*Please remember when creating African-American braiding styles, do not create tight braids. The tension can cause traction alopecia
|Before creating African-American braiding styles, hair has to be prepped. So, how did I prepare my hair for this style?||I washed my hair with my usual routine with a few exceptions:
|Styling Tools Used: hair butter, rat-tail comb, and butterfly clip to hold hair|
*To make these braids, I didn't comb my hair with the rat tail comb, but finger-combed each braided and twisted section using the hair butter for slip. If you detangle thoroughly and gently after washing, you won't have to comb the hair again.*
|Step 2: Then I twisted the back section. I used about 1/2 inch-1 inch parts for each one.||Step 3: French Roll Style: I made a french roll with my twists and bobby pinned my hair|
