Braid Review: Bijoux Xpression Collection
This extra long jumbo braid was perfect for those with natural hair who want a "goddess" wrap-around look! I had to blow-dry the natural hair client first then integrate the X-pression braid into two big cornrows ending in the back of the head. I had to braid the remaining 100% Kanekalon fiber and wrap the decorative braid around the entire head. The left braid wrapped counterclockwise, and the right side braid was wrapped around the perimeter of the head in a clockwise direction. So the final look of the finished style had three cornrows stacked. I did not take a picture, but I will take a final photo with the next client that I give the hairstyle or I will reproduce on a mannequin. The look is similar to the picture below.

The X-pression Collection braid is Brushable, Tangle-Free and 100% Kanekalon. Since it is extra long in length and I am not a professional braider, it was easy to tangle this braid if you are not used to manipulating the jumbo braid. I was able to brush and comb through it for a nice look. The price is about $4.99 USD at the local beauty supply store.
