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: Wigs

 

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.

Brazillian Wool Twists

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.

DIY: Crochet Wig

I apologize for being MIA these past weeks but I’ve been busy, and well lazy. I finally got off my lazy behind and made this crochet wig. Nobody tells you how much work it takes, I mean you would think it is pretty easy when you watch a 15-minute clip on YouTube but it takes a really long time and a good deal of patience. 

What You’ll Need

Marley hair (or any bulk hair of your choice really)

Latch hook or big bobby pins

Mannequin head

Wig nets

Bendy rollers

Hot water
