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.
I purchased half a dozen rolls of Brazilian wool for 750 Naira ($2) and paid the hair stylists 2000 Naira ($6) for home service, I spent a total of 2750 Naira ($8) to get this style done. This is the least amount I have ever paid to get braids done, I almost did not believe it until they were done and I handed over the cash. Shout out to my roommate T for the hookup. If you would like to have something similar done for you, you can contact Madam B on +2347019812532 , price would vary depending on your location, length and amount of extensions you would need.
Duration: 5 hours.
Reaction: I just felt like I should add this because I’ve been getting compliments here and there but also the occasional weird stares and questions that lean towards “why didn’t you allow them finish braiding your hair?”
I plan on having this style for at least 3 weeks, by the end of week 2, I’ll put out a post with details on how to care for both natural hair and Brazilian wool in a protective style.
