After my 6am appointment today, Julia started playing with styles. She declared that my hair was long enough to be braided into a fish bone braid.
I was doubtful, but she was right! Here are a few photos of my first fish bone braid.
Julia took hair from the sides of my head, starting in the front, and covered a central strip of hair running down the middle of my scalp to create this braid.
I asked Julia whether I could use a deep conditioner, but she says not yet. Apparently, I still have a little slippage in my kitchen. I'm not quite loc'd in the very back of my head, from my nape to my ears. But she guestimates that in 6 months or so deep conditioning will be a go!
