This past weekend I saw that Rory from CH/VC had posted their take on traditional french braids and was in love. A already had her hair parted for french braids because it's what she had wore to school on Friday. I've done a similar style like this before but never with bangs so I decided to give it a go. The outcome is great AND protective. Lately, no matter if her hair is down, up, or in braids, she's been getting small bumps around her temples as if the hair is pulled too tight although it's not. I'm a little baffled by that. This weekend we switched our hair products so maybe that'll help with it.
Speaking of hair products; do any of you use Giovanni's leave in? I've always heard a lot of great stuff about it and I'm finally sold. On it's on it wouldn't do anything for her hair because her hair soaks up moisture but when I added it to the LOC method, it does wonders. I wash her hair, put a bit of castor oil on and then the leave in. Her hair has been so shiny and soft!
