Yarn braids can be kept in the hair for 5 to 8 weeks. If your hair and scalp starts to feel dirty, you can wash your hair to remove build-up. The braids become very heavy when wet, so lay your braids in the bathroom sink to wash them and wring them out thoroughly when you’re done. Alternatively, you can wash the roots and scalp only. If your hair starts to feels dry, hydrate it with a light conditioner or rose water in the mornings.
First, yarn braids are versatile. Unlike regular braiding hair, yarn comes in every color under the sun. If you want to try an unusual color for the summer, like neon green or bright pink, yarn is one of your best bets. It’s easier to find than brightly colored braiding hair, and it’s way cheaper and better for your hair than dying your natural hair. If you want to stick with natural browns and blacks, you can do that with yarn too.
The curls hold best on clean, slightly damp hair with a little bit of leave-in conditioner and you can sleep with the pipe cleaners in overnight or sit under an overhead dryer. The curls are really easy to do, but you should plan to spend a few hours working on your hair if you are curling individual locs, depending on the length of your hair. All of the styles below are tried and true fun easy looks that work with any kind of curls. I tried them on day one of my pipe cleaner curls and I plan to rock each look as my curls fall. Try them out and let me know what you think!
