Protective Styling: Crochet Braids

ii know ii have been a little slack in updating you guys on my current hairstyles, but im back to share my new protective style..crochet braids.

ii know when some people hear “crochet braids” they think about the old school curly braids some girls used to rock back in middle school, but oo how times have changed.  check it out..

materials ii used:

  • crochet needle


  • 100% kanekalon braiding hair

to achieve this style you want to have your hair cornrowed going towards the back. you then take small pieces of the braiding hair and crochet it into the cornrow. ii like to start at the back and make my way forwards. this style can be a little bit time-consuming (about 4 hours)  but it can last for weeks at a time, depending on how well you take care it.  for a more detailed tutorial click  HERE.



as you can see from the pics ii have listed, ii left a tiny portion of my hair out in the front to cover the closure of the crochet braids to give it more of a natural look.  YES ii flat ironed my hair..eekkk. but of course ii used a heat protectant and ii DON’T flat-iron it everyday. ii have had these crochet braids in for about a week now and they still look good 🙂

    Hi, it looks beautiful. I was wondering wat products you use to keep it soft and from tangling or getting rough. Also do you use a setting product or hot water dip? Thanks!
