So on September 29th I decided to go retro and get some box braids. I haven't had any since I was in the 5th grade. The place where I got my braids done is at Brown Sugar Braiding Salon in Houston, TX on the Southside of town. Before going I did my research on the shop and the reviews I read were not good, but knowing myself I like to make my own assumptions and not take no one word for things. Upon my surprise 10 hours later and $220 worth, I receive great service and they were nothing like the woman said on the reviews. So here is my new look: 2 toned (top:4/30, back:4) Outre 100% Kankelon hair waist length ends dipped in hot water. I really wanted the braids so I could give my natural hair a break while its in transition.
