Crochet Braids- Protective styling

Hey all,
So I finally had crochet braids installed and I must say it is definitely going to be a staple protective style! I love them to death!
I used Nene bulk braid 22'' from Esaki Cosmetic Shop ground floor at Anniversary Towers in town. A packet is 1200/- so got 2 packets in no 4 and just used 1 and a 1/4 pkts.

Mary (my braiding lady) did 10 lines going back and then I installed the braids..I used this tutorial as my guideline
 My result:-

So I have been wanting to post more pics of the hair but my camera has decided to act up and the pics come out looking like I was on Instagram...smh

Anywho I applied my shea butter mix( Whipped shea butter with coconut, olive and castor oil) to my scalp and the hair I apply my Kids Organix shea moisturiser and detangling lotion and at night braid it and don a satin scarf..The hair is great as it doesn't tangle and get matted up but does shed but not to badly. I hope to keep the style in for at least a month so will keep my fingers crossed that it will keep.


  1. I love the look. I would like ti din that to my hair too. So I need to know where I can get Crochet braids in Kenya. Please respond ASAP.
