Crochet braids are the thing these days. If you have no qualms about getting extensions or wearing hair other than that which grows from your own scalp, you might be interested in getting your crochet on. If you are on the fence about it, here are five reasons to get crochet braids.

Crochet braids are versatile: Really the limitations are minimal since there are a wide range of styling options with this style. Whether you desire Mohawks, high buns, waves and curls, Senegalese twists, goddess braids or sister locs, your crochet braids can be styled to your taste.

Inexpensive: At $2 per pack (depending on the brand of hair you choose though) and .99¢ for a latch hook needle or a pack of bobby pins you can give your pocket a break.

Also, since the  technique for installing is quite easy to get the hang of, you don’t have to pay hundreds to a stylist to get it installed because you can do it yourself!

Major time savers: The install time for crochet braids can be as little as one hour inclusive of braiding your hair then crocheting or threading the extensions in. Plus the time it will free up as a result of not having to worry about styling each morning or each week is well worth it.

Enhances length retention: Each inch you grow under crochet braids will be protected from regular manipulation as well as environmental factors, since your ends will be tucked away (The important thing is to ensure you don’t neglect your own hair under there).

If you have been longing to rock some styles but didn’t want to take the risk with your own hair, crochet braids give you free rein to do just that. You’ll be able to cut and shape, color, straighten to your heart’s content without harming your own delicate tresses.


Because You Want To: At the end of the day, it is your hair; the choice is yours. You should know what works for you and what doesn’t. Since you’ve been the one dealing with your hair criticism from others really holds no relevance, (that’s if naysayers can tell the difference because did I mention that if done right these can look totally natural?) so do you boo :).

About Marsha Buchanan


As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing. After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.
