    Default ♥ Yarn Braids! ♥ First time.



    Day One: Deep conditioned, did finger coils and pre-cut my yarn
    Day Two: Installed braids. I interloc'ed 2 strand of yarn and braided them onto each finger coil.
    Day Three: Burned ends.

    I absolutely love 'em!

    This method of finger coils first saved me so much time and frustration. The process of yarn braids was not hard or long and drawn out. If I weren't taking breaks and just being me
    I could've finished in 4 hours.

    I have 2 videos up about them; here's one:

    Awww, those are cute! I've been meaning to give these a try for a while now. I think I'll try them out once it gets cooler.

    Here are a couple of vids that I've been drooling over.

    Thanks guys! <3

    I know; I have weird timing. I think they'd make an awesome winter protective style! But I needed something to help me retain a lil more length without dealing with my hair ('fro has been irking me). My yarn braids are short, imo. And surprisingly, they aren't hot. I do keep them in a loose ponytail, while at home. Come winter 2012.....MBL yarn braids!!! yay!!

    Hmmm...Those wraps are very pretty...More like locs than regular yarn braids. I just wonder how well one can moisturize with their hair braided and ​wrapped...

    Aaah, yarn braids. I've worn them a few times and they're definitely a lot of fun. I added colored yarn to mine for "highlights" and got a ton of compliments.

    for my next set, instead of doing one or two pieces in pastels (lol) I'm going to try adding a splash of purple to the tips and maybe even the middles of the braids. i like how they just wrap it on there

    There was nothing strange about your hair. It was strange what your hair had to deal with.
