Hey Curlies,

With the weather being so warm lately, I’ve been itching for a low maintenance style. I even considered going to a shop to get my hair braided, but then I thought, “Why don’t I just do it myself?”

I know mini twists work well for my hair (see my full regimen here), but mini braids sounded like a nightmare to install and take down. This led me to larger, chunkier braids.

Here is a glimpse of what my wash day looked like:

  1. I cleansed my hair with Bask & Bloom Essentials’ Shampoo Bar (see my video tutorial here), then followed up with their Brahmi Root Hair Masque for 30 minutes before rinsing with cool water.
  2. Next, I moisturized and detangled my hair with Bask & Bloom’s More Moisture Cream and Silky Aloe Curl Pudding before blow drying my hair using the tension method. See the tutorial here.
  3. Starting from the back, I created big block parts and began braiding.

I left my braids in for about 10 days before taking them down for a braidout.

Over the week, I applied Bask & Bloom’s Herbal Oil to my scalp and braids. They were so easy to take care of, and I left my hair in the same style the entire time.


I definitely plan on wearing them again in the next couple of weeks.
