DISCLAIMER: ONLY DO THE FOLLOWING TIPS AFTER YOU HAVE WORN THE WEAVE FOR A WHILE: It is usually very difficult (Though you can you tibe it) to Straighten Synthetic Hair after you have “Kinkified” it!

TIP 1:    Wet your Weave. Shuka 8 fat braids (matutas) on your Weave.

Dip the Braids In a glass of  HOT water for 5 seconds.

Let the hair dry naturally(No heat).(Wrap your head in a silk scarf and sleep) .Next morning; remove the matutas, add come coconut oil and comb thru your hair WITH YOUR FINGERS, massaging your hair gently  to create a look like this.

When you Vigourously comb thru the hair with a WIDE toothed comb. It should create a kinky hair look like this:

Now you can style that Kinky Hair Like this:

If you use A lot of hair, you can use the above mentioned techniques (Hot water + Braids) to create a kinky like afro like this


For those of you who love the Kinky Curly look:

We have Our Kinky Curly Synthetic Hair *BULK in #1 Black.

You can create these looks depending on whether you install a large quantity or small quantity of the weave.

The Hair Can get even kinkier and more natural looking depending on how often you comb the hair.


I would suggest 1st wearing the hair in its original state and detangling it ONLY using your fingers.

After a month or So….Comb the hair out with a comb to create a kinkier afro

Nicole From The blog Moptop maven has hair (Her natural hair) similar to this Weave


Revamp your kinky curls when they start to loose the curl…….

Do some Wet Twists and then Bantu Knots and let Dry Overnight. Then undo the knot outs for an Uber Sexy Aftocentric look

Since deep bulk already has waves, simply take a curling iron and curl
the hair to achieve a look similar to this.

When deep bulk gets old, it still looks very edgy.

You need 1.5 bags of hair (Minimum) to replicate Beyonce’s look above…

Tree Braids

Tree braiding is similar to micro-braids but distinguishes itself from this traditional style by allowing a smooth transition from the braided section to the loose hair. The idea is as you braid your way down the hair, you remove small portions of the hair to be braided from your revolutions.  The removal of this hair camouflages or covers the braid allowing for a more natural look to the braided hair. Tree-braids can be individual like micro-braids as previously discussed or they can use cornrows/lines as a base.

 Cornrow/Lines Tree Braids

These are tree braids that use cornrows/lines as a base .Here are some great pictures from And other sites (Just Google cornrow tree braids) that depict the CORNROW tree braid technique.



You can YouTube “Cornrow Tree braids” to see tutorials on how to do tree braids. Also see the following websites on how this technique that has become an East coast ( USA ) phenomenon. 


Tree Braid Weave

The cornrow tree braid technique can be used to weave hair. Just like how weaves are traditionally done, simply cover the cornrow with your natural hair.

Here are some pictures from and other sites that depict the Cornrow Tree Braid Weave.


The reason why the Corn row tree braid weave is of interest to us is:

1.                  Every Kibanda to classy saloon from Westlands to Mathare can do cornrows/lines hence if they can cornrow, they can tree braid. This also means it will be cheaper to have your weave installed

2.                  This technique will eliminate the possibility of EVER having a bad weave installation. This is of great importance to Tress Freedom. Under No circumstances should there EVER be weird bumps, awkward hair parts or Tracks Showing on a weave installation. Sloppy work is usually done because weave installation has not been a common thing for Kenyan saloons. However, even in primary school, I could “shuka lines”. Hence, the chances of someone messing up your cornrow tree braid weave installation are pretty slim.

3.                  This style will last you for as long as three months and even allow you to easily swim and ponytail your hair without any problems.

4.                  Please look at the versatility of the weave in pictures above!!! You can style the hair any which way you please. Comb it to the Left/comb it to the right. (This is because the hair extensions are somewhat individual and free standing and will go anywhere you tell them. Unlike weft that typically face the ONE side you lay them on) Left bangs/Right bangs/ middle cut etc etc. You can even as much as have all styles available to you on ONE Cornrow tree braid  weave installation by simply leaving the Middle and Side parts of your hair out of the cornrow process to create a weave that can be styled in various ways.

5.                  Most important of all, the Cornrow tree braid weave will allow one to easily do Twist out and bantu knot outs on your weave for amazing styling.



In terms of what type of hair, you can use synthetic or human hair for tree braids. 
In terms of length, to maximize fullness and body, you should purchase hair that is at least 24 inches in length if you are doing individual tree braids. (The braids we normally do in Kenya ).

For cornrow tree braids you can use whatever length you desire to achieve desired results.  Make sure that you purchase individual hair strands (Bulk hair) NOT wefts and mind your wallet.  Unfortunately, due to this technique, it is virtually impossible to re-use the hair extensions


Tress Freedom has bulk hair available to you in different styles.
