Crochet braiding is not a hair style that is as new as one might think, as some women have been getting crochet braids for years with human hair or with tracks of hair that look like there are individual braids attached.

Crotchet braids were and are still preferred by individuals who didn’t want to sit too long and get individual braids in their hair. It was fast and convenient.

HOW ARE CROTCHET BRAIDS INSTALLED?

Crotchet braids are usually applied to the hair by literally crocheting hair extensions with a latch hook tool, in between your own corn rowed hair. Some women use the braiding technique as an alternative to the traditional sew-in hair weave. Purchase Latch Hooks in Nigeria

With the increase in the desire for safer and healthier hairstyles, the natural hair community has evolved this familiar hair style into something versatile and beautiful. Women are becoming more creative with their styling techniques and the crochet braids look very realistic.

FINAL NOTE

The crotchet braid hairstyling technique is a great option for someone who is transitioning or just needs a break from styling their own hair every day. You get the natural hair look, without having to manipulate your own hair (To be honest, one might not be able to tell crochet braids from natural growing hair.) You can also even wash and treat your scalp, which is something that is difficult to do with a sew-in.
