A few quick tips to remember:

*Prepare your child mentally for the process. I gave my daughter a weeks notice so that she could be mentally ready.
*Start with a clean head of hair
*Have plenty of snacks on hand

*Have all of your child’s favorite movies available
*Make sure you have a comfortable seat and seating area
* You may have to break the style up into a 2 or 3 day event if you are doing it yourself. Be flexible.

Weekend Box Braids

Brown Girls Hair

As I stated in our October Hair Goals, I had a close family friend name Thalia ,that I refer to as my sister, to put box braids in my Brown Girls Hair. She did them on this past Friday night. It took about 6 hours including a few 10 minute breaks. I got the part inspiration from Tweeny Hair Blog. She’s not blogging anymore : (…..I miss her!

I am so thankful to Thalia for doing these for me…..I will be having her braidmy daughters hair all of the time now. :)! She has given me some great tips on how to keep Brown Girls Hair intip top shape. I will be sharing all of them with you.

I plan to keep her hair in these box braids for at least 3 weeks, more if possible. I am going to do a style series on her box braids that you can watch on our channel as well as here. I am so excited because I have come up with some very unique ideas along with some styles that were inspired by some of my favorite youtube natural hair guru’s.
I would have posted this on last Friday or Saturday, but I wasn’t feeling too well and had to take a little time to nurse myself. I really ain’t got time to be sick!
Anyway, stay tuned for the box braid series that will start next week and don’t forget to share your Brown Girls Hair styles with us on facebook.  Please follow us on Instagram @BrownGirlsHair and Use #BrownGirlsHair and we will feature your pictures on there and here ———->>>>> in the sidebar!!

Flexi Rod Set on Natural Girl

This is the hair style that I put her hair in after taking down her box braids. I took them out over a period of 3 days (weekend). I started taking them down on Friday night for about 2 hours. I started in the rear and worked my way to the top.  Then on Saturday night I did about 3 hours and Sunday it took an additional 2 hours or so. Why it took longer for me to take them out than it took for my good friend to put them in is beyond me! LOL! 
On Sunday after 2 hours of taking braids down, I washed, deep conditioned, finger detangled (while the conditioner was in) and wide tooth comb detangled (after conditioner was rinsed out). Then I did a Flexi Rod Set on Brown Girls Hair. I didn’t show the results in the video because it got really late and her hair still wasn’t dry so she ended up sleeping with some of the rods in the back of her head : (! She said she slept good. I made sure her sides were dry before bed because I know that she sleeps on her sides and not on her back. 
This style lasted for 2 weeks…well she’s still wearing it this week. I just keep it moisturized and put it in one or 2 pony tails.
I decided to add water to the lotta body because I wanted her hair to have hold, but still be soft and not hard. That made it easy for me to brush (not comb) her hair into the ponytails.
