And if you guys have not already heard, you need to be aware that we have a new kids blog. It is called Uniland and you can find it by clicking the little button right up here. It’s great, all mother approved content. It even teaches kids things like counting, some really great learning experiences, but it is super fun and you can definitely see Paisley and Daxton and all of our family over in some of the posts over there. So, go check it out and comment to Uniland. Let’s get on to the fab or fail. Okay guys, so once you have got your easy braider, your product itself, the first thing you do obviously is take it out of the package. Now, once it is out of the package, you have three little hook things like this, you have the hair braider itself, this all comes together. You do have to put in three AAA batteries, which are not included, just so you know. You get some little hair accessories including beads and elastics and a little bit of ribbon. And then this little hair separator. So, the first thing you have to do is get a small section of hair according to the directions. So I’m kind of guessing cuz they do not really clarify what a small section looks like but so let’s just, let’s do this. Just in case I’m taking too big a section. And then you are supposed to separate the hair using this into three equal parts by sliding it in like so. So that’s your separator. Then you clip this little plastic thing over the top and that holds it in place.
So, that works okay. Now, before I keep going, I just have to tell you that when we went to the store and we came back and we actually started filming this post, we got out our hair braider and unfortunately, we must have bought a dud because this is all it did. No movement, like if I force it with my hands, it is kinda sorta work like for a second but it is obviously not gonna braid so I actually had to stop filming, go back to the store and buy another one that looks like it is going to more successfully function as a hair braider. So, at this point, the instruction say to take our little hooks, these, and put them into the machine and I mean, just for sake of, I do not think there’s a specific way to do this, but just because blue on blue and purple on purple makes sense, we will do it that way and pink on white apparently. Now, these are the little hair grabbers, so you are supposed to take this up like this and hook the hair into the hair grabber. Essentially, you are doing kinda like almost like a crochet hook, it is just gonna kinda grab the hair. And then pull the end of said crochet hook or hair hook and it pulls it through the pipe, the little tube. Definitely glad I didn’t take any bigger sections. You can see that even as it is falling out of the hook, probably because I have too much in there. And, I’m gonna pull down and see that one because I had too much in there, it kinda pulled funny. I’m actually gonna pull it out, make less hair and start over on this process because this is getting a little complicated and messy. So this is not gonna work for big giant fluffy braids like on your whole head of hair, this is not gonna make two french braids. This is gonna barely make a little tiny accent braid. This time I’m gonna hook all three and then pull all three and see if that works a little better without getting messy, which it looks like nope, nope nope nope. Look at that, it is a mess and I have not even started yet.
Try again, let’s do it again (sigh) third time’s the charm. We got this, re-hook, try again. Okay, I think honestly, that’s as good as it is gonna get. It still is not like totally perfect at the top, but it is close. Now, her hair is longer, so they have these little extender tubes. If you have short hair, I’m assuming you just push them back up and you do not need them, but here comes the real key, right? Will it braid? Let’s find out. (machine whirring) I’m just sort of. oh, oh, oh, I should note, as it twists the hair, you can see that it is actually braiding the hair at the bottom too, which is gonna get stuck going through, so you kinda have to watch this and make sure that this does not inter-twangle while it is happening, If it is long hair like her’s is. If it is short hair, that wouldn’t be an issue. I’m just gonna kinda braid it braid it, braid it, till I see the ends popping through. And then, I’m going to elastic it. It did braid, okay, and you just are supposed to just release the separator and voila, you have an accent braid. Actually, it is not a bad braid, it actually looks half decent, so I have two questions, I want to test a couple theories. Number one is would it work if you do not use the separator? Because I feel like the separator was kind of a hassle. And number two, if I go slower, would it make the braid tighter as opposed to moving down it faster, making the braid looser. That’s what I was thinking. That’s what you were thinking too? Yeah So we are gonna test a couple different things and see how it works and how it turns out. So again, we are gonna start with a small piece of hair. So if I just kinda eyeball three pieces or even have Rylan hold, Rylan hold these for me since I’m using another human instead of the separator, if it would work. So, third piece, okay, so that definitely did work, saved me a bunch of time and I think it turned out a little smoother at the top, not using the separator, but you definitely need a second person. If you were doing it on yourself, the separator would come in handy. So, we are gonna do it slow and try to make it a tight braid.
Like I’m barely moving, oh, oh, oh, oh, I let it get twisted at the bottom. That’s alarming. It’s okay, I just got it twisted at the bottom, we are all good, have no fear. Okay, so, moving a little slower this time, this was braid number one and this was braid number two. Braid number two definitely did it way tighter. So, braid number two is definitely tighter. The only trick to doing it slow is that I was too busy watching the top to make sure it was going slow and I forgot to watch the bottom, and that’s when the hair got tangled. Okay, the goal this time is to just go down as fast as I can and see if it really does create a looser braid. So, I did it fast, but I do not like it at all. It kind of does not even look like a braid. I do not know. I do not know. (laugh) But I do not love that one, so do not do that one. Okay guys, so in conclusion, first of all, let’s just go over the facts. Yeah. The product is normally around , I found it on sale for. with no coupon. So, it is not like crazy expensive, but it is expensive enough that if it is not gonna work like the first one, major (trill), major thumbs down. So, first of all, not sure I would give it very high ratings for quality of product because it does feel like plastic and anyway. So, what do you think Rylan? It depends on the way you braid it, if you braid it slow, it can tangle your hair really fast for a good braid, it can tangle your hair if you are not watching the bottom. And if you braid it fast, then it is just not even a braid. I’m gonna say it did braid the hair, right? It didn’t just tangle it into a mess, it actually did create a braid and the braid actually looks half decent. However, I thought the hair separator was a little tricky to use and I still think no matter what we did, we have flyaway hair at the top. It does not want to lay flat right there. I mean if you are gonna use it for an actual hair tool, for sure a thumbs down, like fail, fail, fail, fail.
I wish it would use more hair, cuz. Yeah, yeah, it is not a very big braid even then, however, this is sold in the toy section of the stores and it is actually manufactured by a toy company so this is not supposed to be like a professional braiding tool, this is supposed to be a toy. Honestly, I just do not see people using this for real, like, to really braid their kid’s hair, I just do not see it. As a toy, maybe a little bit more, so I’m gonna go, fail as a hair tool, and a ehh as a toy. I’m gonna let Paisley play with it. I predict that it is either broken very shortly or her barbie’s hair is a nightmare very shortly. But she would have fun doing it and if it killed a couple hours or a couple weeks, which is why I’m giving it a ehh. I definitely think it should also be noted that for the amount of time it took us to just separate and set up the hair, it would have been a lot easier for me to have just whipped out a braid. Definitely if you do not know how to braid, use one of my beginning hair tutorials and you are golden. So there you have it folks, the easy braid, this is the easy braid is the brand and it is called the hair braider.
