I've been wanting to do grey/silver hair for a while now and I also wanted to do box braids so i decided to combine the idea. The thing is...my hair is super dense and it takes 8-9 hours to box braid my hair. I decided to try doing the box braids crochet style for a few reasons
1. I'm not using my own hair, so that means less hair to manipulate = less time braiding
2. Less tension. Since my hair would be cornrowed I wouldn't have to worry about the tension from my hair on my edges
3. Since my hair is a medium brown it would have mixed with the grey hair taking away from the vibrancy of the color. By crocheting the length of my braids were completely grey and silver.
My friend installed the braids but they are really easy and can be done yourself.
