Ghana weaving is nothing new to the beauty scene as it has been around for ages! Ghana weaving is a very popular hairstyle in Nigeria. It is sometimes called basket weaving in this part of the world, banana cornrows, Cherokee cornrow, and invisible cornrow by our “obodo oyinbo” counterparts.
Unlike normal cornrows, this Ghana weaving is done using extensions and these extensions are added in little amount along the length of each cornrow, which increases the bulk and length of each cornrow.
There are quite a number of variations of the hairstyle and the beauty of these variations is in the partitioning of the hair. We have seen the simple and the elaborate styles that have left us wondering how the stylist came about the idea.
I for one, find this style time consuming ( I hate sitting down for braids too, lol) but for a lot of people, one of the reasons why they like this style is they don’t have to bother about styling options or combing or brushing of the hair every day. So it is not time consuming and doesn’t require daily maintenance. It is a good protective style as long as the edges are not pulled taut when being done so the wearer doesn’t end up being a vulture after the style is taken down.
If you are interested in trying out Ghana weaving, here are some styles you can take to your hair dresser to recreate.
