Natural Hair Inspiration 11 | Faux Tapered Crochet Braids Updo With Jamaican Twist Braiding Hair

How To: Braidless Crochet - Outre X-Pression

I thought I try something different for the week and try a different color! This means that it's CROCHET BRAIDS TIME!! I'm not straying from my goals for this year, but I would love to see  how my hair would look. I saw this style and I knew that I just had to do it! So here is my style for the week: The Faux Tapered Crochet Braids Updo

Let's Get Started!


Inspiration

This style was inspired by Outre X-Pression, with the specific tutorial How To: Braidless Crochet . The Faux Tapered Crochet Braids Updo is so simple to do. I really wanted something easy for the week, but chic for my own creative style. So I decided to try this out!

Regimen And Products

I did my wash regimen and African Threading (for heatless method for stretching my hair), with ApHogee Pro-Vitamin Leave-In Conditioner and allowed my hair to air dry during the day. I wanted my hair to be stretched in order to braid my hair down for the crochet hair. Once my hair was completely stretched and dried, I used my Curls Blueberry Bliss Twist-N-Shout Cream, CURLS Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste and Shea Butter Crème to create this flawless look.

Braiding Foundation

I wanted to add a braiding (twisting) foundation to give my style more personality, so I twisted the back and sides of my hair up and did a few braids on top for the crochet hair.



Crochet Braiding

What You Need:
Rat Tail Comb (for parting)
Hair Clips

1 Pack Of Braiding Hair


I purchased 1 pack of FreeTress Equal Synthetic Hair Braids Jamaican Twist Braid from the beauty supply for $4.99 in the color 30. I sprayed water and adding Shea Butter Crème to the extensions 1). to detangle the hair and 2). to not suck the moisture from my hair. The hair is so soft and easy to detangle with just your fingers!
