Chocolate Brides: Locs, braids, etc.

Recommended Posts

Hello Beautiful Brides!

 

I've seen a few posts here and there so I thought I'd start a new thread for the natural haired women in my midst, especially those with locs or braids.  Any ideas or suggestions?

 

I've been growing my locs for about 4 years and maintain them myself.  For the special day, I want a great updo but have not decided on a style yet.  What have you ladies done/do you have planned?

Awww, wish people would have responded.  I too am natural, and looking for styles for my 12/1/12 wedding!  Do you have pics of how you wore your hair?

I'm natural as well and I've been wondering what would be the prettiest style for me. I just cut my hair really short a month before my FI proposed. Now I'm wondering if I should have done that. I have until October so I think I will be wearing my hair in tiny twists as a low maintenance protective style so it can grow. As long as I keep it healthy and moisturized I should gain 4 inches by then.

I'm natural and have no idea what to do with my hair, especially since I will be there 5 days before my wedding.  I have no idea what to do because I have a huge fro.

I know they do hair in the DR but I'm not sure how well they do natural hair. I try to avoid heat. But I'm fine with heat to style my hair for the wedding. I just don't want excessive heat on my hair. I say just make sure you have plenty of conditioner and oil with you for the trip so you can keep your hair protected while you enjoy the beach.

I have been natural for over a year now. I am trying to figure out what to do with my hair also. I am thinking about getting a sew-in, something simple that will hold up! Has anyone come up with any ideas?

Have any of you tried a product called Kinky Curly?? Google it....it may be an option for you.

My other suggestions would be:

  • straw set
  • cane row braids the night before wedding into a side part style. Undo the day of and leave it crinkly and put a beautiful big funky flower on one side
  • Twists (then you can do a half up/down style depending on length)
  • slick it back into a ponytail if its long enough and do a side low bun (you can even buy amazing bun pieces to put in)
  • high bun. Make sure the sides are well slicked tho

Gosh...I could talk hair all day. Lol!
