hey yall! =) well, it's officially been a month since i put A's mini braids in and i must say, i'm very impressed. the protective challange has ended over at beads braids & beyond on facebook. i thought i was going to take the braids out last weekend but i changed my mind. i've washed them and that caused a lot of frizz but i still think they look pretty good. she likes them a lot so i'm in no real hurry to take them out just yet. she wore 2 french braids for the last couple of days so now they are all crinkley and cute. i left the braids at the top to keep her hair out of her face and food and it looks super cute. i did an upclose of the top so you can see some of the frizz.
