Natural Hair Tutorial: Super Defined Braid Out

This is how I achieved my super defined braid out. It took about 45 minutes to moisturize and then braid my hair.

Let me know what you think!

    Hey! I love the video! My question is though, when you did this hairstyle did you rebraid at night? If so, would you still have to spray and rewet the hair to do this?

      Hey love,
      yes I rebraided at night because I wanted my hair to have great definition in the morning.
      No I didn’t rewet my hair at night, my hair retains moisture very well. If your hair needs to be remoisturized then listen to your hair and give it what it needs. :)

        Thanks! Following your old hair regimen my hair definitely retains more of its moisture :) I just wasn’t sure if I had to do the whole process of adding shea butter at night! This actually helps me more now because I was doing the same thing in terms of rewetting my hair when I redid the two strand twist at night! Thanks :)

      Same here…all of my braid outs/twists outs turn out to be big fros…

  • nopicaniniplease

    Sorry, no big chop for me. I am doing this slowly, I am wearing my box braids and alternating twists until I see enough hair growth for me to take it out. Any advice or criticism for me?
