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. This current style was inspired by the amazing Falana, I went for box braids instead of twists this time around. 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.
Early this year I heard of Brazillian wool but didn’t pay any attention to it until a friend used it to braid her hair. It was very ‘different’ for sure. The texture is silkier, smoother and feels more like kanekalon hair than the regular wool, it mimics kinky hair when braided/twisted. I had to explain to quite a number of people that it wasn’t, only two people recognized it as Brazillian wool. Apparently, it has been in use in other countries but only recently in Nigeria. It can be used for hairstyles like twists, braids, faux locs, just about anything you would use regular braiding hair for.
