Crochet braids are definitely one of my favorite protective styles! They're easy to install, age well and have the potential to look very natural! Every time I rock these styles random people stop me and compliment my "natural hair", it can be a bit awkward to explain to a stranger that I'm rocking crochet braids so I usually exclaim "THANK YOU!"
In the past I've done this style using both Afro Kinky Bulk hair and Marley hair. Both are gorgeous! The Afro Kinky Bulk hair looks more like my natural 4c hair texture while the Marley hair resembles a fantastic bantu knot out.
This style is the third that I've installed since starting the Six Month Protective Style Challenge. I've had it in for just about 2 weeks and plan to leave it in for about 5 more weeks. Honestly I'll probably only make it 3 more weeks because I miss my hair! If you're interested in trying this style I'll leave a video with all the details below.
Have you ever given crochet braids a try?
If so, what did you think?
Hope you're enjoying the weekend!
