Hair, Color, And Packs


My sister wants to do long and wavy hair. From the local beauty supply store, we decided to get:
Brand: Sensationnel
Type: French Wave
Color: 2 and 30
Price: $5.99/pack (purchased 5 packs)


Prepping The Hair

It is very important to prep your hair for long-term styling effectively and the correct way. I started by sectioning her hair in 2 sections (bottom and top). I braided the top in order to have a natural side part. The top braids were much smaller than the ones in the back so the part would look natural. Then I braided her hair down to finish the braiding pattern.

Crochet Braids Process:

The hair is very soft, fine, and easy to split. I split the extensions in thins strands to help with the knotting/securing process. I took my closed latch-hook and maneuver it under the cornrow, opened the latch then put the selected hair in the hook in a "bunny loop" way, then closed the latch hook.

After I feel the hair is secure in the latch-hook, I pulled my tool in reverse back under the cornrow until the "bunny loop" came through.

I opened the latch-hook and set it down. Then I took the loose strands and pulled them through the "bunny loop." For a secure installation, I looped each strand 3 times (rubber bank method) and reinforced it until secure.
