    I love THIS!! These styles can work for people with relaxed hair too! I’m sick and tired of weaves and braids, thanks to them I have no temple hair left! Who knows what the Naija equivalent for marley braids is? A sister needs it in her life like yesterday, can’t shout

      I think you can try kinky braids or get the Afro weapon and tell the hairdresser to cut it.

    Why are we allowing other to define our beauty for us, and African women wanted to be someone else they rejected their own self. Our women keep looking to the west in term of beauty spending thousand of naira or dollar on fake hair. Why we can embraced our own traditional way of life when it come to hair issued, however looking more like white for us in Africa that define how beautiful we are. Embracing our natural hair mean we are embracing ourselves and our beauty. We are blessed that we can do whatever style we want with our hair, why than our woman keep copying other.

    Oh damn, these styles are so amazing.. I would show my hair more love. I’m natural but always move from weave to weave to braids to weave because my hair is so coarse it scares me..
    (Lastly, I thought the lady looked a bit surprised during the video but I think its her brows.)

    This style just gave me an idea of the next style to do!
    I’ll do this style with yarn thread for the twisting.
