Protective Styling: Braids

Hey guys…  I know I’ve been lagging (no frequent posts and all),  but please bear with me. I got braids done earlier last month for my convocation and I took them out after four weeks.
I’m going to share with you guys how I took care of my hair while I had the braids on and what I did after taking them out. 
I paid about 3500 Naira for the braids.

Quite cheap yeah?

It was like waist length and I used colour 1.

The hair was full so I couldn’t really style it like that and Lagos is quite hot so just the regular ponytail mostly.
I mixed water and some oils (coconut,  olive and castor) in my spray bottle and if you are guessing I’m going to say I sprayed my hair ‘dedicatively'(i know that’s not a word), then you are wrong :p. I sprayed like maybe three times in a week and massaged my edges with castor oil only a few times.  I know I’m lazy and I saw the results of my laziness afterwards sadly :'(:'(:'(

Well, after taking out the braids, I prepooed and then shampooed. I went ahead to deep condition with Protective Mega Growth Anti Breakage Strengthening deep conditioner which it was my first time of using.

I don’t know if I like the product yet but now I’m back to using my usual.
It’s been like two weeks now and I’m thinking about installing faux locs.
