I love weave. Yes, I do! That statement shouldn’t be a surprise to those that follow me on social media. I have hardly no pictures of me wearing my natural locks. The main reason is because I decided to go natural about a year and a half ago after a horrible over processed perm incident. My hair was so thin and damaged I began to transition by growing my hair out without a perm. The two different textures were killing me so I finally cut all my permed hair off June 2013. My husband came in the bathroom and stood in shock. I had about an inch or two of natural hair coiled on the top of my head. I was scared at that point because I couldn’t put my hair in a quick pony or get some of the latest styles out so of course Youtube was my best friend. I begin looking for styles that I could do while growing my natural hair out. I wore sew ins and quick weaves until my hair was long enough for braids and then once I reached braiding length I knew I would be okay in this journey because braids are EVERYTHING!

Fast forward to the present. My natural hair is growing I can put my hair in a pony tail, I can get a sew in, braids, etc. My current obsession has been Box Braids. They are cute, affordable, easy to maintain, and did I say cute already? I have a Chicagoland hair braider that comes to me and does all the latest braid styles. Since I am ‘tender headed’ I dread the process of braids, but love the aftermath.

With me being on a healthy hair journey taking care of my braids as well as my natural hair underneath is very important. I don’t want my protective style to become harmful. I moisturize my hair and tend to my edges every other day because I want to ensure growth. Below is a video on how I take care of my Box braids.

Where do I go in Chicago to get box braids done?

I also might want to get weave, too, so I don't know if that counts into pricing. I'm very new at anything dealing with braids or weaves.
Anyways, I wouldn't go to a really sketchy area, but just decent enough to go during the day.
