Afri Naptural Definition Braid - The best feeling hair yet!!

Because of the business I'm in, I'm always on the look out for extensions that not just look as natural as possible but also FEEL great. During one of such hunts, I came upon this Afri Naptural Definition braid which is 100% Kanekalon, modacrylic fiber.

It states it's benefits as:
- Soft Human like texture
- Light weight
- Full of Volume
- Hot Water Set Styles
- Tangle Free
- Flame Retardant
- No Irritation
- Finger Friendly
- More Defined Braids
- Versatile

I got a few to test out and I was definitely impressed!! The hair is soft, DOES NOT TANGLE, and looks so much like a blow out on natural hair that I got so excited at the styling possibilities!!

Natural Hair Trends To Watch Out For In 2016

The Natural Hair Community is aflame with creativity!! The versatility of our texture makes it so easy to switch styles and give illusions of varying types of lengths. 2016 has started off with a BANG! and so many hot styles are being served and yes my beloved Crochet braids has gained some more staying power with an amazing array of extensions that are now on offer.

Having said that, these are some of the trends I see gaining ground in 2016.

1. Short Funky Cuts:

Last year I bumped into beauty blogger Barbara of Barbara1923 at the Beauty Africa exhibition  and I gasped in amazement - she had chopped off all her hair! Now I'd had the honor of styling her natural tresses a couple of years back so you can imagine my confusion when I saw her with really short hair. She laughed at me and said 'yea I cut it' I asked why and she said because she wanted
something different! She definitely pulls it off pretty well.

So this year when popular natural hair YouTuber Miss Kendrak debuted her short cut complete with an absolutely dope undercut, I knew this was something that will probably catch on this year.

Already I've had one of my customer's walk into the store with a shorter look and shaved sides so it's definitely catching on.

I know I don't have the balls for this especially because I look so much like my Dad that I'll probably end up looking like a guy! lolll

Some Of My Favourite Hairstyles From December And January!

I can't believe how quickly January has gone by!! Goodness me! Next thing you know, we'll be saying Happy Easter then it will be Merry Christmas again!! I'm more motivated than ever to pursue my goals with greater intensity!! Truly, time will pass regardless of whether you're utilizing it or not.

So! January went off to a great start and I just wanted to share a few of my favourite hair styles crafted in the salon , with you!

So first up is this lovely young lady I like to call my 'muse' loll. My hands and her hair get along so well. From time to time, she'll come to me and ask for 'one of my styles' and once my hand gets in her hair, it's so easy creating something we both love.

Her inspiration for this was this updo I'd done on Osemhena a while back.

So I modified it a little and these are the results!

Second up is this yummy mummy who came on the recommendation of her cousin. She doesn't live in Nigeria and she says she always has to sort her hair out herself as she can't seem to find natural hair salons where she resides. When her cousin spoke to her about KL's she decided she'd try it out.

Now her hair is long and thick and fluffy (that's the best word to describe how her hair felt honestly) I thoroughly enjoyed playing in her hair. Decided to give her a Jumbo Flat Twist updo so she could get both eye catching style and longevity. She left with happy smiles!
