Box Braids with Beads

Hi y'all! Long time no hear! I know, shame on me. But we're back with a new style. Small box braids weighed down with 4 beads per braid. There are a few cornrows in the front though. This is how Kurly T had her hair for her 4th birtday, but I didn't take pics to showcase her hair. We've gotten so many compliments on this style and it lasted 3 weeks! I loved this style because it was so versatile. I do not let Kurly T wear her hair "down" like her favorite princess Rapunzel as she so frequently asks, but this is the closest thing to it. Hope you all like it.

Chunky Beads for Chunky Braids

Hey y'all! We have had these beads since before Kurly T could walk. I would put her hair in about 7 or 8 ponytails and add these chunky beads. This was before I learned to cornrow. We used to use them all the time, so we've decided to revisit them. I put 2 ponytails up front separated by a zig zag part in the middle and did 2 rows of chunky cornrows in the back. I cornrowed 2 small braids in the front around the ponytails to tame her "halo" or else I would have to touch this style up daily, which is a no, no because we like low manipulation styles around here. I added ribbons around the ponytails for cuteness. This style was really quick because the braids were bigger and as an added bonus we can change the ribbons daily to match her outfits! How fun! Hope you likey! Happy Styling ladies!

Length Check

Hey y'all! I just took Kurly T's braids out and decided to see how long her hair was. So here is our first official length check. It has grown so much since last year. Yay for length retention! I think moisturizing and sealing along with protective styling and low manipulation have attributed to our progress. While I am happy with the length, I am more focused on healthy hair. Enjoy!

Cornrows and Boxbraids Remix

I've been stalking YouTube like you wouldn't believe. I did my Big Chop back in January and so I needed some tips quick! I ran across a video of a style that I wanted to try for Kurly T. It's by AfrikanHairGod and he is really talented. I've added the video below. He did flat twists, but I'm not good at those yet, so I did cornrows and box braids. I'm also trying to give Kurly T's ends a break from beading too often so this style was perfect. I washed, conditioned and banded overnight and styled the next day on stretched hair. Here is my version. Hope you likey! Happy Styling!


Products Used:
Mixed Chicks Shampoo and Deep Conditioner
Giovanni Direct Leave In mixed with water (spray bottle)
Castor oil to seal
Taliah Waajid Kinky, Wavy, Natural Herbal Style & Shine to style (Love this stuff)

Cornrowed Ponytail

This weekend was super busy and we had a very small window for hair time. Therefore, I had to use.... dun, dun, dun...the blow dryer! I know, I know, heat = no, no right? But I used low heat and the cool shot to dry and stretch her hair. I made sure her hair was well moisturized and sealed (Suave Almond and Shea Butter to moisturize and castor oil to seal)before using the blow dryer. To my surprise her hair was easier to work with than when I banded! Since I had to take her braids out, wash, dry and style the same day, I had to do something and It turned out to be a great idea! Like I said, I was pressed for time so I did some larger cornrows. But I still think it turned out cute. Hope you likey! Happy Styling!
