Crochet Braids: What Are They? #braids #longhair #crochetbraids

Let’s just get things straight about the magnificent and sometimes mysterious crochet braids. They’re braided hair extensions that are added to your natural hair by looping them under your cornrowed hair with a crochet hook and secured with a little knot. Crochet braiding is actually a technique that involves the use of loose hair too, the point is to secure it underneath the cornrows; that’s why you may see so many different variations of the crochet braids or crochet hair. Remember: such hairstyles are protective, so faux braids won’t ever cause damage. Obviously, to get such a long hairstyle, you don’t need to have long hair: you need to buy long fake braids.

This pic shows how you can do the same and create a stunning, textured half-up bun. Yes, natural hairstyles are impressive.
