Yays! Finally I can braid again! I'm so happy! Ok, my braids when my hair is dry isn't that impressive, but anyways, they stay put together and nice, so thats great! My shortest layers are at chin lenght, my longest are at apl while the rest of my hair is a bit below bsl, so braiding is a bit problematic, but I did manage to make 2 dutch ones. Maybe in some months I can braid dry hair as well and it's not sticking out or falling apart! When I try to make a french braid on dry hair atm the top layers are falling out. But I'm happy for my dutchies, I love sleeping in braids!

Picture or it didn't happen:

I know the lighting and the quality isn't the best, it's night here in Norway atm, sorry for that :)

Those braids look great!! You did a wonderful job. Nice and even.

I am still trying to mast french braiding my own hair... Do you find dutch braiding to be easier or about the same as french?

I think dutch braiding is easier once you get the hang of it. It's still a bit unusual for me but I feel like I mmaster it, so that's something :D
ETA: btw, is it something wrong with the album section? I tried to upload my lenght shots but I got some error message everytime I tried.

Your braids look very nice! :)

I still haven't learned how to do a good English braid, anything like this and I have to call my mommy for help ;)

Thanks, Gumball and littlenvy! Keep practising, I remember I struggled learning to french braid but eventually I got the hang of it. When I was little I did English braids on my little sister who had waist lenght hair, I was so jelous!

Yes, you're not the only one, there is a problem with albums. It's been few days already.

Your braids are so nice and even! Great! :cheese:

Those Dutchies look great! Congrats! :)

I can do Dutch braids, but somehow I always knot up my fingers while braiding... that's why I do French much more often. Interesting to know that others find Dutch easier to do!

It's easyer to do dutch braids when I decide to go for straight hair because my hair is so silky and slippery, maybe that's why. Keep practicing, it took a long time before I got the hang of it, I was so used to doing french braids that my hands got comfused :D
