Braids have been a constistent feature here on Kurly Kichana, we love box braids! Evidence, here, here, here and here. It is defo our go-to protective style and since I am working out more often and need an easy to maintain style I was more than happy to wake up at 7am to go to Kenyatta Market to get braids.
To prep my hair, I prepooed with coconut oil for 40 mins, then shampooed with Tressemme Naturals shampoo and then deep conditioned. As I could not be bothered to dash to the CBD to buy deep conditioner, I mixed some Hellmans Mayonnaise, Honey and Lavender essential oil and slapped it on my hair for 45mins.
After the deep conditioning, I rinsed my hair thoroughly and then used Suave Aloe+ Ginseng conditioner as my leave in and sealed with jojoba oil. I then stretched my hair in two pig tails as below. If you are on instagram then you already know all of this :-)
Oops, bra strap showing!
Right after I got back from the market, this size is great coz my scalp was not tender at all.
Slightly feeling myself!
