French braid = harder than I thougt

Growing up in Utah has given me a ridiculous affinity for super poofy hair. Its kind of ridiculous actually and I have pics where my hair is literally reaching for the ceiling. When I moved to Idaho I got made fun of because my bangs were so huge! ;-) I still love my hair to be big and I would probably fit right in in Texas. But the down side to loving poofy hair is that I never did anything else with it. It was usually always short and even if it was long I still ratted and sprayed. So I have NO IDEA how to do any thing else. For me its not such a big deal, but when it comes to Little Girl its kind of disheartening! I don't think a three year old would look so sweet with a rats nest on her head.  Its usually just in a pony tail or  straight down, and if anyone knows little girls, having hair straight down tends to get tangly and raggedy pretty quick. 
Anyway, the other day I decided to try something I have been wanting to do for a long time. 

A french braid.  

Now to many of you this may be no big deal, but to me it was harder than I expected! How do hold all three strands and pull up new ones and keep it tight all at the same time!? 

It took me a while, and Little Girl was super patient ( other than a few "OWs!") but the end result turned out better than I expected. With a little practice it might turn out great one day!

  2. I knew you could do it!! Now try the upside down braid and the inverted braid...ha ha. I will teach you, once you have the first one down, the rest are easy.
    Love you, My Girl,
