Weave Tips | HUGE and VOLUMINOUS FreeTress Bohemian Crochet Braids

So I have definitely been crushing on Jewellianna aka JeweJeweBee for a long, long time! I love her personality, her YouTube channel content, and of course her HUGE and VOLUMINOUS hair!!! Just check out her channel and see what I mean...

I got to thinking that it's definitely time for another crochet braids set and decided to do a HUGE and VOLUMINOUS set!

Hair, Color, And Packs

I absolutely love the Bohemian Curl pattern, so I decided to go for that curly, kinky look:

Prepping Natural Hair

I prepared my hair by doing my wash regimen and also heatless stretched my hair with the Bands N Twists For Stretched Hair

Once my hair was 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.

Crochet Braids Process

I did NOT cut the dark brown hair in half. I wanted more length in the back, so I crocheted the hair at full length in the back. I did split the hair in 2-4 times. For the light brown hair, I did cut the hair in half and split the hair for the top to create the volume. For my side part, I add hair using the knotless method to create a natural part. Once all the hair was completely in the hair, I shaped the hair into a long bob with my hair shears.

This hair resembles a wash n go style, with lots of frizz and volume. I don't mind the frizz at the beginning of this install. The crocheting process took about 3.5 hours to do, because of all the separating and the shaping. I wanted to really take my time to create the big-hair look.

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

I'm sure I will keep for 2 or 3 weeks. Since this is a "shake and go" style, there is no styling necessary, which is great for me.

And There You Have It!

Natural hair says: Even if you think the curl pattern won't look good on you, try the hair anyways! You never know something unless you try it.
