I’ve been rocking my tapered cut since June, but do you know what? I think I’m ready for a new protective style for fall. Enter: Feed-In Stitch braids. I’ve had my eye on this braiding style for a while, and these pictures have absolutely sold me on attempting this style for early fall.
What Are Feed In Stich Braids?
According to Ebena.net:
“The Stitch Braids evolved from styles like Ghana Braids and Feed-in Cornrows. However, in stitch braiding, the thick lines of hair are sectioned into elegant box shapes of hairy razor-straight lines. Holding pomade is applied to every line of hair. It is also applied to the bottom of the roots of these sections. All strands of hair are aligned in place by the pomade.”
“For the regular feed-in braids, we use the index and middle finger as well as Shine n’ Jam Conditioning Gel to achieve the look. The stitch technique requires the use of the pinky finger with a nail to create the stitches and lines as well as more of the product to keep the stitches in place.”
And for your viewing pleasure, I give you feed-in stitch braids:
