View Full Version : 6 strand braid. I'm getting better. *pics*

I hope to one day be able to do a 6 strand braid behind me instead of to the side.



A side view. This braid is wide and flat.


When I got near the bottom of the braid I dropped one of the strands and didn't even notice. LOL, That's why I'm only showing the top half.

Lovely! Much better than I can manage so far! Practice makes perfect :o)

Gorgeous!! :thud: It's so intricate! I have only just barely started learning the 5-strand braid, so I'm a little jealous of your skills :D

March 18th, 2012, 02:58 PM
Wow; nice! I don't know how that's done.

March 18th, 2012, 03:01 PM
woow..good job and such nice thickness :D

March 18th, 2012, 03:04 PM
Really neat job! Bravo! :)

March 18th, 2012, 03:05 PM
Wow, I need to learn that one. I only can do up to 5 strands so far and even that won't turn out as good as yours. Nice job :)

March 18th, 2012, 03:05 PM
Beautiful job!! I'm still trying to get a 4 strand down :p Your picture of the 6 strand is a beautiful inspiration! :)

Beautiful braid! The 4 strand is kicking my butt.:whip:

March 18th, 2012, 08:21 PM
So cool! My arms are tired just looking at it!

March 18th, 2012, 08:30 PM
This is amazing!! I'm obsessed with braids. Must learn it!

March 18th, 2012, 08:54 PM

So pretty!

It looks lovely! How did you get it to look so neat? I can do 5 strands, but it gets frizzy in minutes!

March 19th, 2012, 02:01 AM

Wow, you did an incredible job! I love it!

March 19th, 2012, 02:03 AM
I love it. Good work!

Very pretty, well done! Is it done with the same technique than a 4 strand, weaved from one side to another?

Yep. I could do a 7 or 8 strand the same way but 1/4 of the down the braid I get lost. LOL

My hair is a bit like horse hair. Also I don't shampoo so it doesn't really frizz anymore.

Do you oil before braiding?

March 19th, 2012, 05:52 AM
Excellent job! :flowers:

March 19th, 2012, 08:09 PM
Do you oil before braiding?
Nope. I don't oil my hair. I don't need to because I wash my hair with just water and my natural oils are all over my hair. Extra oil would just be extra oil lol.

During the winter I had to use conditioner to moisturize but now with this warm/hot weather all I gotta do is hop in a cool shower and rinse till I get cold and step out into the hot air. I only have AC in my bedroom, everywhere else I just have fans.

That looks amazing! I can't even master a french braid, never mind something this complex.

March 20th, 2012, 02:08 PM
I've been trying to master the 5 strand french/dutch braid, but I know what I'm doing next. That is truly lovely!

March 20th, 2012, 02:11 PM
Very nice. Wouldn't be able to do it, I think. :)

March 20th, 2012, 11:48 PM
Your braid turned out lovely! I can remember a time when I was awed by the existence of a 4 strand braid! Ha ha. Keep up the great work!:toast:

March 20th, 2012, 11:53 PM
Wow, that is impressive!

Beautiful! You make me wanna try it :D But I'm kind of hopeless...
