Braids Again!!!

Hmmm! This year seems to be in a hurry …I can’t believe we are already wrapping up the first week in March.

I would like to start this post by making reference to my previous post on braiding and fixing salon, and the innumerable emails I have received with respect to it. I’m glad a reasonable number of people benefitted from that post, but sadly the lady that braids there is no longer in Muscat, she is now based in Salalah (as at the last time we communicated).

Since she left, I resorted back to traveling to Dubai to make my hair (sad, I know) … I was just recently introduced to another lady that makes hair (but this time not in a salon), she has weaved my hair once and it was really nice.

Anyway when hubby suggested a getaway weekend in Dubai, I jumped at it because I was already considering making box braids. I like making braids in salons that have more than one braiding stylist (as found in most places including Dubai) because it takes lesser time when you have 4 or 5 people pulling your hair at the same time (Ouch! I can guess your imagination right now).

When listing the reasons I love visiting Dubai, hair braiding is definitely one of them …I made box braid yesterday. Although my scalp still hurts, I’m already loving it, and can’t wait to style it the way I want.

Despite the fact that braiding takes a longer time to make when compared to other hairstyles like weave, I still look forward to braiding my hair because;

  1. It is a protective hairstyle;

  2. It is easy to maintain;

  3. It can be rocked in different styles;
