Crochet Braids | The Journey Of HUGE and VOLUMINOUS FreeTress Bohemian

HUGE and VOLUMINOUS FreeTress Bohemian Crochet Braids 

This has definitely been a journey with the FreeTress Bohemian Curls...Here are my weekly pictures of FreeTress Bohemian Crochet Braids:

What are the pros of HUGE and VOLUMINOUS FreeTress Bohemian?

1). Looks very natural - Since I separated the strands either twice or three times, my crochet braids looked very natural. I felt good knowing that no one would pick up that my style was crochet braids.

2). Easy to install - Literally, just use your crochet needle (beader or bobby in) and have about 2-4 hours to do your hair in one sitting.

3). Easy to wrap at night  - Just a satin bonnet and I'm well on my way to Dream Land.

4). Easy to moisturize own hair with applicator bottle or fingers - The beehive braiding pattern also helped with moisturizing my hair strategically. It was also each to cleanse my hair as well.

5). Can 'wake, shake, and go' - If I'm running late, I had no worries about my hair!

6). No buildup on the hair - I didn't use too much product on my hair. Using mousse on the crochet braids really gave my hair lots of bounce and movement. Less product is the key!

7). Loved the braiding pattern - This braiding pattern was simple to put in, simple to care for, and simple to take out. I wanted the 'bang' look for my crochet braids and that's surely what I got.

What are the cons of HUGE and VOLUMINOUS FreeTress Bohemian?

1). No other style options - I didn't have any other options than 'crochet with bang' look. Next time, I will have the perimeter out (or twisted down) and I will be able to have more styling options (bun, pomp, hump, etc).

2). Take a long time to install - Even though this set is easy to install, it does take a long time. Since I am separating the strands multiple times and wanting to create volume it took me about 3.5 hours to do. To me, that's a long time!
3). Will get frizzy quick - Since I separated the strands multiple times, the crochet braids will get frizzy quicker and will be tough to fluff sooner than normal installs.

The FAQs about FreeTree Bohemian and Crochet Braids

"Is this style hard to do?"
Not at all! Check out my tutorial or other tutorials on YouTube.

"Why did you do that specific braiding pattern?
I wanted my hair to lay a certain way and I really wanted to have a defined part for this particular style.

"How do you care for your crochet braids?
I use a huge satin bonnet for the night. In the morning, I just shake and fluff.

Is there anything you would change about your crochet braids?
I would have made this style more into a bob. Since the hair get frizzy quickly, the nape and the bottom of my hair got tangled terribly. So from the start, I would have shape this style more into a bob for less friction of the hair with my clothes.

Is there anything you regret about your crochet braids?
I regret not taking more time to actually do my crochet braids. It doesn't look rushed, but I would have been happier if I taken more time for the process and to cut/style the hair.

The Future Of FreeTress Bohemian

Would I get this hair again?
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this hair! I would get this hair again.

Would I recommend?
I definitely recommend this hair!
