She couldn't help but shed a few tears as she was about to get her hair braided for the first time in a decade.

The hairstylist certainly knew her art because, true to her words, she braided the hair with hair extensions and attachments.

It was neat all-sided braids with a side parting. She applied oil to each of the lines on the braids and then used a hair treatment before cleaning it off, revealing gleaming hair. She indeed restored the woman's glow and youth.
