  2. anamika says:

    yup very well explained Prerana..i am going to try it Smile

    • will you be able to do it Question Question Question
      coz i never could do it on me Frown i personally feel we can style other’s hair very easily coz we can “see” it, but since we can’t see our hair(at the back), so its difficult when we try out on ourselves……thats why i took model instead of doing the tutorial on my hair Razz

      • anamika says:

        i can do the french braid myself..needs little patience..what i do is i keep my back in front of the mirror and keep looking how it is turning out.

      • shrilata says:

        I agree with you prerna..I tried this many times but always run out of patience..its very difficult to do it on self Heh

  3. thanks prerana, but one quest: you said cover the hair while taking the next section, that would mix the new hair with the earlier section na? naking it thicker……
    just a lil confusion Razz Razz

    • anamika says:

      you are cconnuuffuusszzed on the very first day of the week Razz

    • oh Meenu, i’m so sorry, i couldn’t make u understand my points properly Big Frown
      well, in that step u will be taking “small” portion of hair strands from one side and join it in the center braiding process…so since the portion will be small, it won’t become thick Yes

  4. thanks prerana, i get it now…. was so looking forward to this french braid process Laugh Laugh

    anamika: m confused coz have to work today after two days rest and a winning india match Blush Blush Blush

  5. he always looked scary to me though ….. i never liked him…. plays only once in ablue moon and becoming humpty dumpty day by day…… i think what he does in practice session is Eat Eat Eat Eat Eat Eat

        • anamika says:

          i miss my place too though i keep going there..and what worse i miss my parents every single day Frown
          why we girls have to stay away from themFrown

          • afterall it is “men dominated” society na!! so that men can stay with their parents and his wife could do seva of his parents…they bring women away from her mom-dad….yahi hai kadvi sacchai..”Bitter truth” weep weep

            • anamika says:

              there r hardly women who r staying with there in laws ..every one is working nowadays.. i lived in noida and now in hyderabad i just don c any joint families is sad though.

              • True. The corporate industry is taking us to places all over the world. In fact both the parents are getting affected with no one to look after them when they are old.
                And even if the guy agrees for the girl’s parents to stay with them, the parents never agree to stay with the girl since they are not used to that sort of culture. Big Frown
