African Hair Series 1: Hair on a Budget

hair series


Hello Everyone!
I hope you guys had an amazing weekend?
Mine was alright till I heard of the death of my best friends dad, I was shattered and sad I didn’t know what to say or do but at the end of the day I told myself God has a reason for everything.
My love, I know you will see this and I want you to know that I love you, I will always be here for you and it is going to be fine because God know best.I know this has nothing to do with the post but I had to let everyone know that life isn’t perfect and even bloggers do not have perfect lives and we go through things as well, Ignore the amazing pictures or perfect Instagram feed or whatever and Just be happy with own life because you never really know what people go through except they tell you.

Do not forget to Thank God for your life and family and always continue to pray for Everyone.

In my last post I talked about trying new things and one of these things was changing from the normal hair styles I usually make ( which is side part or center part weaves)  to something totally different from the norm. If you know me you will realise that I don’t even make braids, I am scared of hair pain as well as scared to look different and I just always want to look a certain way.
So I decided to start a hair series and over the next 3 months I’ll do a totally different hairstyle that is less than 5,000 Naira and 20 dollars for those outside Nigeria.
I have two reasons for wanting to do this series which are:
  • To be more open to trying new things for 3 months.
  • Get nice looking looking hair on a Budget.
For those in Nigeria you know the Economy is hard and letting your human hair rest for a while or taking a break from normal braids to try other styles, won’t be a bad idea plus maybe you have over used your weaves and there is no money to buy more.
Let’s do this together.
The hair I used is called afro funky and it is an expression product, I used one pack and didn’t even finish it. If you want it really full then you can get two packs but your hair will look so huge.
The weave was gotten for 1,500 Naira in Wuse Market here in Abuja and I found it on an American site for 8 dollars, you also need an attachment that you can get for 800 naira and for those outside Nigeria below 5 dollars for the weaving.
Whatever state or country you are in, you will definitely find it in the market or a beauty supply store.
 Ghana braids was fixed at the front and the hair stylist cut it in a box shape, then the hair was sewn halfway so it was basically sewing and weaving.
I was actually really scared to try this hairstyle but I told myself I could do it and I totally love my new look, I remember leaving the saloon and I got like a lot of compliments before I got home and  everyday people still tell me they love it.
I hope you guys love my hair and you are excited about this new series like moi!!

    Girl this hair is so flattering on you, change is good really. I'd actually like to try this but with a Mohawk style instead, By the way the lighting in this pictures has got you popping. Really looking forward to this series.
