Who should choose hairstyles with Brazilian wool?
One of the main drawbacks of hairstyles with extensions is the weight the extensions add to the natural hair, the strain on the wearer’s scalp and damage to hair follicles, and headaches, which happen thereafter. Brazilian wool has n such side effects because it is very light. It causes no to very little strain on the scalp and hair of the wearer so even fine and fragile hair can easily bear the weight.
Besides that, Brazilian wool is a natural material. Unlike synthetic fibers that are often used as hair extensions, it’s utterly soft and causes no itching of the scalp and other parts of skin that touch it. Depending on the style, the wool can preserve your damaged hair from the impact of the environment and further ruination.
Finally, this wool is quite cheap compared to other hair extension options and if you take only one pack, which weighs about 200g, it will be enough to create about 70 braids. While the average number of braids is about 200, it’s a perfect economy, isn’t it! Some N500 will be enough to get you a lasting, creative and very lovely hairstyle. You can make them long and short, wear braids or twists. You can make crochet braids or Havana twists, or whatever else you want.
Now, let’s take a look at some interesting hairdos that can be created with the help of colored yarn and the ways you can style them for the most fashionable effect.
Some trendy Brazilian wool hairstyles
- Colored twists
Twists are one of the most popular hairstyles with yarn. They are done quicker than braids and create less tension on hair follicles. However, they last for a shorter while, only about a couple of months and then it’s necessary to redo them to return neatness. Still, this is a popular hairdo and many women choose twists when they decide to wear Brazilian yarn.
These twists are done in two colors – black and brown. The ones that are closer to the face are brown. They are lighter than black ones and compliment the skin tone in a lovely way. Since the twists are quite dark, they may require some illumination. Several shiny metal pieces will do the job perfectly. You’ll see how your eyes will shine due to these decorations. Also, add some bright earrings.
- Classic braids with colorful yarn
Quite often it happens that women add only one color to their natural hair. Why not to add some more colors? Pink, light blue, pale yellow or, instead, bright hues are a perfect idea for such braids. Many colors mixed into a mélange look great in long braids. Of course, it’s not a style for everyone but if the colorful style is for you, throw away all the doubts and rock the multi-colored braids.
- Simple black twists
These simple twists still look great. Having a great mane of voluminous and thick twists will make you look really chic. If you part them in the middle of your head, your face will look somewhat more round. In case you make a side parting, your face will look visually narrower.
- Blue & white
Want something refreshing in the middle of the heat? Here it is, a wonderful combination that looks like ocean waves and white foam together.
- Blue & gray
Just choose two hues of a bright color (for example, blue) and add some neutrality (like gray). You will receive a great combination and a very stylish effect. Such a mixture of colors looks equally good on a walk with friends and in an office environment. If you will want some bright accents, just fix metal decorations here and there. It will be a stunning effect!
- Oversized twists
These are called Jumbo twists and they are super big compared to regular ones. They are soft and voluminous and look great if they are short. Such a hairdo matches faces with prominent features best of all. If you have big bright eyes or plump lips, this is what you need from the point of view of the style.
