Criss-Cross Applesauce Hairstyle

I had no idea what to call this style. I was going to call it criss-cross cornbraid, with two layered cornbraids in the back. Then wonderful silly "N" said Mommy lets call it "Criss-Cross Applesauce" lol. It sounds better than the long title I chose so here's how to do the Criss-Cross Applesauce Hairstyle.

1.) Start with clean moisturized hair, part the hair slightly-slanted across the hair (from ear to ear but purposely off a little bit. )
2.) Separate the back from the front (using a hair scrunhcie or clip), we will use the back later.
3.) Next, I made 2 slanted cornbraids starting on her left side towards the front of her hair, going down across the middle of her hair.
4.) Starting on the right side I made 5 slanted cornbraids, going across the middle of her hair (in the opposite direction from step# 3.

5.) In the front (roughly where a bang would be) I made 2 cornbraids going towards the left. Then I made one more cornbraid behind the bang on the left.
6.) I unraveled the back of her hair and divided it, into two parts.
7.) I began making two separate rows/layers of corn braids going down.
Then I connected the last braid in step#5, to one of the braids in the first row in the back of her hair. This caused the hair to have a criss-cross effect.

8.) Then "N" picked out the color beads that she wanted to use ( I know they don't match lol, but it did have a Jamaican feel)
and I added the beads to her hair.

Tools used: Wide Tooth Comb
Bee Mine Juicy Spray (for shine)
Bee Mine Curly Butter (to help lay down the frizzies)

Thanks everyone! It took about 1 hour I forgot to add that in the post, there are youtube videos to help learn how to braid. When I was younger I would pick out my hairbows, so I let my daughter do the same it's a great way for them to express themselve.

Love the name!!!!!!
Do you use Bee Mine Curly Butter for all he hair styles? I tried it, but it didnt seem to work very well for R's hair.

Thanks!! I just use the curly butter lightly on her edges to help get a better hold on the baby hairs and keep them in the cornbraid. But I like to braid without any products, I will add plenty of moisturizer the night before I braid. My fingers grip the hair better without products in it. Have you tried shea butter? I heard that it's heavier and if the curly butter is too light that may do the trick.
