I did that off and on from eighth grade to high school. Especially during homecoming I would add red and white extension hair and a few of my braids would be changed out to color. It always caused a sensation. So now that I do African Threading from time to time I use colored silk thread (quite pricey) to wrap around my strands and it looks great when I put it in a style.


I just got my silk from Amazon, where do you get yours?

Seriously! Girls were doing this when I was in the eighth grade. Lil Mo set the trend.
