyday, which is why I share how I maintain my hairstyle each day and night. I hope this video help others out there. The key thing is, pull all hair UPWARD so as you sleep the krinkles/curls stay nice on top. Be creative, Be motivated, and Push yourself! Follow me on my journey to natural hair by subscribing :)
