I recently posted a video showing how I do my Corkscrew Braidout. I call it this because of the way I roll the ends of each braid so that it makes a smooth spiral.
The look is great for special occasions or when I just want big, curly hair. To date, I have been able to keep the look going for about three days before it starts to look a little less than cute.
I "Pineapple" the
Curls on top of my
I do the pineapple method by pushing the curls up on top of my head and wrapping it up with my satin scarf and bonnet.
First, I push all of my hair upwards and then use bobby pins to keep it pulled back off of my face and up in the back.
Then I use a loose band to put all of my hair in so it stays up. After the hair is up, I fold a square satin scarf in half to make a triangle and use that to wrap around the
sides so they don't get fuzzy.
I protect the look
with a satin bonnet
Finally, I put my satin bonnet on over the whole thing to protect the curls at the top and that's it.
I like the lightweight feel of this style so I just use a tiny bit of coconut oil each night before I wrap it up. When the look starts to get old, I either co-wash or just pull it back into a bun for another day or so.
