I normally make didi, ”one lady replies, Most of these hair styles are either named after what the style looks like or a person, some of which are Bob-Marley Braids, Ghana weaving, box braids, police catch thief etc.
We further asked how their first Brazilian weave felt … read their response:
“I felt so cool,”
“I went everywhere so people could see my new hair,” laughs one lady
