After a long, hot, and grueling summer, I decided to give my hair a much needed break by protective styling. I also just started school while working full time, which means I have NO time to do my hair. Rather than let my hair suffer from the neglect, lack of detangling and moisturizing which can easily happen when life gets busy, I decided to protective style by doing a set of crochet braids.
Details on the hair:
Two packs of Freetress Bohemian Braid hair in a color 4/30 and 30 (auburn) which were $5.99 a pack at my local beauty supply store. Each pack was cut in half to achieve a shoulder length style. After completing my crochet braids, I then cut it to frame my face, a bang, and to fall just above my shoulders.
As many naturals have said, this style gets better with age. Some make this style last for up to two months, some make it last a few weeks.
I hope this post inspired you to try out crochet braids for your next protective hairstyle!
