Hello, I am not new to brading, but I did go out on an limb this time and get this synthetic hair with the tree (cornrowed) braids I got done yesterday. Its Outre Batik Deep wave bulk and it is curly, pretty and a tangly mess all at the same time!

I am in a wedding 10/10 and I fear that I cant tame this stuff in time. It just sheds and the more I try to detangle, the more it sheds I clip the ends and everything alot but I dont want to put alot of product in my hair that is not going to help. I will post pics but can I get some started advice? Water, defrizz?  Something?? I'm afraid to wear it down because I will probably shed all over my patients!

Anybody with ideas???

Thanks in advance ladies  Ermm

I have this in right now, in the super wave. It's pretty tangle but I don't comb it much. Pulling at it will only disrupt the curl pattern. I just put in some creme press to tame it and left it alone.

I heard that could happen with Batik. It's so soft it tangles with the rubbing of clothes, sweat, etc. I have always used Freetress hair for my tree braids with no problem. The best results are with the Freetress deep wave. It lasted up to 3 months with weekly washing and swimming.

Thanks ladies, I have continued to "not mess with it," but I think this hair is best for micros because the invisible braids I have upfront are doing perfect. But the rest, I keep cutting off excess and as soon as it dries it tangles....

I know this sounds crazy, but maybe I could cut some of this out and crochet in some human hair so the style won't be a complete waste??? The workmanship is great but I feel it is wasted on this frizzled hair. I just don't know about the wedding i feel like it will frizzle and everything before we even get to the reception hall...  IDK
 Here is a FB album I put together so you could see it.

This is my first go round with tree braids and I love the concept, same with crochet cuz I used to wear them as a teen but man, this batik has severely disappointed me.  Dead

Mine also completely frizzed up into a puffball, and I didn't help the situation by constantly pulling at the knots. But last night I braided it all up in big braids and dipped it in hot water and it's all better now. Big smile  But then again that was pretty much the original wave pattern for this hair. Since yours is curly maybe you can rod it? I dunno.
