Hi Ladies. I just had braids done. the harmattan has been fierce so I decided to do a protective style for my hair so i got braids done using black wool as my extension. It's cool and I love it.

Pick up braid I meant. So I can put weave on my head [not sure if I'm even saying it right.]

And pick up twist

Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by InkedNerd(f): 7:37am On Dec 16, 2010
Oh so are they braids or just weave [as in sew, glued, fused, etc.]?
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by Nobody: 7:47am On Dec 16, 2010
Nah, just braids weaved with weaves.
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by InkedNerd(f): 8:12am On Dec 16, 2010
Hmmm, this is the first I'm hearing of this. Interesting shocked. How is it done?
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by Nobody: 8:18am On Dec 16, 2010
lol Inked nerd. . . . its just a simple braid. You know, you use weave to braid hair to make it appear long. Like the previous pixs.
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by InkedNerd(f): 8:44am On Dec 16, 2010
lol I guess from the way you described it, I thought it was something else undecided
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by SAGoddess: 7:02am On Dec 20, 2010
Very nicely done Ejada, love it.

I have got two styles in mind for now, I guess I will decide when I get there what I want!

Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by SAGoddess: 7:29am On Jan 26, 2011
How are you ladies and your fros doing? Mine is growing nicely, I have thoughts of putting chemicals in it to soften it a bit at times but I remember why I went natural in the first place, I have been strong.

I plaited in Dec, will post pic once downloaded, pity I had to take the plaits out too soon because I could not wash my hair. . . . .I love the "give it a good wash daily" thing. . . . . . . . .
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by Ejadamen(f): 8:32pm On Jan 26, 2011
I am yet to see what my 'fro looks like. I still have my wool braids in. I wash the hair occasionally but I haven't been moisturising and sealing as I should. Ah well I'll know the state of my hair in 2 weeks. Happy new year everyone!
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by SAGoddess: 7:43am On Jan 27, 2011
Happy New Year Ejada cheesy

At least you can wash your braids, I had flat plaits that I could not wash and I was getting rather uncomfortable so I managed to keep them in for two weeks only. . . . .

I will get braids in winter (I think) if I am over the trauma I went through the last time when I eventually cut my hair. . . . .

Nerd where are you girl? Madlady?

Hi SA Goddess, hope your well.

So you had flat braids, i think that's what i call cainrow

I did cut mine but it did not suit me, it made my flaws more obvious, I ended micro braiding it in the end. It's easier and cheaper to maintain ,saves me money now that i am between jobs.
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by SAGoddess: 3:12pm On Jan 27, 2011
Hey Maddy, cheesy I am well girl, you good too?

I will post a pic as soon as I have it downloaded from my phone, didn't use the normal camera to take the pix. I think what I got is canerows but it was done in a funky style, will post as soon as I can.

Yeah, I agree you need something low maintenance if you are in between jobs,
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by madlady(f): 4:00pm On Jan 27, 2011
SA Goddess I'm ok, at least my Mum is still holding on, thanks to the Creator.

I will look in and see it. I hope @Inked Nerd comes in, she gave me so many really great money saving tips.

REAL HUMAN HAIR STRAIGHT FROM THE FACTORY

I'm an Asian and married to a Nigerian. I have a straight long hair which everyone likes it when I was there in Naija, and that gives me an idea to enter in this kind of business in Nigeria. I'm in Asia right now and I know some real human hair factories here. Those factories are manufacturing for European wholesalers and retailers (those ones you can see in the websites). Their factories are in Asia because of low cost of labor but the materials are from Europe. And of course they have a high standard quality, because European market will not accept the product if it will not pass their quality control. However, I will send a sample to my in-law in Lagos (Alaba Market) and in Enugu Town this coming week. I will send a processed hair (I mean those are ready to wear). I will also send a raw hair (virgin hair that not yet processed no chemicals yet). Those hairs can be tied up, dye, wash and trim. You can also use hair styling tools to straighten it or curl it, according to the style that you want (just like what we Asians do, with our natural hair).

This is not China made, because I discover according to my research that some of them are selling only synthetic hair that looks like real. Well, they cannot cheat me because I have a real natural hair. Another thing, most of their hairs are from Asian people, mostly Indians and Filipinos. Because Indian women have long black curly hair, usually their hairs are virgin, not all puts colors in their hair because of their religion. They also use Filipino hair, because the European and Filipinos have the same type of hair. And black hair is hard to find to European women, that's why they are using Filipino hair. Since I’m an Asian, I can travel to some Asian countries with free visa to check some human hair wig factories.

If you are interested to see the samples, you may give me your contact number and I will ask my in-law to give you a call once the samples are in Nigeria already. Or you can email me at jho_naciz@yahoo.com. Thank you.
