I have always wanted to know how to French braid. But it looked hard, and I have a lot of hair, and after about half an hour, annoyed with how tangled my hair got and how tired my arms were balanced over my head, I gave up, just pulling it into its normal bun or braiding it normally. But French braiding seemed to have the best of both worlds - like a braid, it kept the ends from getting tangled, and like a bun, it kept it up off my face.
So today I started figuring it out. It's not proper French braiding - just two little ones on the sides of my head and then I pulled the rest into a bun and got lazy - but it's a start.
Sometimes little things just make you happy, you know?
