How to adorn your braidlocs with Cowrie Shells


See the pictures and watch the videos to see how you can wear the cowrie shells as a necklace or as a hair tie.

My example is with braidlocs of course but it doesn't matter whether if you have a 4C Afro, braids, curly hair or even a TWA. The shiny shells not only adorn every hairdo, they are also go well with every style.


These are very simple to wear. The ties are adjustable and you can pull them over your head. If you have big hair or long locs like me, make sure you put your hair in a bonnet before pulling the cowrie tie over your head.

This will save you the hassle that the tie get stuck or lost in your hair along the way.

Once it's over your head you can easily adjust the tie to whatever length you prefer.

Good luck, enjoy and please send us your cowrie shell style! Click to order.
