First successful braidout

Ever since I embarked upon a hair journey, I have had so many failed attempts at a braidout that I had actually given up and then, accidentally, I stumbled across the best method for me.

It's actually quite simple. I moisturise and seal my hair in sections with S-Curl Activator/Moisturiser and seal with coconut oil. I then cornrow my hair and do a bantu knot. Next morning, I have curls. I am going to keep playing with it until I figure out the perfect size and positioning of the cornrows. Hopefully I can get the hang of it so I can eventually rock this style.
