Blog Post #2

Over the last few weeks I have been watching a lot of different youtube videos!

My sister in-law is a hair dresser so I asked her for some pointers.  She suggested I practice with wet hair and part my hair ahead of time.

Practice using my sister in-laws tips!

As you can see I need a lot of practice on myself.  I had my sister video tape herself braiding my hair and I watched that a lot.  I also asked her for helpful hints and tips. She prefers to braid the hair dry so I tried braiding my hair dry.

After trying both techniques I found that braiding my own hair when it is dry works best for me.

2014-07-27 16.06.55 When my hair was dry I was able to pull the strand tighter and make the braid a little more clean.  Opposed to when my hair was wet the braid was not tight.


I find that braiding someone else’s hair is way easier! I have also found that when I am braiding my hair I get frustrated very easily when the braid does not turn out the way I want it to the first time.  I have learned that I need to be patient with myself as I am learning a tricky braid.

The youtube videos have been the most helpful I try to match their step by step instructions and there are a lot of different tutorial videos.
