After 23 months transitioning, I finally figured out how to preserve my B-n-C or T-n-C!
I am loving my braid-N-curl result!
Though I am still hating my ends, I decided that my last braid out did not look great because I failed to properly roll the ends.
If you are transitioning and have 3″ or less relaxed ends remaining, I recommend:
- Technique: Braid just past the line of demarcation and curl (flexi or perm rods) the rest
- Smooth Ends: Use your fingers or rolling papers to ensure that the ends are smoothly around the rod
- To “Set” the Curl: Use foam or setting lotion
