Crochet hair Extensions: All you need to know

Having been popular from the late 90s to the 00s, Crochet braids (not to be confused with box braid) for some time now has been a growing trend. Crochet braids today have been influenced by the natural hair movement; the textures used are more natural-looking and the styles created are styles that you’ll typically see a naturalista sporting. Chances are you may mistake crochet braids for someone’s real hair, which is one of the reasons we’re big fans of the look.If you’re thinking about jumping on the crochet bandwagon, here’s everything you need to know about this trending hairstyle.

There’s often the misconception of crochet braid as in the hair itself, but it actually refers to the method of braiding. Crochet braiding (or rather ‘the crochet method’) is a way of adding extensions to one’s hair. As with a weave, the basis of the method is first cornrowing one’s hair then applying the extensions to the cornrows.

In addition to crochet braids being a protective style, they’re cheap,reusable, suitable for DIYs(do it yourself) and relatively fast to do.
