Ever since I made the decision to return to the 'fro, I have never spent so much time thinking about my hair. As a former wash and go girl, I am absolutely mesmerised by the styling options available to transitioning hair. There's twist outs, bantu knots, weaves, half wigs, full wigs...it's just cray! My style of choice though has to be single braids or the more bohemian Senegalese twists. It's a style that's definitely catching on as I've not seen so many braids about town since my school days in Naija. Not a massive surprise as they are so practical, fun to experiment with and if done right, can get your hair GROWING!
What do you think? Will you be getting your braid on for AW12? For more braidspiration check out my fave hair blog http://iloveboxbraids.tumblr.com/
