Every year there seems to be a protective hairstyle hype and this year it’s most definitely the crochet braids. Yet it’s good to know the ins and outs of this hairstyle before you transform your hair. 


Crochet braids are the new hype in black hair land! I spot them in the streets, on my girlfriends and on events. It’s not strange that this hairstyle gained and maintained its popularity. It doesn’t only look natural but it’s also not a hair style that’ll give you a sore behind from sitting on it for hours and hours. Crochet braids take about three to four hours to apply, depending whether you’re applying them yourself or with the help of somebody else. It goes as following:

Step 1: apply cornrows to clean and moisturized hair. You have a variety of patterns that you can choose from depending on the type of hair you want to use and how you want it to look.

Step 2: Then you lace the hair of your choosing through the cornrow with the braids needle.

Step 3: You put a knot in the fake hair to attach it to the cornrow. You can also take an extra step and give the fake hair some curl definition by applying rollers. I found the explanation in this tutorial very clear. It explains how you can apply the crochet braids step by step.

Crochet hairstyle has becoming the most popular hairstyle not only for African. More and more people enjoy such cool hairstyle nowadays. Especially in many schools. Although more and more hairstyle coming out now,but crochet braids hairstyle will never be out of date.
