Yarn braids are becoming increasingly popular among naturals. Not quite as defined as braid or twists extensions they look a lot like locs, exuding an earthy, stylish look. What are your thoughts, ladies? Would you rock them?

Yes, but I don’t want to take them down, lol.


I want some now. I want to figure out how to put them in.


I love that girl’s blog! My hair locks up after a few days in 2 strand twists so I’m paranoid that I’ll never be able to get the yarn out!

My hair doesn’t lock up, but I’m afraid of the same thing! They are gorgeous, I love the look. But, I feel like they would rob my hair of moisture, despite my best efforts to prevent it and that they would be a nightmare to remove, resulting in damage from the takedown. However, you girls who rock them look awesome!!
