Protective Styling - Yarn Braids

I quickly grew tired of styling my hair in twist outs daily and decided to give yarn braids a try.

My thoughts? : Love em!
I'll elaborate on my experiences with them when I take my hair out in hopefully 2 months.

They seem to take longer than traditional braids, took me 12 hours from start to finish and I have 239 braids.

Again, these pics where taken on my phone!! I tried my best to capture what the hair and style look like.

close up for ya'll
pretty voluminous

I haven't counted how many braids I put in, but I imagine well over 100 (I counted and I have 239 braids).
If there's anything I'd do over again, that would be to make them longer!! But next time around =D


  1. I want to start locs this year. Can you recommend a loctitian? I'm thinking the East Bay will have the best loctitians.

  2. @amija Hi hun. Unfortunately, I don't know any locticians =-( I did mine myself. Good luck on your search!

  3. they look amazing on you ,the look like real locks ,its amazing what can be done with hair nowadays
