Now, you guys know ya gurl is watching her money so there was no way I was heading into the beauty shop to drop a nice $100 on this style (but if you can afford it, GO FOR IT!). Plus, I love being able to do my own hair! Trust me, it’s not hard at all.
I’m going to attempt to answer some of your questions – I hope these help!
- How long did it take?
- I started Friday evening after I got off from work – (shoutout to Summer Friday’s!). I took breaks, watched TV and otherwise didn’t stay focused, so all in all it took me about 8 hours. I ended up going to sleep and finishing it up Saturday. So yes, you can finish in a day!
- What hair did you use?
- I used 100% Kanekalon braiding hair.
- How much was it (the hair)?
- The hair was $1.99. Yes, that’s right – $1.99!!!!!! Just regular old braiding hair.
- How many bags of hair did you use?
- Okay, this may seem like a lot (because it IS) but I used 10 bags of hair!
- How did you do your twists?
- I started the hair in a twist, not a braid. Therefore my twists are fairly loose, meaning they MAY not last as long. I don’t mind though, because I’d rather not have tight braids on my head. I seperated two small pieces of hair, twisted them into the braiding hair and just twisted all the way down to the end. I dipped the ends in boiling water to “lock” the hair – sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t.
- I may put up a video tutorial at some point, if people are interested in the twisting style and not braiding.
- How long will they last?
- I’m not too sure, since I twisted them loosely. I’m hoping for 4 weeks (or longer), but we shall see! :)
I love them! I’ve gotten a billion and one compliments so far, and even some people asking me if I do them for other people. Haha.
Also, BIG BIG BIG SHOUTOUT to my roomie Jo for taking these pics! You’re AWESOME!!!
Let me know if you guys have more questions!
