The Style | Braids

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

It baffles me that my edges are still intact with my love for braids, this love affair has been going on since I was about 12 and has also been chronicled here, here, and here
Years later, I still get a thrill going to the hairdressers to get my braids done although now I have to look into doing my own braids or paying exorbitant amounts to get them done here in the UAE.


If any of you readers know of good salons in the UAE that can do braids...let me know in the comments. 

Enough rambling! I recently did a quiz on www.un-ruly.com that tells you the kind of naturalista you are. My results were not mind-blowing, I am definitely a Natural Hair Minimalist. I have found the products I love and work for me and have enough stock to keep me going for a while. I wanted to share the products that are keeping my braids smelling fresh and looking good 4 weeks in. 



Bu.Ke Shampoo Bar - A staple in any East African Natural Hair Enthusiast's statsh


My edges are thriving from using this as edge control, this is Pure Aloe Vera Gel and you can pick it up in most health food stores. 


I picked this Hask Monoi Coconut Oil Nourishing Conditioner up from my local Carrefour in Abu Dhabi. It has no Parabens or Sulphates and smells like a Fijian Dream. I have used it as a rinse out and leave in conditioner and so far so good.


 The full line-up. The Brown bottle on the extreme right is my DIY body and hair oil with Macadamia, Avocado, Coconut and Olive oil.    


My undercut is growing out and I am slowly learning to trim it myself with the Husband's beard trimmer

Happy Tuesday
Any must have braid products that you guys can recommend, would love to hear it in the comments.
