You all know that braids will forever be in vogue for me.
Since I’ve been back in Nigeria, I noticed that super long braids have become really popular but what really made me want to get mine done was after my mum did a hairstyle similar to this. I had no intention of braiding my hair just yet since I recently took out my Senegalese twists but my sister’s graduation was coming up and I was just hungry for braids as usual soooo this happened. Haha!
This style is most popularly know as a “ponytail” is actually called “chuku” in Nigeria.I did Ghana weaving with a side parting.
I used two and a half packs of Xpression extensions in my natural hair color (colour two).
For maintenance, I oil my scalp with Sulphur 8 or Damatol anti dandruff hair cream and clean with methylated spirit.
Duration: I would say 6-8 weeks if done properly.
I wanted something different as opposed to the single stranded braids I always do and I wanted to give my edges some rest (not that they were suffering or anything). I’m obsessed and I will be doing this style again. This is a great summer hairstyle! I definitely recommend it!
What do you think of the waist length braids trend? Are you feeling it or nah?
