Happy Friday people.Am here again with yet another crochet braid install, I just love crochet braids and how versatile it is(my opinion). It’s also a very easy protective style that you can make yourself .
I know the economy right now is hard but you can still slay on a budget,its all about being creative with what you can afford.
I used one pack of darling super star in the color purple. I cut the hair into four (4) equal parts and feathered the tip. For a fuller or longer look you’ll need more than one pack of braiding hair.I bought the hair seven hundred naira (700).
My braid pattern wasn’t really it, the cornrow that I made for the parting was a bit too small, it made it impossible to get my Latch hook through, I had to use a small sized Bobby pin.
I used a bit of black at the back but I didn’t like how it looked so I just continued with the purple for the rest of the install.Because I cut the hair in equal parts I didn’t fold the front to be even so as to get it reasonably long(not as long as the back part though). This hair felt like it took forever to complete, I started Friday night and finished what was left on Saturday morning.
Now the interesting part, I used a flat iron on low heat to straighten the hair. I alternate between 150 – 170 degrees,if the flat iron is too hot it will melt the hair because it’s synthetic.
I wore it straight for a few days and curled it using my flat iron and flexirods.
In the past I would use hot water,we learn everyday and I realised it’s easier to use a flat iron. I ran the flat iron through the hair in sections and rolled it up on the flexirod while the hair was still hot before moving to the next section.
I really love the texture of the darling super star, its so soft and beautiful every one thought it was a weavon and I haven’t experienced any tangles so far.
Would you try or have you used the darling attachment before? What other brand have you tried and loved?
