Bomb braid out on 4c hair

At this point, I prefer braid outs to twist outs. They give better definition and volume than twist outs on first day hair. Twist outs are nice, but I don’t get the volume I’ll like with first day hair.

All thanks to quarantine, I’ve been trying out new styles with my natural hair and I’ll be sharing the outcome with you all.

Let’s go straight to the process of achieving a bomb braid out.

Procedure

1.) You should start on freshly washed and deep conditioned hair. I feel this gives the best results.

2.) Work with small sections especially if your hair is short and make sure it’s thoroughly detangled.

3.) Apply your styling products and braid your hair. I twisted the ends of my hair so it would be easier to take down.

1.) Rub some oil on your finger tips and carefully take down each braid.

2.) After you’ve loosened all the braids, gently separate the curls where they naturally want to separate so you don’t cause frizz.

3.) Use a comb or your fingers and pick your hair at the roots to hide the harsh parts and make it look fuller.

4.) Style your hair and your bomb braid out is ready.

How I wore my hair to sleep. I banded it in 8 sections

I used my regular okro gel and whipped Shea butter for this braid out. If you’ve been following me I know you’re tired of hearing this by now😂. I’m in need of new products but can’t get any till this quarantine is over so I’m making use of what’s available.

Do you prefer braid outs or twist outs? Let me know in the comments.

Thanks for reading

Stay blessed 🙌
