What type of hair is this
Marley braid hair
What type of hair was the first hair style
It's probably all Marley braid hair that has been curled on rods.
So how do you maintain the curls? And is it harmful to your real hair?
Aundrea, when you curl Marley hair on roller rods, the curls maintain themselves surprisingly well! I kept curled Marley hair crochet braids (that I curled myself on rods) for a month and there was barely any visible wear on my curls even in week 4. I pineapple'd my hair at night which is just piling the hair up on the very top of your head in a high ponytail and tied it up with a satin scarf to sleep. With crochet braids, your hair is completely protected underneath in cornrow braids and the added hair is crocheted through your braids. As long as your hair isn't braided too tight (too tight styles can pull at the root and isn't good for the overall health of your hair) you should be fine. Hope I answered your questions :)
Hi. Lovely hair. I'm in love. This may be a dumb question. Is it you in the pics? If so did you do your own hair and do you do other people's hair? Are you in New York ?
Do you do other people's hair?
Hi Melissa, unfortunately no to all of your questions. I'm not in NYC, I don't do hair (outside of my own) and that's not me in the pics sorry. THIS is me... http://hipcandy.blogspot.com/2015/02/my-4th-DIY-crochet-braid-install.html?m=1
What kind of rod you used
For my hair, I use the pink rods.
What brand of Marley.hair do you use? Which id's the best
I've used all different kinds of Marley hair, if you're going to roll it on rods the brand kinda doesn't matter. Some hair is softer (more expensive) and some hair is courser and kinkier (less expensive) I tend to buy the less expensive hair.
How many packs of hair did you use
I've personally never used more than 2 packs of hair. If I had to guess about the girls in the above pics, I'd say they all used more than 2 packs. Probably between 3 and 4 packs total.
