Crochet hairstyles are one of the most popular hair trends today. And for a good reason, they are super easy to install and flattering on almost every type of hair. Crochet hairstyles are a super versatile protective style—which can be worn straight, curly, twisted, or as a braided or faux loc hairstyle, all without damaging your hair—and they’re also just really freaking pretty. This is especially true for styles like box braids, which can be hard on the hair. You can achieve a variety of styling options on different textures with your crochet braids, from going for a long hairstyle or a short one the next day.
Crochet Braids Hairstyles
Crochet braids – if you have not heard of this term, you must live under a boulder. Using a crochet needle, you braid your tresses by cornrowing your hair and adding hair extensions individually into each cornrow. This is a great styling option for people who want to try different looks with their protective style. Since the extensions are sewn into your braids, your hair colour, texture, volume, length, or curl pattern is not altered.
A big reason why crochet braids are so ‘in’ right now is that you can add loose hair extensions, and the result is that they look like natural hair. You can keep them in for 6-8 weeks, depending on how your scalp feels and the environment. For example, if it’s sweltering where you’re at, you might only need to keep the crochet in for about four weeks so that your scalp can get some fresh air. The only thing that will break your hair is if your crochet is too tight or the cornrows are too tight.
