As you know I’m trying to do more with my hairstyles, so I’m declaring this a protective style season (szn) where I’ll attempt to see how many styles I can do. This was to be done from October to December, but that’s just not happening. So, lets say March 2018 will close season.
I got started in October where I wanted something different for my birthday. I still love my afro but was definitely missing the “long” hair. My first option was a wig, but I just couldn’t settle on one. So one day I was on Instagram going through my feed when someone I knew posted a new picture where she had big, curly hair. I was intrigued at once because I knew she had natural hair and this hair fit her so well. I hopped in her DMs right away and she told me it was crochet hair and she did it herself.
I got even more excited. The fact that it was something new and probably wouldn’t cost as much since I could install it myself. So I ventured to YouTube to see how this was done, and to find the right type of hair. Throughout my search I discovered a new youtuber who was doing countless videos with crochet hair and she was also Jamaican (Caribbean sister, yay).
Now as you know, crochet is usually done like weave where you braid your hair then crochet the hair onto the braid. However, she was doing a totally different method ~ BRAIDLESS CROCHET. My interest kept growing as I can’t braid my hair myself at least not neatly. So you can guess what this hairstyle is –
