Braid style inspired by Youtube- Channyboo9023 and Tracee Ellis Ross

Here is the video Channyboo posted.  I saw it come up on Curly Nikki's blog :-)
Go to about @7:15 to get to the style - I thought it came out dope... So I copied it!  I just said I was looking to get my hair off my face and out of my hands and this was perfect.

And here is my take on it!

This is how I set it afer I washed it.  I used Kiss My face gel mixed with castor oil and braided it up while soaking wet to stretch it out as it dried. 

It didn't dry overnight though :-( so I had to blow it out a little to braid it quickly in the morning.  I was struggling to get it braided neatly and not tear up my hair as is was trying to shrink up and tangle.  A 3 min hit with the blow dryer helped a lot. And here is how I wore it to work.
I wore variations of it for the next few days.

And a vid of the take-down with a quick show and tell.


  1. Beautiful. You wouldn't happen to have pictures of the back, would you? I watched the video too...and I am really unsure how the back is supposed to look. Does it fall into two individual braids all the way back, or are they some how connected, and braided together?

    Thank you,


  2. I love your hair!!!! candice/naturaldancer

  3. Thanks! and... I'm wearing it again today! lol- I lied.
    I will snap a pic of the back. Today I just did a bun. I have been kinda freestyling depending on how I feel.

  4. So cute and chic!
