After wearing my microbraids for 4 weeks I decided to change them from straight to wavy via a braidout. Although I had human hair extensions, the braider at the shop told me to make sure I do it the way I would do it with synthetic hair … not sure why. Anyhoo, this is video number 4 in my mircobraids series detailing how I did my fancy ole braidout on these human hair microbraids. This will work (even better) on synthetic hair as well.
You will need:
- the ability to braid
- a deep heat-resistant cup with a handle
- a towel
- a steady hand
- Braid microbraids into 8-12 tight braids. Be sure to braid all the way to the end to insure the pattern goes all the way down the hair.
- Boil water & place into deep heat-resistant cup
- Dip each large braid as far into cup as possible (do not scald yourself please, I will not be held liable for such things), counting to 30
- Holding towel below, CAREFULLY remove hot braid from cup, place into towel and squeeze dry
- Repeat steps 3 & 4 for all braids
- Let hair dry entirely then remove larger braids and you will be left with a wavey braidout pattern. Voila!
As always I showed you how to do the do in the fancy-like video contraption below. Getchusome:
Anyone know why the braider insisted I use hot water even though this was human hair? Let me know.
and stay tuned for much requested video about how I took these braids down super quickly!
