Thanks, Maddie! I have my hair braided now. It's what I do sometimes to manage my hair after I wash it. I don't use a relaxer and my hair has a lot of volume so I section it and put it in plaits to dry. I usually part it down the middle, and if I'm not going to blow dry it or flat iron it later, I take those two sections and divide them into two or three more which I twist and hold in place with butterfly clips so they don't dry out. I add a moisture lotion to each section and reclip, then I start putting in plaits. Sometimes I wear it this way and sometimes I pull the plaits into a ponytail or other style. It amazes me when people compliment my hair like that, lol. To me it is almost like going outside with hair curlers, but so many people from different cultures have complimented it that I leave it that way for days. Sometimes I use it to transition to skinny braids and vice versa.
