Looking for some naturally curly hair styles?
Well, Meghan K. from Portland, Oregon was, too, so I settled down and did this hairdo on my hair for her the other day.
I’m practicing flat twisting my hair as much as I can and I finally got the courage up to do a braided Mohawk!
I really hope you like this Meghan!
For braiding the hair you’ll need:
Just didn’t have the heart to crop out my adorable little nephew 😀
To begin, I parted my hair down the middle and clipped the left section out of the way.
I’m right handed, so I typically do the right side of my hair first without even thinking about it.
Tips On Braiding Your Own Hair
* The first thing I wanna say is not to get discouraged when you first start flat twisting/cornrowing your hair. It can be kind of difficult, especially getting to the very top of your head.
*I never ever, ever, ever do flat twists going straight back because itâ€™s super hard to do that on the very top of your head. I always do my flat twists on an angle. Itâ€™s easier for me.
*Make sure you give yourself enough time so you’re not rushing. Actually, I prefer to give myself more time than I actually need so I can take as many breaks as I want to.
*I like to eat (you probably weren’t expecting that) so I always give myself lots of snacks while I’m doing my hair. And by the way, fruit snacks and fruit roll-upâ€™s are really good!
*The first couple times I did my hair I had to take it back out again because I ended up braiding too tightly. Be careful of this and take out any braids that are too tight because they can damage your hair, or ever pull it out!
Overall I just say take your time and try to enjoy the experience as much as you can!
Thanks Meghan for reaching out!
