Crochet Braids #7

"I installed my 7th set of crochet braids earlier this month at 5 weeks post relaxer.  I think this is my favourite install to date!!!"

I opted for braiding my hair with 12 braids going backwards and one horizontal braid at the nape. I didn't use any extension hair at the nape as for some reason my hands were not doing what my head was telling them to do.  My nape is now longer and stronger than  it was when I tried crochet braids for the first time last year, so I think it will be fine.

Henna Gloss Treatment @ 5 Weeks Post: 28.04.13

“I think after at least two years of henna treatments I have reached the holy grail of henna gloss mixtures for my hair and also found a rinsing process which works for me!”

­1 x 100g box of henna powder ­
2 x large tablespoons of amla powder
­1 x tablespoon of EVOO ­
2 x tablespoons of EVCO (melted into the EVOO)
­1 x mug of warm strong black tea (made with 2 x bags and steeped for 30mins+) ­
2 x teaspoons of honey (melted in the warm tea) ­
Coconut milk solids from a 400ml can (approx. 3 x heaped tablespoons) ­
1 x tablespoon of coconut milk water (from the same 400ml can)
1 x tabledpoon of AVJ

I'm really loving this combination! A long time ago I used to coat my hair in oil before applying the henna gloss. Nowadays there is no need as I add all the oil I need to counteract the drying effect of henna and amla, directly into the mixture.

Not only is it simple to make but it’s also 100% natural which has gotta be a good thing!!! Also, as I don’t particularly care for the smell of henna this mixture, without the addition of a store brought conditioner, doesn’t bother me half as much. I also think the addition of coconut milk solids really soften and almost straighten my new growth so it’s a win win!

These are the steps I followed:
