So, i went and got the Brazilian wool hair which to my surprise, is not made of Brazilian hair but 100% acrylic yarn. Not sure where it’s made but my gut tells me it’s from China. And me being a DIY kind of a person who wants to try things out almost every time, I availed myself to the opportunity. I have never done faux locks before. The closest I got was some African threading that looked like faux locks especially after washing them. But the intended look was mini African threading. I recorded some footage for that as well. Check it out here.
I love these locks like wow! I have never been in love with a hairstyle like this. I might just have permanent locks done. I’m joking. I could never have permanent locks with the way I like changing my hairstyles time and again. Sometimes I feel like there is not enough months in a year to do all the beautiful styles I love. N’ways, I’m enjoying these while they last.
For these, I used 5 packs of Brazilian wool hair and I got the pack of 12 for R150 which is affordable if you ask me. I also used Nashe Organics Shea-Argan Leave in conditioner to moisturise my hair and the Umera Whipped Shea butter to seal moisture. It took me 10 hours to complete the style and that’s too much for me but I am so loving the locks it was all worth it. I braided my hair with the wool for about 5 centimeters and then started wrapping from the base of the braid. Why am I telling you all this? It’s all in the video so go ahead and watch it.
