Blacks' hair is a unique type of hair. They are very lucky as there are so many different hair styles and they can change from short hair to long hair whenever they want. No hair styles have a specific meaning. Braiding hair in different ways is a fashion trend. Many braid their hair to their personality or to their qualities. Many braid over their hair to grow their hair, they get tired of brushing their own hair and the fashion trend moves fast.
These are locks that look like dreads, but instead of using your own hair you use wool. This can take up to 20 hours if you want thin ones. If you want thick ones it can take plus/minus 6 hours. Also your natural hair can not be too short when having this done.
This is the average length and took 12 hours to put in.
This is done using horsehair. You braid the horsehair into your own hair. This can take many hours or even days, depending on the type of braids you are getting done, long or short, thick or thin. The person that does braids may also be intermediate or very advanced, depending on how much practice she has had.
When you get a pony tail you do not burn the ends of the braids, but when you get it very short you have to burn the ends as you do not want them to undo themselves.
These braids are very long and thin, and took 4 days to put in.
For dreads you use your own hair. To make them in the beginning you use sunlight soap. You wipe it on to a cloth, then brush the cloth over your hair in circles.
These dreads have been in for about 1 1/2 months.
You can use a cream that you buy from the shops or have it done at the salon. This makes your hair dead straight and stays like this for a long time. This takes up to 30 minutes to work.
