The Best Way to Insert Your Hair Beads


"the sound of plastic or wooden structures clashing together when you shake your head makes you want to leave the beads In your hair forever"

A few hours after my deep conditioning treatment I decided to make the Lilian Okibe temporary locs I looked in the mirror and felt something was missing I wanted to make it look more beautiful and I remembered I had beads so I started inserting one of them..
Putting the beads to place was my major problem,the fact that I didn't want to use a small rubber band to hold my hair in place because it might lead to hair damage.

I decided make use of brazilian wool..as I wrapped my moisturized ends round the beads I wrapped the wool around my ends gently until it was firm and that was it!..

Girl what's your point?..I know you're asking
You see my point is, a lot of people that get their natural hair done with beads always use rubber band to hold them in place and when it's time to remove it they loose more hair at the tip because rubber band has a way of tangling with the hair thereby causing breakage...if you ever want to put beads in your natural hair do not make use of rubber band except you want to loose hair...you can either use the rubber thread ,yarn wool thread, brazilian wool thread or a very soft non synthetic band.

Another thing is most people don't care if their hair is moisturized before attaching the beads. 
You want to understand that placing the beads in your hair till you take off the protective style say after 2-3weeks..means your ends will be moisture-free for that long which might eventually result to split ends and breakage.
 
Moisturizing your hair before inserting the beads means it'll stay moisturized longer than normal because your ends will be inside a case for a long time...it'll avoid environmental factors that take all the moisture ...

I know the sounds of plastic or wooden structures clashing together when you shake your head makes you want to leave the beads In your hair forever but If you're carrying your protective style for more than 3 weeks ensure you take a time after a week or two remove the beads and moisturize your ends...
