I've Been Working on My Cornrow Braiding Skills

Posted by Navy Wifey Peters | Thursday, August 07, 2014 Categories:
Before having my daughter, I could not cornrow braid hair to save my life. I just couldn't do it. My mother told me to keep practicing, and eventually I'd get it. I still haven't perfected the art of cornrow braids, but I think that I have definitely gotten better. Since my daughter's hair is still short, I like to leave the little afro puff ends out instead of braiding the hair all the way to the end. And I must put bows in here hair to match her outfit. Anyhoo, check out my progress so far:

Last Summer: the braids on the left are just terrible...

Colorful bows are a must!

I really like this hairstyle.

Easter: my first attempt at what I call the "cornrow mohawk"
June: I snapped a quick pic of Krissy's hair why both she and my husband were napping in the waiting room at the Mayo Clinic.

another "cornrow mohawk" This is from last week.

I braided her hair like this Monday.
This is her 31 Bag that holds most of her hair stuff.

  1. You sure are getting better. I learned to braid when I was younger. My cousin actually taught me and I trained myself using dolls. While my Madison has a little bit more hair I hate braiding it because her hair is so thick. I usually just put it in a scrunchie and call it a day. :) Here's a great weekend!

    1. I tried to learn on dolls when I was a kid, but I just couldn't get it. I wanted to start braiding my daughter's hair because I've always heard that braiding helps hair grow. Her hair actually has grown a lot. She was one of those babies with the bald spot in the back of her head because no one told me about satin sheets for babies to protect hair from rubbing out. Also, when she was younger, I cut her hair even because she had pulled it out so bad. Some say I shouldn't have done that, but I couldn't do anything with her hair. I cut it down and just put cute headbands around it. So I'm glad that it's growing, and that I am getting better with braiding. Yay! :-)
