An American woman posted on Twitter how shocked she was for paying Kshs. 2400 to braid her hair, contrary to what she expected compared to rates back in her country.
Daria Antrese posted a video showing her long braids moments before leaving the salon.
She said: “I got my hair braided in Kenya Africa today for 22$ they are knotless & passed my butt. I love it here.”

Kenyans On Twitter said it’s time salons started charging foreigners similar charges as in their countries.
Here are some of the comments from the post:
@iamzelipher said: “And if she knew that KSh 2400 is still expensive she will faint. Making hair on an average is between KSh 500 and KSh 1000.”
@LyciaJay commented: “Omg! These are beautiful sis! I really hate America because these are easily charging KSh 50k without the hair and washing and blow-drying not included.”
