|This post is a little late, I actually braided her hair on Tuesday, May 29th.|
Braids are holding up nicely.
Going on 2 weeks.
I began her hair the next day. I decided to go back to the old way of doing things. When BG "S" was younger, I simply used grease and water (mouths drop, lol) and never had any problems with dryness, breakage or any other issues people think/say grease cause...just a little lint. Well, this go' round I decided to use Nature's Blessing Hair Pomade (Grease) and Water. I used this grease when I was relaxed and LOVED it!!! With each section, I spritz the hair with distilled water, applied the grease to the hair and began braiding. I was very happy with the outcome...no frizz, no greasiness or stickiness, just well done braids without the hassle of going back and forth between several different products!
Will this be my way of doing braids? Possibly...Nature's Blessing is easy to get, works great as a sealant/ styler, very affordable and this has been the only way I have gotten braids done successfully to my liking on BG "S"! No wonder I braided her hair so much when she was younger, sometime you just have to revisit the old way of doing things. Have you tried using grease and how did you use it?
