Braidout Instructions a la Moniero

By January 27th, 202117 Comments

Remember the gorgeous Moniero? Well, she responded to the 4a/b/c All Call with a quick and easy braidout tutorial! Check her out:

It’s me again……my signature style has to be the braidout. I swear by it, and it helps stretch my hair tremendously. Here are my steps:

1st….Divide the hair into 4 sections.

2nd…Co-Wash with Hello Hydration.

3rd…Deep condition with Neutrogena Triple Moisture (Note: The conditioner already contains Olive Oil and Sweet Almond Oil, but I add extra of each.)

4th…Rinse the hair and then add JessiCurl Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment (loves this stuff).

5th…In each section I do about 3 or 4 braids (Note: In the front I always braid towards my face….it allows me to shape my braidout to fit my face).

6th…After my hair is completely dry, I apply Olive Oil to each braid.

I try to rebraid my hair daily, but when I am lazy 4 ponytails will do. I have attached some of my favorite braidout pictures. These are from the end of July and right after a henna treatment.

Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the post. Love your hair and I will be trying this braid out style. I love the way Jessicurl makes my hair look, but I can't use it. I feel like I am allergic to everything, but I am still looking and trying to make concoctions that will give me the same result. Thanks again for the tips on how to achieve an awesome braid out, and the tips do help. Live, Love, & Peace! ~ Sweetsop

    Which fragrance do you use for the jessicurl?

  • Moniero says:

    @Anonymous…..I use the Jessicurl as a leave in….the braidout is obtained by plaits…

    Will you please clarify… Is your braidout obtained by using plaits or cornrows?

    Great hair!
    Do you leave the Jessicurl treatment in the hair and then braid out with no rinsing as if it were a leave in?

  • Moniero says:

    @Brownlady…I trim my hair every 3 to 4 months if my ends are feeling rough….if not I go longer. When its time to trim, I will do a braid out and by the third day when my hair is really stretched, I will trim. Yes, I do prefer the braid out over the twist out. My hair shrinks up alot, so the braid out stretches it more. Thanks for the compliments!!!!

    @EVERYONE…Thanks Ladies…I will try to update my Fotki soon…I am a second grade teacher so my nights are full of planning!

    I love love love your hair!! How often do you trim your ends? Do you straighten it to trim it? Do you prefer the braid out as opposed to the twist out.

    This is making me love the 4a/b hair. I was thinking it's just going to get bushier and bushier but I love the soft cottony look and feel. This Sunday makes 4 months for me (still can't believe it)!

    Your hair is absolutely gorgeous, I love it. I may be a minority by saying this,I am not sure but I have mostly 3c hair with a little 4a on the lower sides of my hair by my ears and I always wanted all 4a hair. I love the way it looks… again beautiful hair.

    I love it! Her hair looks similar to mine! she's a strong woman to do braid outs every night! I know I can't! I get too tired. Olive oil on freshly cleaned dry hair makes the best kinky fro! she never lied about that one!
