BBH has been wearing braids for a few weeks now. We shared with you how unravel braids and retouch as needed via our Three Strands of Separation video. Now we’d like to share how to restyle braids w/a fresh look. In this video we show you have to achieve wavy or “crinkly” braids by simply setting the hair over night.

TECHNIQUE: Braiding box braids to scalp to achieve wavy/crinkle effect, creating a fresh new look with braids.

PRODUCTS USED: Water bottle mixed with Kinky-Curly Knot Today; Queen Helene “Royal Curl” Curl Smoothing Oil, Queen Helene “Royal Curl” Curl Shaping Creme .

TOOLS USED: Alligator clips for sectioning off hair, small bands and sleep cap.

STEP BY STEP: Section off hair with clips; lightly spritz with water mix; apply oil by rubbing into hands and massage into braids by pressing them between hands; Top with gel/styling creme and reseal ends as you go; Braid box braids to scalp, and band about an inch from bottom, reseal ends as needed. Cover with sleep cap at night and take down in the AM.

Hair looks fresh and so clean, clean! This is perfect for stretching those summer braids or twists a few more days while you get the kiddos ready for school. Enjoy and let us know what you think!!
