Your curls are to die for. No need for a braid out for you. I'm trying to get into bunning, but it requires that I air dry my hair straight. Which always leaves my damaged hair a crispy mess. Braid outs mean I can braid it up damp and for some reason my ends don't turn into sandpaper. It's FAR from perfect though. With all that moisture, my new growth brings cotton fields to mind lol.
