Braided Locs, part II

I've been super lazy with my locs lately. But I don't mind it. I'm not "itching" to do anything and for a color fiend, I appreciate these moments of being satisfied with my locs. The other day I washed and braided them. I've done this before. This time, however, I decided to spruce it up by adding a flower.



'Scuse the blurriness. I've been rocking braided locs for several days now. This is the BEST style ever. Braids make for the best protective styles and last unbelievably long. In fact, unless I wash the locs, the crinkle-effect still goes on strong.


I tweaked my technique this go round and used rubber bands to bend over the end of the locs.


The last time I did this I had great crimps but straight ends. Not a good look. Let's see how long I can rock the braids for. I'm going to get my Nicey Nash on and rock a different flower every day. The braids HAVE to be up in some kind of ponytail. I mean, would y'all still love me if I wore them like this...



Negative. HA!!!  People who see me with the braids always think that I've combed out my locs. I can see how. When braided, they don't look like locs at all. Pretty groovy, uh? What do y'all think? Any fans of the braided locs?

hmmm, I likes your braids... I am too lazy to braid my locs, and I don't look good with crimpy locs at this length :(. I'm also feeling your Niecy Nash steeze lol.

Wow, I may have to try it! You're right, it SERIOUSLY looks like you have no locs at all when they're braided!

I love braided locs! Too bad mine are still short so whenever I try braiding them they come out looking awkward.

When I first saw the picture I also thought that you'd combed out your locs! It's a very cute style and when my hair grows out more I will try it.
