Well, It’s official! I’m all braided up, *does cabbage patch*, and I am LOVING IT!

So, how and where was this done? Well, on Sunday evening I stopped by the beauty supply store and, with the help of Lexi, (I wasn’t sure what colored I needed) picked up 6 packs of Kanekalon Synthetic Braiding Hair.

Determined not to pay an exorbitant amount of money to have my hair braided, I decided to go out on a limb and do it myself.

On Monday night I washed and conditioned my hair and them blew it out. To protect my mane from the heat, I used a generous amount of Optimum’s Heat Protectant Polisher

When I was done blow drying I parted my hair in 4 sections, secured 3 of those section and left one out to begin braiding. I parted about 1/2 inch sections for each braid and used a little under a half an inch of synthetic hair for each braid.

I started the braiding process around 7:00pm on Monday, April 30th and finished, with the top portion of my hair left to complete, around 2:00am on Tuesday, May 1st.

After about 4 hours of sleep I woke up and attempted to finish the top portion of my head before work but, I ran out of hair.

I’m sure you are wondering, “have you finished yet?” Well, not exactly. :)

I plan to purchase 2 additional packs of hair and finish tonight. I have been wearing a high bun to camouflage the uncompleted portion of hair.

All in all, I’m completely satisfied with my results and ecstatic to be enjoying my much needed hair break! If you have any questions about the braiding process or my braiding technique feel free to ask!

Stay tuned for updates on how I style my box braids each day.

    Your braids look great! I wish that I could braid my own hair. I can work miracles braiding my daughters hair but when it comes to my own, it’s a lost cause. Thanks for sharing.

    I really like your braids. What is the best way to clean your scalp? How long can you keep the braids in? If they get wet, is it true you have to carefully dry them so they don’t smell musty? Or is that just for dreads? Thanks for you time!
