5 Reasons Why You Should Be Rocking Yarn Extentions


     Yarn extensions have changed my  protective styling game! I've been installing yarn extensions for almost two years and Pooffie absolutely loves them! Naturally there are a few cons but the good far out weighs the bad! Below are five great reasons to choose yarn extensions for your next protective style.

1.  Yarn Extensions are Light Weight
Yarn is one of the lightest materials that you can use when installing a protective style.  With most braiding hair getting that gorgeous thick, full or long look requires quite a few packs of hair which eventually add up in weight and may end up pulling, breaking and damaging your precious strands. With yarn you get the bulk without the weight. One point to note is that this stuff gets HEAVY when wet, like dislocate your neck heavy. So I wouldn’t advise swimming with these installed.
      2.   Yarn Extensions Offer Endless Colour Options
Yarn extensions offer the perfect opportunity to indulge your creativity. The colour options are pretty much unlimited and you can mix and match your way into My Little Pony perfection if that’s your desire. Personally I love using black yarn as the base colour, throwing in streaks or clusters of bright colours to add a pop. Eventually I’ll work up the courage to rock a head full of baby blue twists! 

      3. Yarn Extensions Are  Affordable
Yarn delivers more bang/braids for your buck when compared to the price of Kanekalon, Marley, Afro Kinky Bulk and other popular braiding hair. 
4.  Yarn Extensions Provide A Natural Texture
One of the best things about using yarn extensions is probably the texture. Yarn has this course, dull look that makes it absolutely perfect for natural hair, especially 4c hair. Most styles using other extensions begin to look messy and unkempt by the second week but yarn ages beautifully! 

5. Yarn Extensions Offer Styling Versatility
Using yarn provides you with a whole lot of versatility when it comes to styling. You have so many options to choose from! Booty brushing braids, chunky twists, a 90’s box braid bob, faux locs or crochet braids and there are some styles I probably haven’t thought of as yet! You can make your protective style as long or as short, as thin or as thick as you like!
