Hi Guys!!!

Been a minute or two yea? Well, I got robbed a few days ago at ‘knife point’. Everything I had on me was taken, phones et al. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, some more personal stuff followed and i’ve been sulking ever since.

Even though I feel like dementors have sucked out the happiness in me, I’m trying to stay positive.

On to todays post. I made up my mind to install the crochet braids myself when I called my stylist and she charged me N6,500. Say what now. I got so annoyed, I took to youtube and watched enough videos. By the time I was done, I was feeling like a pro. I got the necessary things needed for my crochet braids and set to work on Saturday.

My first ever DIY.


  • Expression attachment.
  • Coconut oil for my scalp and to oil the attachment.
  • Denman Brush.
  • Crochet Hook – Got it for N1,000 from a shop at Ikeja under bridge.
  • Scissors.


DIY3Braid Pattern.

From watching videos on youtube, I learnt that the braid pattern is important. I wanted a pattern that would allow different partings when packing my hair so I opted for this.

I started my hair on Saturday at 1:20pm and by 2pm this is what I had achieved.


 I finally finished crocheting my hair on Sunday at about 11am. By 2pm, I had curled it.

Sad part is, the expression attachement I bought was fake. Arrrrgh!!

I’m sorry I don’t have more pictures to show you all how awesome my hair looks. Blame it on those naughty thieves. But I’m mighty proud of myself on my first DIY.

With all that has happened, I kind of lost track of the dates. My sis only just reminded me that tomorrow is Christmas day. Merry Christmas loves.
