Hairstyle | Super textured braidout

In the midst of filming a totally unrelated video for YouTube I thought I'd share today's hairstyle - a super textured braidout.

I've got so much texlaxed hair and 16 weeks of natural new growth now it's just easier to do my hair in several small braids as opposed to the 2-4 I used to do for my whole head. Doing several braids has kept the tangles at bay as putting them in has made me actually detangle my hair fully for a change. I'm so lazy usually and just throw my hair up in a bun 24/7 when relaxer day is imminent.

I think I did about 4-5 braids on each side for this style before bed and slept on them overnight before gently unravelling the next morning. With this many braids I end up with big, textured and fluffy hair. When I only do 2-4 braids my hair seems to stay more compact and smooth usually. I've always loved big hair - though not normally on me - but I'm really starting to love how thick my hair can at least appear with super textured styles.

Do you like to do braidouts?
