New Protective Style - Crotchet braids

Happy Val's Day!!!

I woke up and felt like wearing a straight hair via flat iron. To do that, I used ORS replenishing conditioner to ensure that I strengthened the hair for the heat. I mixed that with Sheabeutimia moisturizing conditioner, covered with cap and went about my business. I washed it out during my bath and decided to air dry it. That was around 8:00am. Around 9:30am, I decided to apply heat protectant and blow dry on cool setting before straightening. Right after plugging in the blow dryer, the lights were off (courtesy of Electricity Company of Ghana a.k.a ECG)!! Here I was with partly dried hair, sitting in front of my mirror with a miserable face. However, I've conditioned myself not fret over situations so I went over to my neighbour stylist and asked her for ideas.

I opened youtube and we went through videos. We settled on using some extensions to create a halo braid after the one done with my own hair turned out very flat -damp hair! Just as she was fluffing the hair, I remembered my new styling tool - a latch hook (cost less than $2). Annette of Naturalistagh had done a weave with crotchet braid closure and inspired by this, I retrieved the hook from the house and opened a tutorial for the stylist to watch. Five minutes later, she started working on the cornrows.

After about 1 hour, she had perfected the art, creating a closure and within another hour, we were done!

We had wanted to curl it but since there wasn't light, she combed through it and I let it down. We used one and half pack Outre Kanekalon braid, colour 2.

We were both in love with the end and she, actually, brought another stylist to check out the style whilst I was at home thinking of how I was going to prepare my val's day special meal - that has been postponed for tomorrow.
I'll surely be trying out different styles with it so be sure to visit me on instagram or facebook.
If you want one, call her (Rose) on 0543016236

Have Fun!!!
