Crotchet braids

Post by zhedegrl27 » Tue Feb 24, 2015 11:56 am

Yesterday I decided to put my hair into a protective style. I am rocking crotchet braids using the bohemian freetress hair. It only took 2 hours to do and I am loving it!!! I made sure I conditioned and oiled my hair before I put the hair in just to make sure that my hair will benefit from the style and not break off. Let me know what you guys think!

You look GORGEOUS! I am currently also rocking crochet braids & I've had them for a week now. I love how easy it is to just take it down & go in the mornings. Here is me: Image

I used the Freetress Water Wave 22" hair. :mrgreen:

I love both styles but how do you put them in yourself? I would love to do my own hair but don't know how can someone tell me how?

You have to be able to cornrow (braid) your own hair, if you know how to do this, doing crochet braids is super easy.

You hair will be just fine. My best friend got them during the summer @ twice the length since she asked the lady to not cut it in half, and she said it felt the same and her hair was fine afterwards.
