  • Braiding?

    My hair is finally long enough that I can do some braids (although nothing too elaborate, it's not that long). I was looking around on the internet for something unique or directions to some braids I've never tried, or even some help on how to braid easier on my own head. I have no problems braiding others but my own is sort of hard The problem is that I can't find anything. Does anyone have and books or websites they can recommend on braiding hair?

    "The Triple Goddess as Maiden, Mother and Crone, is a relatively new concept which was made popular during the 20th century. Hekate is today most often equated to the Crone aspect of this triplicate archetypal image, but this idea of Hekate as Crone Goddess is one which would have been completely alien to the people of ancient Greece. The only possible explanation for the continued association today is that somehow the darker, scarier aspects of Hekate has been equated to wisdom in old age, which is, when you think about it rather ludicrous." -- Sorita D'Este.

            WOW what a site. I've seen some of those braids done and with my long hair, I want something different to do with it.

            The Goddess rises again
            Softly the sprirt comes
            And the phoenix is born
            Upon firey wings she flies
            In the cycle of birth and death

                  I can only do the dutch braid on myself, not the french... for some reason its way easier...
                  but reverse on others, the french braid is easier on a friend...

                  just something to think about...
