A video of Annette flaunting her beautiful braids surfaced online, followed by her expressing disappointment at the exorbitant cost of the hairstyle in Germany. Annette, who is a young mother from Homa Bay county, Kenya, revealed that she had paid a whopping KSh 26,000 for the braids, and compared the price to what she would have paid in Kenya.
She felt that the price difference was too high and decided to learn how to make the hairstyle herself to avoid paying such a high price in the future. Annette even danced to a West African song about splashing money in the video.
Other Kenyan women living abroad echoed Annette’s sentiments, sharing their experiences of paying considerable sums to get their hair done. Katewonyango revealed that she learned how to make her hair herself after being disappointed with the results. Klein, on the other hand, had her hair done in Kenya and hoped that it would last longer than a month.
