Braids

For the past 2 years I’ve been braiding my hair. I used to be a sew-in kinda girl, but that change. It was easy for me since I was so busy with work, then I moved to wigs, even made a fews for myself. Then I did a big chop and I loved it for awhile and in 2019 I got hooked on braids. And since then its been braids braids and more braids, am still learning on how to braid myself, I havent got the grip and the patient… yet.

Anyways, here are a few styles.

Kwenye mada yetu ya leo ya mishono ya vitenge, tunawaletea style ya jumpsuits. Unaweza kushona kwa kutumia kitenge cha aina moja na kuna wengine kutumia vitenge viwili tofauti. Ukitumia vitenge viwili tofauti hakikisha rangi au design zinaendana kidogo.

Kama una mishono ungependa tuweke kwenye blog yetu, usisite kututumia kupitia email au Facebook yetu.
