Fringe Benefits

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

Hey girlies,

This blog has taken an unfortunate turn and is not really focusing on what we are passionate about i.e. Hair. You must be wondering whats been happening!!Well my hair has been under a weave for all of 3 weeks and its been great just waking up, brushing my hair, tying it into ponytail then out the door.

Before the weave, I shampooed and deep conditioned my hair the day before. After deep conditioning I spritzed a lot of heat protectant on my hair so that my hair could suck it all in. I visited a Hair salon in Apic Centre Westlands and a lovely lady did my hair amidst a lot of chatting. She first blow-dried my hair till it was straight enough to cornrow, the blowdrying was the reason behind the heat protectant the night before. She cornrowed my hair to the back rather than in a concentric circle on my head, and she did actually listen when I told her to be gentle on my edges.

The weave hair I used was some Brazilian hair, not sure of the name now but I used a 10inch piece and an 8 inch piece in number 2 I think which is brown black. She then sewed on the weave on my head and this took about an hour. She then cut the fringe at the front, I did not want it too blunt and rather went for a razored end fringe.

I have been washing and deep conditioning my hair every week, then getting it flat ironed at the salon.

The pictures are below,(I am terribly sorry for how tired I look)




Happy Tuesday lovelies

Thaaaaaaankkksss. It turned out very close to what I wanted

Anyway hun...Cost Breakdown

Weave Hair - Kshs 3000 ( yeah I know I know, pretty damn expensive huh, but you can reuse the hair and its proper human hair and you can curl it, flat iron it etc) However you can get cheaper hair just go for the Sleek Hair Brand
Weaving -Ksh 2000 I only paid this because this lady is really good with hair and was really gentle on my scalp and edges and really listened when I had any complaints with no stank eye. Plus she is really good with cutting hair and she did a good job with the fringe
