I can't braid my own hair either but what I can do is flat twist(two strand twist) it. If you can't get the braid down see if the twists works. For me it's so much easier and lays just as flat as braids.

I make the braids in the back and middle huge and then when I get towards the top and front, I make them smaller. Makes it easy to grip if you're not worried about making perfect parts.

Hey Ladies!
I'm posting on this thread because it won't allow me to start a topic....Confused
Anywho....I have 3c/4a hair that is 4 1/2 inches long....I recently had kinky twist for a couple of months...but my curlies kept coming out from the braid..it didnt looks so bad because of the style that I had...I tried beeswax, gel, Herbal Essence wax,spritz...nothing kept them from coming out of the braid.  I want to put in micros for a trip in 2 weeks, but I don't want to take the time to do it and the same thing happens.  Does any of you ladies have any suggestions on what I may be able to use to keep the curlies from coming out of the braid.  I don't care if its a homemade concoction...Holla at me....Pleaaaassseee.....Embarrassed
 
Thanks.
