Three Strand Twists vs. Braids

So I got a few emails and a comment about what the difference is between these two. I know that everybody assumes that they are the same, but there is a big difference. Three strand twists involve three pieces of hair that you wrap one piece around the other two. With braiding it is the same three pieces of hair but you are braiding them into each other pulling hair from the left to the right.When I do a three strand twist out my hair is more tightly curled. With a braid out my hair has a wavy pattern and will hang more than a twist out. I have learned a long time ago that braid outs stretch my hair more. But three strand twists have more hair in a twists so they don't take so long to do on my hair. I hope this makes sense to everyone that was wondering what the difference is, it's a bit hard to explain without showing y'all. Have a wonderful Friday and weekend. Also Happy Easter to all those who celebrate it!

Three Strand Twists

So I have been wearing my hair down for the past few weeks and have needed a bit of a break from weekly styling. I wanted to do mini twists but needed to have more than just a day to do them do I opted for three strand twists these took me about three and a half hours. I wore them in a high bun this week and plan to keep them in until at least next weekend maybe longer.I have started working out again and need something that will keep my style from sweating out. So far I have post 12 pounds in 3 weeks so I am super excited!!! I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. So this is my twists on day one and the last is me waiting on my family for dinner, sorry I look so upset I had been waiting for 15 minutes in my warm car lol

So I co-washed my hair Thursday night from that wash n go that I attempted. I didn't post any pics of it because it was horrible, my hair was tangled and frizzy. Anyhoo, I used the Cantu Coconut Cream( I know that isn't the whole name but the name is too long to remember ) and I loved the results of my braid out. My hair is a bit big, but I can live with it lol. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
