I couldn’t wait!! I was going to put this post up later but I couldn’t sit still and keep you all in the dark about this MAJOR dupe for Havana twists I got. I’ve been wanting to get crochet braids Havana twists since as long as Instagram bloggers made it look cool lol but it’s really scarce here in Nigeria and when you finally find it, it costs quite a lot considering you have to use between 3-5 packs to get the desired volume you want. Over the weekend, I got grey box braids (crochet of course) done but sadly I got complains from my Ogas at the top at work about how unprofessional it was or whatever by the way, I’m just a Corper oh. Anyhooo, I innocently went to the market to get black Brazilian wool to recreate the same style and I had actually already paid for the rolls I got and was about leaving the shop when I saw it!! I saw this already twisted kinky looking hair just waiting for me to crochet it to my beautiful head. I quickly gave back the wools in exchange for them and I’m really happy I did. It was so cheap that I thought I was dreaming. Please keep reading to get the juicy details on this look!
First things first, the name of the hair extension is Naomi Boom. That’s all I know about the name. Haven’t seen this product in the market before. It comes already twisted and its 26 pieces in a pack, 13 per each bundle. I got 3 packs because I wanted it to be full. A pack cost me 600 Naira only. Infact I priced it down from the N650 the salesman called it cos well I was in the market lol. Simple as ABC. So when I got home, I took out the grey braids and made a few tweaks in my corn rows then installed them and my darling darling friend Keji assisted me. As usual the installation took all of 30-45 minutes. This isn’t a tutorial post cos I already have two of those here and here on the blog so the same rules basically apply.. I made the hair in both center and side parts. I styled it in side part in these pictures but I can always switch it up. I’ve gotten tons of compliments on the hair and I actually have a few clients lined up who want to get this same style done. Since I just got the hair installed, I can’t say anything about how long it will last but I’m willing to keep it in for about 3 weeks to a month. I’ll perform scalp massages as often as I can and of course keep my hair underneath moisturized as much as I can..
So for the ladies that have been dreaming or planning on getting this style done but haven’t yet because of the pricing, Naturalgirlonabudget has come to the rescue lol. It’s all about budget beauty.. Pretty please follow this page (budgetbeautyhair) on Instagram.
As usual, I hope this was helpful.
