Today, I’m bringing to you this DIY crochet braids Hairstyle, using Naomi Boom by Xpression.
After much searching here in Naija, I finally found ready-made Senegalese twist crochet braids. Some call it mambo twist or Havana twist…whatever the case, it’s a twisted braid. Why this post is fascinating for me is the fact that the product is totally made-in-Nigeria or from a Nigerian hair brand. I’m so proud of X-pression for producing this. Obviously, the crotchet braids hairstyle is a fast-growing trend for Nigerian ladies. I’m glad hair stylists, beauty companies and the ladies generally are looking beyond our shores to find other interesting fashion trends.
I used three packs for my hair…it’s quite light (after I submerged them in hot water), but the texture didn’t change at all. Ella said she bought has N600 per pack…I guess since it is on-demand now, it has become more costly. I bought mine N1200 (should be more than that by now in 2021) per pack, I couldn’t install it myself since I was quite busy this period, so I got my stylist to do it for me. I will advise that you make your cornrows/weaving bold, considering the braids are jumbo size, to avoid them pulling your hair from the roots.
In recent years, I noticed it disappeared from the market, I don’t know why, but I enjoyed wearing it.
