First Attempt at Yarn Braid Extensions

Christolla loves her hair!

It was a long slow ordeal but the results were worth the effort. Christolla is so happy with her hair & couldn't wait to go to school today to show her friends. It took around ten hours over two days so it's time intensive but I had never braided under hand before nor tried to put in extensions or beads, so I was a super rookie. I watched a couple of videos on You Tube that showed how to do them & thought I can do this & I did. Yeahhhh. Christolla is amazingly patient & she just sat without complaining the whole time.
The last few braids are definetely tighter & look better than the first few attempts so next time I do her hair hopefully it looks better & goes a little quicker.
As soon as we finished her hair Christolla said "Mommy lets go outside & let the wind blow my hair."
I may have to cut the front braids a little shorter to prevent her from sucking on them but other than that we are happy with the results. Isn't she a cutie?

They look great! She is beautiful!


PS I can't braid under hand and have always braided over hand with the yarn braids and they still turn out good.
