Mini Braids

Hey! Recently  I tried out some mini braids on my hair and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I had them in for 3 weeks and they were very small actually, a little too small but whatever. It took me about 2 hrs to complete my hair over 3 days. I originally had my hair in mini twists and when I wanted to do the mini braids I took the twist down and added some Flaxseed gel( see my previous post on that), Shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie and Shea butter until I was complete. I really love it and so I had one section on my left side that had flat twists to create that shaven- side hair look thingy ! To  keep up with the braids I either braided them to create a crinkly look or put them in rollers to have bigger curls. My ends were in heaven, they weren't breaking off as easily as they were before and they stay moisturized longer. My hair also grew, not that much, but enough to notice that something was different. I enjoyed my braids until I had to take them down. It took my 5 hours to do and since I couldn't be able to style my hair again on top of that (mind you this is all happening at night) after I took the braid I put it in a mini twist so that the next day for church on Saturday I could do a mini twist out. Since my hair was very moisturized, the curl pattern when I took the mini twists the next day was just beautiful. The curls were just everywhere and they looked so good! Overall I love mini braids/ twists but I would still end up doing mini braids because they unravel as easily as the mini twists!
