Fulani Inspired Braids

At times a slight change helps settle the turmoil.

Hello!

First off, I’d love to thank each and every one of you who voted for me, we didn’t win, but I’m thankful and proud that I got nominated. Next step, is to keep working hard and putting a smile on someone’s face. 🙂

Secondly, I have honestly come to the stage with my hair where I’m bored with her and before I do something drastic, that I may or may not regret, I have decided to do a few protective styles.

For starters, I decided to do the lines and box braids. I’m pretty sure most of us remember having this style growing up and during the holidays, we would march to the salon and ask for “Half lines, Half rastas” Oh, the good old days 😀

I used three packets of Darling’s Elegant Braid in Number 1/350, a few rubber bands for the box braids and plenty of beads just to style up the do.
You can get all these supplies from any beauty store.

I’m excited and a bit relaxed that I don’t have to bother with my hair at all, plus, it doesn’t hurt that the hair is light and I see myself having the style in for another two week or three, who knows? 🙂

Here is a quick video on how I was able to achieve this look.

Are you currently protective styling? Are you and your hair on good terms?
Let me know.

Love,
Jo♥
