Hey Queens!

If you are like me, then I know that you love changing your hair from style to style to always reinvent your look.

One day I can feel like Janet and want to rock “Poetic Justice” braids, another day I may want to rock a weave, and the next I may want to wear my own hair. The beauty of having natural hair is that it is so versatile, and you have the ability to switch between looks, as often as you’d like.

I came across this article on HuffingtonPost that I just had to share because I am in love with this whole crochet braid movement. I mean, not only can you switch up your look for up to 8 weeks, but the style is  low cost, low maintenance and it doesn’t take long to install.

Sounds like a win, win hairstyle to me!

Check out the article below, and let me know your experience with crochet braids, or any advice that you have to keep it looking fresh and poppin!

Crochet braids have reemerged as one of the most popular black hairstyles of the season. Though this hairdo dates back to the ’90s, the modern version looks more “real,” styled with extensions that look very similar to natural hair texture.

As shown in the video below, crochet braids are actually hair extensions that are installed by using a latch tool to crotchet them onto cornrows.
