The harsh cold weather and wind of the winter months can be damaging to natural hair. If you’re in love with your natural hair texture, but you really need to put it away in a protective style for a while, natural-looking crochet braids are the way to go. This style is easy to do and very cost effective.
First, start off with freshly washed and conditioned hair. It is a good idea to deep condition, if you plan to keep the crochet braids up for at least two weeks. You can use almost any braid pattern. However, it is important to make sure the braids in the front are straight. This method makes it easy to part the hair different ways for multiple styles.
The items you’ll need to complete this style are a crochet hook and Outre X-Pression Cuevana Twist Braid hair. This hair matches the thickness of most natural hair to give you that effortless look. This brand can be rodded, twisted and curled in most of the styles that naturalistas do to their own hair.
