Grey Crochet Braids on Natural Hair

I've mentioned a few times that I was starting to get bored with my hair. The options I had were to color my hair, cut it, and maybe loc it. Well, I'm afraid of dyeing my hair, so for color, the next best things were to get a colored wig or braids, specifically crochet braids. I've been itching to get grey crochet twists for a few months now, and I decided to bite the bullet this week.

My whole family has been shaking their head, and my 4 year old nephew kept asking me why my hair was grey. But I like it [for now] and I wanted to show you guys :)

I used Color 44 Kinky Twist Hair from Femi Collection. Ideally, I would have preferred ombre grey hair, going from black to grey but that option was not available.

My cousin did the cornrows/weaving the day before - she reminds me of salon owners because she tried to use a small comb through my dry hair, and complained when I protested! Then my sister and I crocheted the hair on.

All I know is that I'm the X-Men's Storm's Nigerian cousin.

  4. Very daring look! I'm not sure I'm ready to take on full on grey. Perhaps a streak or two.

  5. Looks nice. I have thought of dyeing my hair too. And someone suggested henna. I guess I'd try a colored crochet hair sometime. But not grey though.
