Glow-Up Journey Series: Learning How to Braid My Own Hair

Hello Glamour Dolls! Today I want to share with you all that I have been practicing and learning how to braid my own hair! So excited about this new journey. I’ve never been able to braid my own hair with weave. I can braid my natural hair but I am also not that great at that either. Learning how to do my own braids or adding extensions to my hair has been something I’ve always wanted to learn how to do. I normally go to a salon but this time I decided it was time I stop being scared and have faith that I can do this.

For this look, I decided to learn how to do feed-in braids and knotless braids. I watched a few videos on YouTube that I thought to be really helpful and started out with something simple. By simple I mean medium/jumbo size braids. I didn’t want to spend so much time creating sections/parts in my hair, and since this is new for me I thought it would be best I start there first. I saw a girl on TikTok with a Pop Smoke hairstyle which is also known as Jumbo Tribal Braids, she did two feed-in braids in the front and for the back she did knotless. It was so cute that I wanted to try that particular style myself.

I think that overall I did a pretty good job for my first time! I thought the feed-in braids would be hard to do but it was actually a little easier to do than the knotless. For the knotless braids, I did the rubber band method with crochet. Anytime I go on vacation I prefer to wear my hair in a protective style. These braids looked so good on me and were perfect for our vacation. I would love to try doing this style again, but next time I may add more braids in the back.

Here is the finish look. This look is giving me like a Bohemian Goddess vibe. I love it!
