Femi Collection 100% Kanekalon Hair Senegalese Twist Braids | Wash Day

           If hair care is a multi-billion dollar business in Africa, then it is definitely a few hundred-dollar deficit in my house. I swear am almost certain that I spend more money on hair extensions than I do on clothes and wine combined. The reason is just because extensions keep my hair protected longer. And because of my work, I don't have time to be touching my hair everyday. A little moisturizing by spraying the hair with my mist  is all I get to do these days. So on Tuesday, I went to the store and got me a few packages of this Femi Collection 100% Kanekalon Hair. The length really caught my attention. The price was rather low ($8.99 each), but the quality was softer than I am used to. So, instead of giving you a boring report on my wash day, I will share with you how I installed these twists.

    The Wash Day Experience
  1.  I co-washed the hair the night before, moisturized it,  and sealed it. 
  2. Since my natural hair was still soft the next morning, I sectioned it in two from the crown. I also cut the extensions in two. 80 inches were way too long for me.
  3. I started from the back to the front. I decided to go with medium twists in the back and the front. I started out by braiding the part first, then twisted the hair  when I got to about an inch.
  4. when I got closer to the crown, I did cornrows instead of braids because my fingers were getting tired. I started doing braids and twists again when I got closer to the front.
Hair of the week


             These are my results! I think this hair will be perfect for crochet braids. It is less kinky than the regular Marley hair. Another important aspect about it is that the curl patterns does not change as quickly as the Marley hair. But no matter how you flip it, it is still synthetic hair. The shine will not go away. And synthetic hair can be very unforgiving. It is hard to get moisture to your own hair when using synthetic hair. I hope to use it again to create different hairstyles with my hair. Have you purchased any clips, wigs, or weaves lately?

  10. Your hair looks so good! You did a great job. I could have never pulled that off on my own head! Awesome low maintenance style!
