What’s popping? Summer is here(abi it’s not summer eh? ) and this is usually the best time of the year for me(after Christmas of course). There isn’t much work during this period and I get to enjoy life! The past week I was indisposed and forced to stay at home for most of the week and I eventually used the plenty of time on my hands to make my hair into goddess locs. I’ve had this picture of Tyra Banks rocking goddess locs on my phone for a while and it has been speaking to me a lot.
I went to Mushin market in Lagos briefly. Seriously that’s where I get my extensions. Whenever I go there, I get to see extensions that aren’t available in retail at salons yet and the prices are cheaper. I bought 2 packs of a curly Xpression attachments called Xpression Harmonia for 600 naira per pack and 2 packs of Xpression Kinky hair at 850 naira per pack.
Each pack has 2 bundles of hair. One long for the front and one short for the back. I used the long bundles from each pack because I wanted the locs to be long so in a way I used one pack only for my hair.
How did I install?
I threaded my hair the night before to stretch it. Stretching the hair makes manipulation easier and painless. I parted my hair into the number of sections I wanted to make and I had a total of 45 sections.
I made twists with the curly extensions but I had one side of the extension longer up to where I wanted it to reach on my body. Then I wrapped the twists with the Xpression Kinky hair from the roots down to a considerable length, sealed with super glue (Alteco) and left the curly part at the end.
It took me 10 hours to install. Just imagine. Although at few times, I would stop to do other things like eat, rest, eat, rest etc (there wasn’t anything else to do) so I wasn’t tired when I finished.
It cost me 2300 naira in total to do this especially because I did it myself.
I can also make this for you if you are interested. Just send me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
