I saw a YouTube video by MopTop Maven where she did a tutorial on how she achieved her braidout.
Her hair doesn’t absorb products like mine, nor does her hair retain moisture as long. I’m learning about her hair, what products her hair prefers and her hair’s porosity (read more here) .
She’s excited to wear her very first braid-out. As MopTopMaven instructed we worked in small sections. In each section I added a dime size amount of leave-in conditioner and gel. At the end I then added the oil.
The middle pic shows the products in her braids before they are absorbed. I then had her go under the dryer for 20 minutes on medium ion heat to speed-up the process a bit.
Now we wait and see how the braid-out comes out. Unfortunately, she thought she’d have the braid-out the very same day. Well, no sweetheart, we have to wait it out a bit.
Stay tuned next week for the results…
I’m including the tutorial that I adapted from MopTop Maven below. If you decided to try it, please be sure to let me know how your results were.
