Crochet Braiding Hair Basics

Crochet braiding is a method of installing synthetic hair. This can be done as a protective style, but also because it allows you to change up your hair as often as you'd like without making drastic changes to your natural hair! First, you need to braid your hair into cornrows so that the hair can be crocheted in through your natural hair. Then, simply crochet the synthetic hair into your natural hair and voila!

 

What kind of styles are available?

Curls, locs, braids. There is a wide range of curly styles available from loose waves to tight curls. In addition, crochet hair can be twisted into locs or you can buy hair that is already dreadlocked to create a faux loc hairstyle. You can also buy pre-braided crochet hair in case you don't have the time to get your hair properly braided. In addition, you can buy crochet hair that is pre-looped which will make the process much easier and go by much more quickly.

How should I install crochet braiding hair?

You can install crochet braiding hair yourself, but people usually visit a stylist to get it done for them because it is a long process. First and foremost, you need to cornrow your hair in order to install the hair. Be sure that your scalp and hair are moisturized thoroughly before you begin crocheting your hair. Then, you'll need a crochet braiding hook and the hair you want to use.

How should I take care of my natural hair while wearing crochet braiding hair?

A spray bottle will be your best friend! You can use the spray bottle to spray your scalp and roots with diluted shampoo conditioner and moisturizer (basically, shampoo, conditioner or moisturizer mixed with water) to clean your scalp and keep it fresh. You can simply rinse the product away once you're done scrubbing. Don't forget to massage your scalp with your favorite oil at least 2-3 times a week. 

Also, remember to always sleep with a satin scarf! This is not only good for your natural hair but for your crochet hair as well.

How can I take out the crochet braiding hair?

To take out the crochet braiding hair, simply cut the as close to the cornrows as you can without cutting your natural hair. Then, apply your favorite oil to your hair until it is saturated. Start unraveling your braids and the leftover crochet hair will simply fall out.
