Has anyone managed to do a decent Lace braid on baby fine hair that is thin in the front? I really want to do this, but it may be hopeless.

I might not be right person to answer, as I don't have fine hair. I understand your plight, though. We all want to have the look of a thicker braid. I think this video might be helpful:

I know it's not a lace braid, but I liked the way the hairdresser skillfully pulled on the sides of the braids, making them look amazing. Why wouldn't you try to do something similar? I'm sure you could also achieve a thicker looking braid with this technique.







Hair type: 2b/M/C/iii
Current length: classic
Primary goal: thickening the ends

Routine:
- NW/SO on the scalp, with periodical length
washes (Alverde birke-salbei shampoo for the length)
- brushing, scritching, preening and massaging daily
- occasional S&D trims
- trimming the ends whenever they start looking funny
Hair type: 2b/M/C/iii
Current length: classic+
Current goal: knee

Current routine:
~ alternating a NW/SO (no water/sebum only) routine with occasional washes. I use the techniques of NW/SO (brushing, scritching and preening) almost daily, but I do a shampoo wash every month or two.

Products and tools:
~ Alverde Birke-Salbei shampoo
~ occasionally oiling the ends with either coconut or almond oil; currently experimenting with argan oil
~ an assortment of BBBs
~ Tangle Teezer/Tangle Angel & wide-tooth comb
~ hair friendly hair toys, for putting up hair and forgetting about it

That really does look great, but I can't imagine actually doing that on myself. It would take a lot of practice.

There's only one way to find out I imagine it takes practice, but you can always try. Who knows, perhaps you will get a hang of it quickly.
