NEW HAIRSTYLE ALERT: BOX BRAIDS

NEW HAIRSTYLE ALERT: BOX BRAIDS

Black hair has been an integral feature of black history – from African tribal styles to dreadlocks and the afro. (Read more about the cultural meaning of Hair in Blackness here )

Coucou mes Amours! Alors aujourd’hui on parle beauté. Et pour l’occasion je vous présente ma nouvelle tête: je me la suis faite 100% Africaine, avec mes tresses! Je ne sais pas si c’est la nostalgie du pays, ou un désir de distinction…ou juste un moyen stylé et facile de ne pas avoir a me coiffer chaque matin ahah! Bref, suivez-moi au travers de ces quelques étapes pour en savoir tout sur le procédé que j ai utilisé. Car devrais-je préciser mes cheveux sont 100% naturels et je me coiffe toute seule. Allez, c’est parti!

Hey loves! Today, we are talking beauty, and I its my pleasure to reveal to you my new hairstyle: I treated myself to a pure African crown with my braids! I am wondering why I picked this specific hairstyle tho, don’t know if it’s because I have been very homesick lately, or a need for something that stands out…or probably just a great alternative to having to style my fro on a daily basis. Anyway, just stick around and follow my step-by step process…Should I mention I am a naturalista, and I pretty much did everything on my own. Alright, let’s dive in!

STEP1: Prepare Your Hair

  • I started by soaking my hair in hot coconut oil for a good 15 minutes
  • Using my favorite Sulfate-free Shampoo by Creme of Nature, I gave my hair a good cleaning
  • Then I conditioned it with what I call my goodness in a jar: the Shea Moisture Grow and Restore Masque (applied it from roots to end, and let it penetrate under a hooded dryer for 15 minutes) BTW I am wearing a plastic grocery bag lol, I ran out of plastic hair caps, don’t judge!
  • Last stop in this step: rinse, dry and moisturize! Voila! Your hair is ready.

    Les produits que tu appliques c’est uniquement pour les cheveux naturel ?…..
    Tu es très jolie avec tes tresses 😍😍😍

      Merci du compliment ma pupuce! Pour ce qui est de ta question, non, ils sont tout aussi approprié pour les cheveux traités. Et je les recommande vivement vu leur forte concentration en huiles naturelles! 🙂

    Je trouve ça tellement joli les tresses ! Malheureusement moi mes cheveux sont si indisciplinés vu que je me gratouille tout le temps, qu’au bout d’une semaine ça ne ressemble plus à rien ! sad sad sad !
    En tout ça te va super bien, ça illumine ton visage !

      Merci ma douce, ouh tu vas me faire rougir, c est tlmnt adorable! Mais tu sais, moi je trouve ca mimi les tresses un peu vieillies, ca fait un effet plus naturel. Donc je crois que le cas de tes cheveux n’est pas si dramatique/ Je te conseillerai eventuellement les faux locs ^^

    I also make hair for people but i have never braided on myself, don’t think i can go through it, i only crochet my hair myself and i am also natural but don’t take care of my hair as much as you do lol. I would say you did well for self made braids.

    Love,
