Just a quick hair update. I’m wearing crochet braids again. This time, I used 2 packs of Noble Afro Kinky (or was it Afro Twist?) Braid. The hair cost me 750 naira a pack at Marian Market.
My ever helpful roommate F did my cornrows and I attached the hair myself, with the aid of a big bobby pin. It took me 3 episodes of Once Upon A Time,that is, about 2 hours to do my crochet braiding.
This is easily my fave hair style yet! It’s super protective, easy to do, looks lovely & is in perfect agreement with my inner #RastaMama. And rainy season is in full swing. It can get really cold & this is the only time of year I’m really happy about having big hair to warm my neck! One week down, three or four more to go.
I wrote about how to do this in an old post from February over here. In it, you can see the Jouelzy YouTube tutorial I followed.
Still, I’ll put up a picture tutorial soon. If you have any questions about how to achieve and maintain this style, feel free to ask!
