Crochet Braids

Crochet Braids Long

New year and a new hair style, Crochet Braids!! Towards the end of last year I'd had enough of my hair having recently started my hair journey and desperately wanted a change. First I thought I would just chop it all off and dye it red although having talked with my sister (queen of all things hair!) thought that might have been a bit too drastic and what if I hated it there would be no going back! I have always loved my sisters Crochet Braids and thought the fuss free style might suit me too so asked (emotionally blackmailed) her to hook me up! Being the wonderful sister she is 'if Carlsbergs made sisters...' she agreed. I decided to go for a looser curl so it looked a bit more like my natural hair type and LONG, why the hell not? I  thought I might as well have what I can't have naturally. After four long hours we referred to my new hair style as 'Cousin It' there was so much hair and I thought I'd gone too far with the length but after a few professional snips from my sister I loved it! Dare I say I even felt a bit sexy - oooh errr! The maintenance of the Crochet Braids has been so simple, literally wake, shake and go! The perfect hair style for a mummy getting ready in a hurry!  I think Crochet Braids will be my new best friends for the next few months.

  6. Thanks! I also contribute to a hair blog, you can find more details on how this style was achieved and where you can buy the hair from etc... on here http://simplyintomyhair.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/long-crochet-braids.html
    Personally I would refrain from getting it wet in the swimming pool as it may damage your own hair underneath, for more info on maintaining your hair in crochet braids I would personally refer to the above blog, there are loads of tips on there and Tracey is very helpful. Thanks for commenting x

  10. Hi Carissa ! I´m getting this crochet style done because I was so inspired by yours ! It´s also my first time getting crochet done.I have 3 questions for you. 1) Did you wash the hair before you installed it? 2) What was your cornrow pattern? 3)Did you blowdry your natural hair before doing your cornrows?

  11. Hi ,what type of hair is this ? I like it

  12. Getting this curl pattern installed tomorrow! Can't wait!!! Although the length will be taking me out of my comfort zone but I'm up for something different! I love crochet braids! It's super convenient especially with having to get a 3yr old ready in the mornings! And the maintenance is easy as well!
