Started Hair Braiding :-)

Recommended Posts

Guest JazzySmurf

This was one of the things that I missed as a little girl, and that I'm catching up on now :-) E------'s mom and I decided to have fun last night trying to braid each other's hair. It turns out that neither of us could do a French braid, so we spent some time practicing, and just in general messing around. Anyways, will share pics whenever one of them comes out well!!

Lucky you, I can not even do that. When my hair grows back out, I will likely just put it a pony tail. Nice thing about pony tails, if you put them low on your head, it passes for a male fashion. I set mine so that it passes right through the gap in the back of my cap.

I have grown my hair out since I was in elementary school. Only three times since then have I had a full haricut where all my hair came off. My hair is about down to my middle back now (I'm 36 now) and my wife is able to braid it all the way down. However if I try to do it myself I wind up knotting it all up and have to shower and condition it afterwards just to get the tanlges out. The only way I've ever been able to braid my own hair was to do one on each side... which I absolutely LOVE doing. And now that my hair is as long as it is when I braid my hair that way the braids actually reach down to my chest.

The only problem I have now is that I've got MPB going on up top but not too bad. That and my hair is really thin which makes for thin braids...

You are more than welcome to braid my hair. :)

There are some craft kits at Walmart that involve braiding so that may be a good start before you move on to hair. I can only do a simple braid.

They used to make tools to aid in the fancier braids like hairbone braids. You could search for hair braiding aids/tools on amazon and see what comes up. How to videos can help also. Lots of angled mirrors help when you're learning also. Or dolls, like china dolls or any dolls with "real" hair. It takes time to learn and practice. Many moms start teaching female bodied kids to braid hair as soon as their hair is long enough, simply by braiding it for them. When we're young we can learn very easily by example so hair braiding seems like second nature to some people.

Another thing...wet or dry hair? It's easier to braid damp clean hair than it is to braid dry hair....and freshly clean dry hair is just a pain hah.

A leave in conditioner on damp hair can help as well.

I've never tried this, I must try it. I must also put a bone in my hair for my cave woman days.

      I just feel like i am crazy... i keep doubting myself constently. I think i am trans, but everyone says no.  Maybe i am just confused and lost in a sea of raw emotions.  I keep feeling like i am trans, but i dont honestly know anymore. Maybe i am just confused myself, or just delusional.   Maybe i should just stop and expect me beginning so uncomfortable in my own skin.    Sorry for the vent. I just feel like it the only place i can express myself, i guess.   Thanks for reading. Sorry for the vent.

      Thanks Vicky,  I know I have a long way to go, just started this a few weeks ago. I am just so damn happy that it came together as well as it did. Far from perfect, but that’s just me. It’s amazing the amount of relief and happiness I’m feeling right now. And the wife seems to approve so that helps. 😁😁😁

      Hi! and Welcome!

      A word of hope and dread, I began my Transition 20 years ago as a CD, which lasted 12 years, and FULL TIME with all the the work 8 years ago, and I am still not finished.  Don't worry about it though, you are living your truth and that is the most important.  A happy, friendly attitude with people will more than offset any little defects we have, but that is the same for all our life.

      For the first time I actually put everything together. From the gaff and false boobies 😁 to all the makeup. I’ve got to be honest I saw  my body profile and almost cried. Still need more practice with the makeup but it wasn’t to bad for my first attempt. Also need to grow my hair more or get a wig.

      Gooseberries grow best up north.  In fact, a bush won't grow berries, if it there wasn't at least one hard freeze over the winter time.
    • Ellora
      Ive never heard of Gooseberries, I must try them now.

      Eeeek, Nettle in the nethers! No bueno!   One thing men and women have in common, is they both have need to squat then #2 is involved.

      We have heat, and a wide variation. all within a 20min drive. =). In the winter, you can play at the beach, drive 20-30 mins inland and play in the snow =).

      Eeeek! too hot! AC all the way!

      Ace of Base did a cover of Bananarama's song "Cruel Summer." in 1998. The Original song from Bananarama came out in 1984, which dates me back to 18yrs old when it was in the "Karate Kid." Lots of nostalgia for me .

      That sounds so perfect I bet you could make a lot of nice desserts with all the fresh fruit!
    • tracy_j
      Except for the sun it sounds good over there. Here we live with a wide variation, but I like the heat better than most. I'm loving it here at the moment picking Loganberries directly off the bush as a snack between meals lol. The redcurrents are at their prime too! A short while ago it was Gooseberries and soon be time for doing the same with blackberries. I love to pick things direct rather than buying at the supermarket.   Tracy
