Cornrow Braid-out (one week later)
I wanted to post an update of the braid-out that I posted a few days ago (seen here). Here are pictures of the same braid-out, a week later. To maintain the style, I just spritzed my hair with a water and leave-in conditioner mist (when needed) and put on my satin cap. In the morning I re-fluffed and went about my business.
I don’t have much to say about the style. I do get asked how I manage to keep my braid-outs for so long. In my case, I often keep my hair braided up for a few days in order to get the most definition.
I have also noticed that my braid-outs look better when done on hair that has not been freshly shampooed. If I want a “banging” braid-out…I wear my hair in a braid-out for a few weeks, then I rebraid it without re-washing it (video on my Mid-Wear rebraid technique coming in my next post).
“Oh…but isn’t your hair…*gasp* dirty when you do that?” My answer…not really. I do not use a whole lot of product in my hair, so there’s no build-up on my hair or scalp. “Does your scalp itch after a few weeks?” My answer…not really. Not any more than it did when I was shampooing my hair every day or every week.
