PROTECTIVE STYLE 2014 | Crochet Braids with Marley Hair
My current protective style is crochet braids done with Marley hair.
This was my first time doing crochet braids. My braid pattern was simple; I cornrowed around my front edges to protect them and the rest of my braids were braided straight back. I braided my hair so that I could have the option of a side part or a middle part.
I bought 3 packs of Marley hair (2 my natural hair color, 1 a honey blonde) and used 2 1/2 for my entire head. I wanted to use Marley hair because it mimics my natural texture and I wanted a natural look. This style took me 4 hours to complete.
Since installing the crochet braids, I’ve most recently done a twist out with flexi rods on the ends and dipped the hair in hot water. Before that, I was in a rush, so I did several big sections curled on flexi robs just to give the hair some shape. I had trouble curling my hair both times and I’ve since realized my sections were too big. I’ll probably re-curl my hair in the next few days.
So far, I have not moisturized my entire head of hair. I’ve only applied castor oil or coconut oil to my edges and nape area.
I intend to keep this style in for 4-6 weeks.
Questions? Just head over to my ask box!
Have any of you every done crochet braids? What type of extension hair did you use?
This little girl is beautiful!
