So I have 3C/4A THICK hair that needs a lot of moisture lol, so maybe you're the same. I do braidouts ALL the time but there's a few ways to do it. We don't have a Youtube video on specifically a braidout, however we do have a video for twists where you can apply the same methods (except braid your hair with 3 strands vs 2 strands.
Steps to Achieve a Braidout
- Deep condition my hair (using our Coconut Deep Conditioner)
- Part hair in 4 sections and pin them up; *repeat steps 3-6 each section*
- Add Coconut Milk or Butter Milk Leave in for your initial moisture layer
- Add Butter Twist Pudding as your heavy cream dual moisture layer
- Just use the Pudding for a soft/fluffy hold or use the Butter Jelly for more hold and definition
- Single braid each section - larger 1" parts per braid for a wavy look and 0.5" parts per braids for a more defined/crimped look
- Keep the braids in overnight and take out in the morning ONLY IF DRY *WARNING: You do NOT want to undo your braids if they are even slightly still damp or else your whole hairstyle will be a fail, trust me
*style lasts all week*
Use Braidouts or Twistouts as a nice way to vary your hairstyles in between washngo's or to help out when you're Transitioning (the step before the "Big Chop") since it will help blend the 2 textures of your hair (new growth and damaged hair). Enjoy!
