Protective Style: Brazilian Wool Braid With Loose Tips

I love Brazilian wool and it has easily replaced regular braiding hair for me. I tried Brazilian wool for the first time in 2015 and showed how I created three different hairstyles with it in this Brazilian Wool Twists post.

I originally wanted to do this with grey-colored Brazilian wool but I might be on clinical rotation soon and they are not fans of colored hair over here.

How To Make Your Own Crochet Extensions

After my experience with some not-so-excellent albeit expensive crochet extensions, I decided to seek for cheaper options but they all came within the same price range. I stumbled upon this method on Pinterest and decided to share, one good thing about this is if you do not have the time or patience to do it yourself, you can buy your extensions and give it to your local hair dresser to assist, although it might take a lot of explaining  but it’s still a cheaper alternative and you get to customize the size and color you want.

Twists

Crochet twists are fun, easy to do protective style that still give you access to properly take care of your hair. A protective style would help to protect your hair from harsh summer rays and pool chemicals but still ensure you pay attention to your natural hair underneath.

Unraveled Twist

Apply a bit of coconut oil to your palms and gently unravel each twist, the coconut oil helps to prevent the hair from frizzing. The unraveled twists make for a bigger and bolder look.

Half up, Half down

Take a section from the front part of the hair and secure it firmly with an elastic band. Loosen the secured section by lightly tugging at the underlying bit to conceal the elastic band.



Top Bun

Take the sectioned part from style 3 and roll it on itself, secure the end with a bobby pin or another elastic band.

DIY: Vixen Crochet

I’ve wanted to try vixen crochet braids for as long as I can remember, I finally got around to making up my mind to get it done and when I asked around, the average price to have it done at a salon is 9000 Naira. Currently, I don’t have that type of money lying around so I decided to crawl out of my lazy shell and do it myself; best decision I’ve made in a while. It is really easy to do and easier if you have a friend that can assist with the braid pattern.
