Protective Style Series Vol 11.2 | Caring For Natural Hair While Wearing Crochet Braids

HUGE and VOLUMINOUS FreeTress Bohemian Crochet Braids 
You can make crochet braids to last for 2-6 weeks, if you care for them gently and with patience. Here is what I do to care for my hair when I wear crochet braids:



Cleanse My Natural Hair

Let's get out my handy-dandy Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse! I bun up my crochet braids in 4 sections, to easily reach my scalp. I spray this mixture on my scalp and massage for about 5 minutes, to loosen up the product buildup. Then I wipe my scalp with a warm wash cloth. I do not rinse my hair with water...I do not want to drench my braiding foundation.

The great thing about this regimen is that I don't use a lot of product on my braiding foundation, other using a light mist and an oil. So a full wash and rinse regimen is not necessary for full cleansing.


I do not waste my time cleansing my crochet braids.

Moisture/Seal

This step is the simplest! Once my scalp and hair are clean, I add light mist and light oily to my braiding foundation and hair. Then I lightly massage my scalp for a few minutes.This leaves my scalp feeling very good!

Once I am done, I  allow my braiding foundation to air-dry (usually overnight) while my crochet braids on still in their buns. In the morning, I take my crochet buns down then fluff my hair out. If my crochet braids need it, then I will add mousse to make the hair bouncy and shiny.

Natural hair says: make sure you care for your natural and faux hair during the duration of the style. Just because you have a protective style does not mean you should 'sleep' on up-keeping your hair.


Always Desire Your Natural,
