Time for crochet braids again!

I have seen the above picture over and over when looking for big, curly styles. I knew that this would look perfect on me. So I thought, "Why not?" So let's get started!



Hair, Color, And Packs

I am absolutely loving the curls above, so I decided to get the:
Brand: FreeTress
Type: Bohemian Braid
Color: #2 Dark Brown
Price: $5.99/pack (purchased 3 packs)


Purchased from the local beauty supply


Prepping Natural Hair

I prepared my hair by doing my wash regimen and also heatless stretched my hair with the African threading method.


Once my hair is fully dry, I braided my hair in order to have a side part. The top braids were much smaller than the ones in the back so the part would look natural.

The tail is sewn down with tan sewing thread

Crochet Braids Process

I did cut the hair in half, but I did not split the hair. This hair resembles a wash n go style, which I wanted to keep the defined curl. I did not want the hair to be too frizzy at the beginning of this install. The crocheting process took 2 1/2 hours to do! I wanted to really take my time to create the big-hair look, which I did pack a lot of hair in the back to lift the hair on top.

I love, love, love my new style!!!

I'm sure I will keep for 3 or 4 weeks. Since this is a "shake and go" style, there is no styling necessary, which is great for me.


And There You Have It!
