Repurposed style: Half braidout on short Type 4 hair.

I love when a style starts out looking one way, then you can make a few changes and the style looks completely different.A short while ago, I wrote a review on The Pomade Shop's Growth Essentials Rosemary Pomade, and I raved about the amazing braidout it gave us on The Princess's hair. I was curious to see what kind of braid out we would get on Li'l Bit's hair. Here is the style we started with:
I started by rubbing some olive oil into my fingers. I always try not to manipulate Li'l Bit's hair with dry hands, dry hands would take much needed moisture away from her hair. Then I began carefully unbraiding her hair, starting with the braids on the bottom of her head and working my way up. I did not manipulate the hair after unbraiding it, and I did not unbraid the top two braids on each side. I added a headband and this is the finished product:

I love the definition we got from the braid out:
Once again, another great braid out using our new Pomade from The Pomade Shop. I can't wait to try this on Ally's hair once we are done with box braids. 

I just love how much Li't Bit's hair has grown since we have switched over to using products with all natural ingredients. :)

I hope your Sundays are full of smiles and laughter! 


  1. Oh I love this look! Both looks actually. I think the cornrowed ponytailed style would be a perfect protective style for GDL, I may have to "borrow" that one!

  2. Thank you Tav. GDL would rock this style! You should do it. :) Of course, she would have a lot more hang than my Li'l Bit. I hope you show me if you do it!

  3. Thank you, Precious! I think this is the best braid out Li'l Bit's hair has ever seen. :)

  4. Absolutely gorgeous!! I can't wait until Xiomara's hair gets long!!
