The first thing I wanted to do once I got to Lagos was to get my hair braided. Not only is it cheap (cost me £12), but we have some of the world's best braiders right here in Lagos. I of course chose my fave protective style -- BOX BRAIDS!!!!! Believe me when I say these are the best braids I've ever done. They are easy to manage, style and don't put too much stress on my natural hair - I oil my roots, edges and nape with castor oil. I'm leaving them for another 2 weeks then will let my natural hair breathe for a while...not sure what to do next....ideas ideas ideas!!
