Last night while doing my blog rounds, I came across this post at The Anti-Hair Slave about fishtail braids. This particular style of braiding has always intrigued me, from the time I was a child (many of the little Chinese girls at my elementary school wore them). Obviously, that was WAY back in the day, ages before we even fathomed the idea of YouTube. Until last night, I had forgotten about them.
I took to YouTube to look for tutorials. This one was extremely helpful:
I washed my hair on Monday, but was already starting to look pretty limp (guess I've been going hard on the argan oil LOL). I couldn't possibly wear my hair down, so I decided I'd do the fishtail braid for work today.
I'm satisfied with the result considering it was my first time. Practice makes perfect, and I will definitely be trying this style again soon!
