Gorgeous Updo With Box Braids





Aisha writes:

On the 9th or 10th day of Anisa having her box braids I decided to change them up a bit. I sprayed her braids with a simple water and conditioner mixture and began braiding the front section of her box braids. I gathered a small section near her ear and made a cornrow that led up to the center of her head. I head the other braids out of the way with an ouchless band. I continued to grab sections of her box braids in the front and made cornrows that also led to the center of her head. Anisa ended up falling asleep while I was braiding so I was only able to braid the front section. I was still happy with the results. I gathered the cornrowed section in the front and joined it with the loose box braids in the back. I secured her braids in a high ponytail with an ouchless band. Next, I sprayed the ponytail section and rolled it up using satin covered sponge rollers that were purchased from Wal-Mart. I covered her hair with a satin bonnet for bed and removed the rollers the following day. I did not separate her curls. I knew that they would loosen up and fall a bit on their own while she was at school. Overall, this was a very quick and easy style that gave her box braids a new look.
