I’ve been looking for a new hairstyle to put a mix on this Protective Styling Challenge, and I think I’ve finally got it. I wanted something that’s big and funky and fun—something completely new! Crochet braids!! Now, I know this style has been around since like forever, but it’s new in my world, and I’m so excited to try it out. I got the idea from one of my natural friends who knew I was looking for something different, and since she knew I was such a big fan of the “natural look,” she figured this would be a good fit. Naturally, after getting her advice, I hit up YouTube for even more inspiration for this style, and now I know for sure this is something I have to do. I didn’t think that there’d be so many variations of the style, but after scouring through TONS of videos, I know which one I’m going to try for my first style. I’m going to go with the basic Freetress Bohemian Curl bulk hair and tie that into my hair for a nice curly fro look. This will be my first time attempting something like this, and I’m hoping that it’ll last at least two weeks before I have to take it out. This seems like a good way to keep my hair under wraps while still looking great. I’ll do another post when I’m actually going to install the hair, so you can see my braid pattern and a bit of the process. Here’s to hoping everything comes out well. Fingers crossed!
Happy Hair Days!
