In the life of hair, styles are always re-emerging. I even think I have seen finger waves themselves come back around three or four times in my lifetime (not saying that that is an extremely good thing, but I will say I had a mean set for prom back in the day!). However, one style has made a phenomenal comeback, crochet braids.
Now, when we say crochet braids, we have to be clear that we are not talking the old school crochet’s with the parts in between the hair. While the install maybe the same, the hair being used for the recent crochet braids phenomenon is completely different. Sisters are now using marley hair–which is afro-like, kinky textured hair, often used in kinky twist style–to crochet the hair onto basic cornrows.
With the marley hair, they are rodding, bantu knotting, and rolling it on flexi rods, creating beautiful twist outs and big fluffy curls. It’s an awesome protective style, and for those that may not have thick full tresses, you’ll love this the most. With all the tutorials out there, there are plenty to check out and see which method works best for you.
Something to remember: Synthetic hair can often be very drying to natural hair. It is vital that you moisturize both your scalp and your hair when you have crochet braids installed.
