You know how you spend some good money on buying braiding hair/attachment/extensions and on paying the hair stylist to make it for you? Then you spend a good amount of time sitting down to get the hair braided and by the time you’re done, you can barely feel your butt? Then 4 weeks down the line the hair starts looking old in your eyes and you’re tired of it?
Girrrrl, been there, done that!
I’m going to share with you 3 easy ways to revamp your braids/twists and give them a new look so you can enjoy every single kobo you spent!
1. Curl it.
You can decide to curl the entire thing or just the ends.
You can use bantu knots, flexi rods aka bendy rollers, big braided sections etc and then dip them in hot water and voila!
2. Twist/Braid out.
Loosen the braids or twists just enough to ensure they don’t fall off and you’ve got a whole new style!
This resurrected hairstyle of back in the day seems to be everyone and their grandma’s new favourite style so rest assured that you will be right on trend.
I hope I have convinced you (and not confused you) to give those braids/twists another chance! Don’t take them out just yet!
What’s your favourite way to change up your braids/twists? Do you use any method I didn’t mention? Please share!

I love all these options! Especially the twist out one
I did that bob hair but it was so poorly done that even my aunt was shading me that I looked like I had a mop on my head. *no love*
Lmao! Your aunt though. Sounds like something my mum would say.
Been seeing the bob a lot though, noting it for later..

Yay! Thank you Oyime! 😀
Your cousin is so pretty! I like the twist out best, I’ve still not gotten over my experience with the bob look.
Thank you! 😀
Aww, what was your experience?
You just gave me a style idea.. The chunky bob twists 😀
Yay! Please post about it if you do it.
Love the makeup, What brand of hair did you use for your twists? How much was it and where did you get it from?
I’m so sorry for the late response.
I used Noble Gold and I got it for 800 Naira at Ipodo market (opposite Computer Village, Ikeja) but it’s pretty common so you can find it elsewhere
