Hey I'm getting crochet braids soon and I was wondering if you have any tips on how to wash/care for it? I'm going to use kanekalon hair and leave it out like straight and unbraided, love the blog btw! :)

Thanks and sorry it took a while to answer this!

well, when I had my crochet braids, I washed my hair by loosely cornrowing the extension hair directly on top of my base cornrows so that I can get to my scalp and washed that way. Since I had straight crochet braids (using X-pressions hair) I had the extra steps of blow drying and then flat ironing to deal with (unless I wanted a braid-out look).

at night, I’d just pull it in a low pony and sleep with a satin bonnet. If you’re doing curly hair, you can pull it into a ponytail at the top of your head and put your bonnet on.

Hello I actually have two questions. 1. I just recently ordered hair clip ins. I'm not used to them and didn't want to go all out and not like them so I got synthetic just incase, so it wouldn't be too much money down the drain. Was that wise?

2. I wanted an extra piece at the bottom for a slight ombre effect. I ordered 1b hair. What ombre color set do you think will look good as an under layer?

Hi! To answer your first question, I think that was wise—just in case you end up not liking them, you’re not at too much of a loss.

About which hair color to choose, well like I always say, Black girls can rock any color we want, but if you’re going to be wearing them to school or work, you might want to go for something a little more subtle (for work) or coordinated with your school colors (ex: if there’s a dress code—you can kinda talk your way out of getting in trouble since you’re “showing school spirit” lol)

But joking aside, think about what’s in your fall/winter wardrobe, what your fav color pallet is and how often you plan on wearing the clip-ins so that way you can get maximum wear out of them. Base your color choice on that and you should be good.
