Most of my crochet braids has been with cornrows so when I found out about the Jazz Nicole Method, I decided to give it a try.
I used 4 packs of hair at $5.99 a pack. There were 20 twists in each pack. The ends were very secure and I didn't have to worry about it unraveling.
I started out by twisting my own hair and oiling my scalp along the way. Then installing the twist into my hair one by one. It was a tedious process but the results was worth it.
-Hair in pack is already twisted
-Has touch and feel of natural hair
-Less tension on edges (my main reason for doing this)
CONS: The process took longer to do. But the pros outweighs the cons for me. All I had to do was get up and go. I think this would be perfect for someone who doesn't know how to cornrow. I know how to cornrow but it doesn't always come out the way I want, and the style ends up being a little bulky.
Overall, I liked... No I loved the results and I would definitely do it again. I can style it several different ways. The twist are neatly done and didn't irritate me. This style definitely gave me the hand in hair syndrome. Going to do box braids and faux locs later. Check out my minimalist natural hair routine and the videos below for ideas.
