I know it has a bit since my last post, but I have been prepping my hair for Yarn Braids (similar to Individual/Box Braids, the only difference is instead of hair, yarn is used). So I have been getting my final Cayenne Pepper Treatments while my scalp is free.
This will be my first time wearing/installing them.
Today I have both a hard protein treatment, and moisturizing deep conditioner. (you should always follow hard protein treatments by a moisturizing deep conditioner, as you want the hair to have balance, and not tangle or break)
Now on to the yarn...
A Chair- To wrap yarn around base, to make sure yarn is cut evenly
Hair Shears- To cut yarn
Shea Butter- In case hair feels dry
Lighter- To burn ends of yarn to secure
Comb- To make parts
Those are all you need really. At least it is enough for me.
I purchased two spools of yarn from Wal-Mart. Red Heart brand for $2.33 and the lighter from my local supermarket for $1.49 USD. So overall, this style costs less than $6.00 bucks (without tax).
I have already moisturized and sealed my hair, I braided my hair into six plaits, to stretch my hair since I had to go out. It was not dry by the time I got home, so I blow dried my hair by each plait/section.
My hair blow dried.
I wrapped the yarn along the legs of my chair, to make sure to cut evenly, I say they are about 16 inch 'strands'.
Here's how it looks wrapped
Here's how it looks cut
I am starting to braid tonight, we'll see how long it takes to finish. Wish me luck!
