Crochet Braids: Install #5 ~ Long & Straight Kanekalon Hair

Long Crochet Braids

 “Since I made the decision to install a set of crochet braids using kanekalon hair (you know, the cheap synthetic braiding hair that costs around £1.99 per pack!) I have, for the past week, toyed with leaving some hair out for this install”.

I love the look of this particular style when hair is left out, but I really can’t be dealing with having to baby just a small section of my hair as I will just get paranoid about it and the blending and worry about breakage will just take away from the enjoyment of the style.  The first time I installed straight hair it was really difficult to keep my own hair moisturised, especially because synthetic hair leeches moisture from your hair. It was also difficult to keep my hair blended in well with the extension hair at however many weeks post I was at the time, whilst keeping any products and oils off the extension hair as it gets really shiny if products are introduced. I actually ended up adding a couple of cornrows at the front after a week so I could just hide my hair.

This time around, I opted for a braid pattern which could hide all my hair but leave only a small parting as last time the boyfriend affectionately nicknamed my parting ‘Moses’!

These are the steps I followed:

Totally Time To Take Out The Twists!

"As planned, I took out some of my twists yesterday.....gotta get the ball rolling early when it comes to the kinky twist-take-down."

I started with just a couple of lines at the back so I could still look decent enough for work today.  The real task of taking these out starts tomorrow evening.....

I snapped a few pictures this morning to show you.

Should I Lye.....?

During my last relaxer I used up the last of my Affirm Fiber Guard Lye Relaxer. I now have a dilemma on my hands….. 


My HAIR on My Mind

Wow…..I haven’t blogged about my hair in ages!!!!  Since I have had these twists in I’ve barely given my hair a second thought (I don't even know how many weeks post I am!) and chose to concentrate on my nails.....

Over the past week I have been obsessing setting about a plan to take these kinky twists down this week.
