Got My Braiding Hair Ready

Rambling Post
In July, I will be self-installing single braids. I typically purchase Sassy Kanekalon braiding hair from Sally's for about $2.00 a pack, but decided to switch brands after watching Laila-Jeans video about her Senegalese Twists. I really liked the texture of the hair(Xpressions) and it seemed like a better quality than Sassy.




So, when I was back at my parents, I decided to visit a local Black(not Asian) owned beauty supply store. I haven't supported a Black owned beauty supply store in so long and they are one of the few in my home-town.
Anyway..tell me why one pack of the X-Pression Kanekalon braiding hair cost $7.50. I ended up buying 2 packs because that's how many I usually use in my hair...but dang. It looked like there was much more hair in these packs compared to the Sassy, but I really hope there is a different look to my braids when I use them!

  2. I'm with you. I've never paid more than $2.00 for a pack of Kanekalon braid hair. It sounds like it will be high quality hair though. I hope you like it better. Look forward to your braids. I love when you braid/ twist your hair. I guess mainly because I wish I could braid my own.

  3. I just bought my hair today and I only paid $4 per pack. Since I plan on pitting in micros or small individuals I got a few packs but I'm sure I'll have plenty left over

    1. I had a feeling the hair at that BSS was overpriced. I won't be revisiting. Thanks for the comment.

    2. Don't get discouraged about the hair it's really good, but you shouldn't buy it from that store again, you can get it online for cheaper than that.

    3. Thank you! It looks like some good quality hair, so worst case scenario I will purchase online as you suggested.
