This is a braid out! I started by washing my hair with Mizani moisturizing shampoo and intensive condititoner. I put on yes to cucumbers as a leave in. Then i section my hair from ear to ear to make to rows of french braids - 4 in the back and 7 in the front. I put shea moisture coconut and hibiscus curl and hold smoothie and EVOO on each section to braid. I set the ends on white perm rods. I sat under the dryer for 1 hour and let dry over night.
