Why We LOVE Crochet Braids

Why We LOVE Crochet Braids

So like many other women there is a sort of fascination with hair in many ways. This fascination may be either the presence or absence of hair. But even on shaven heads women love to consider themselves as chic. Well let me proclaim there is a ‘new’ chic fascination rising here in the Caribbean. This does not mean it is new overall but its popularity is surely increasing. 

Yes women are finding crochet braids more versatile. Some persons just desire to experience something new (fad). However there are benefits to do this new do on the block.

Why Try Crochet Braids
First if you are trying to grow your hair, that is increase length retention, crochet braids is said to be the way to go. The reason being that the hair is resting (no combing). Also it is a protective style which means your ends are not exposed and scalp maintenance is possible via: oiling, massaging and even cleansing with apple cider vinegar on a cotton swab.

Secondly, there is the styling versatility. Crochet styles can last up to three months (experience here) without locking or matting. It can be worn straight, curly or in an Afro for all the sisters of colour who are challenged with detangling. In addition, crochet styles also include hair that is ombre so you do not need to worry about hair damage to achieve colour. There is the knot-less version that has a more natural appeal as though it is your own hair.

What is the edge of crochet braids over sew in? 
Will it soon fade back to normality? The prices for crochet styles are far higher than sew-in weaves by at least $1000 JD or $10 USD. The cost of the hair is also of greater expense being $400 to $800 JD or $4 to $8 USD per pack. The reality is that usually no less than three packs are needed letting the average style cost at minimum $1200 to $2400 JD or $12 to $24 USD for hair alone. 

Well do not get me wrong, I still love crochet braid and even wore it for my first official shoot for the United Nations Pageant in the featured picture. So guess what? Try it if you may and let me know what you think?
