Hairstyle: French Braids

So, I finally can achieve French Braids without having to divide them into four sections (as I did previously).

Yesterday, after church I knew I had to do my hair. For some reason, I just wasn't in the mood to do it. However, I also knew that I could not neglect my hair. So, I figured I would co-wash my hair but, I had no idea what style I wanted to do for my hair.

I wore my hair out for about a week and a half so, I knew I needed a protective style. Yet, sometimes I get tired of protective styles that involve so many bobby pins. So, I kept thinking and finally figured that I would put in french braids. This hairstyle is so simple and so fast. I love it. It's great for those times you want to be low maintenance.

Here's what I did:
1. Co-washed my hair with V05 Moisture Milks in Strawberry.
2. Detangled my hair.
3. Deep conditioned with V05 Moisture Milks in Strawberry for about 30 minutes.
4. Divided my hair into 2 sections down the middle.
5. Applied Suave Naturals in Coconut as a leave-in to each section.
6. Braided each section.

I did do a YouTube video on this hairstyle but, it is still processing. So, I will provided a link later.
