Yes! You read that title correctly. I did a braid out on dry hair and it came out marvelously. At first I was thinking that my hair would be dry if I did a braid out with dry hair since it wouldn’t have the moisture from the water or conditioner. Well I was wrong. My hair came out perfectly moisturize and even better than that, it retained a lot of length. That’s the downfall of wet twist outs or braid outs; the hair shrinks as it dries so you end up with length that’s not as long as it could be and not as compact as a wash and go. While I do think this dry braid out is magnificent, it does have one minor fall back. This fall back may have a solution but this is my first dry braid out so I am sure I will find one with time or you guys can tell me your best solution. So here it is: Detangling your natural coif dry! Ahhhh I know! It wasn’t as bad as it sounds but it did end up being quite time-consuming considering you have to be very gentle with your natural hair when attempting to detangle while its dry. On the up side, I experienced minimal shedding and just about no breakage.
