Wow! So this yarn/wool braid has been on the list for too long. Kept talking about how much I wanted to have them in and never got to but now I finally did.
Pleased? Hmmm, I have had them in for exactly one week and just writing on it maybe because I have been thinking on what to do, if to take them down or deal with it a little longer to get used to it. The hair is quite full and heavy, it was put in hot water after braiding to help ease up quicker. Yarn absorbs water and this added more weight, I have had it packed in a bun to reduce the weight for the whole week.lol
I get a lot of compliment: “oh wow your hair is so fine and i just wish they know what am going through”.
Well it’s one week now and the hair is a lot more relaxed and the water completely dried but it’s so full. I forgot to take a picture of the yarn I used to explain more on the weight but if you are in Nigeria you may know how it’s rolled here. I used the baby wool and the stylist used fifteen rolls of that. Oh boy was I sleeping? It’s long though but I can’t try using that much again maybe 8-10 rolls should go well. This is the second time I am ever having yarn and the first was about 6years ago or so.
My edges are okay, as much as I want to rock my yarn braid the main purpose is to protect my hair and not stress them so much.I dont know how long I am going to have them in for, time will decide that.
Here are some pictures of it.
Have you had yarn braids in, what do you think of it?
