    Default Post-Multiple Braids (with Pics!)

    ETA: Please DO post your multiple braid pics! The title is somewhat subject to interpretation, and I've loved seeing everyone else's braids.

    So, if you saw my thread from last week you'll know that I decided to put my hair into a bunch of small braids to avoid dealing with it during exams. I finished my last exam today (a grueling 3 hours of Chinese) and took them all out. The top of my head definitely started to look a bit fuzzy, probably because I wore headbands every day to cover up how crappy the braids looked up at the top-- I can never figure out how to get them evenly distributed.

    I really hope that other people will give this a try-- it's really fun, and you get the funniest reactions! I had tons of people who asked if it was my real hair, and a couple people who didn't believe me when I told them it was.

    So, the part you all actually care about: the pics!

    My hair this afternoon, just before I took the braids out (excuse my loose, sloppy shirt):


    My hair in a braid, as someone on the last thread requested:


    And finally, crazy post-braid crimped hair (sorry about the super-greasy scalp: I'm going to wash it right after I do this post):

    I love the post-braids picture; so delightfully textured. Too bad you're due for a wash now.

    The one where you braided them all together was my favorite. Boy, that was soooooo cool!!!

    Three hours of Chinese - I'd have pulled all my hair out by the end of that..... Hope you did well and are moving on into the next exciting step in your life's adventure.

    Thanks for sharing the pics of your amazing hair.

    My fiancee's hair I braided last summer. It's longer now but haven't had a chance (time) to put in mini-braids again.



    More recent cornrows, but only 9.





    And some cornrows braided toward the centerline of her head, like a mohawk.

    My best friend and I did this when we were in high school, some 20+ years ago! I loved it then, and I've been wanting to do it again. I think I'd need help for the back, though. Hmmm... my mom can't braid. I'll have to ask my sister-in-law if she'll help me!

    It looks great when it's out of the braids. I love those kinky kind of wavies you've got going on.

    Eternallyverden, I apologize, I thought your thread title said to "post multiple braid pics", not "post-multiple". How a hyphen can make the same words totally different! Wasn't trying to hijack your thread!

    Those are some impressive braid waves!

    I'm tempted to do this ...
