Happy New Year!
You’ve probably said and heard this a million times already but you haven’t heard it from me (except you follow me on Instagram of course). I wrote down a list of things I would like to achieve before the end of the year, some are looking quite over-the-top but I’m really working to push myself this year and I hope you are too!

While going through my pictures and editing my last post for 2016 (which I’ll put out on the 31st, cliche?), I noticed I had worn over 10 protective styles this year alone and decided to showcase my favorites this year, you can also tell me yours in the comment section, I’ll really like to know. In no particular order, they are;

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.

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.
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.
Take the sectioned part from style 3 and roll it on itself, secure the end with a bobby pin or another elastic band.
Throw on your favorite accessory to complement your look; a headband, headchain, flower crown, the options are endless.
In all, don’t forget to pay attention to your natural hair, ensure you wash, moisturize and seal regularly. Don’t leave a protective style in for too long and best of all, soak in the warm sun rays and have fun!

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.

One of my resolutions for this year is to try more protective styles and my go-to is wigs. They’re perfect for protective styling and still give you access to your hair to wash, deep condition and have all the necessary treatments on weekends or at your free time. If you’re are a beginner at wig making, you might want to try making wigs using the flip over method or bonding glue to help with the closure. There is a video at the end of this post to guide you. When you feel more confident, you can try using the lace closure.
