How to Crochet Braid

This hairstyle is actually a 3 day style because on the third day it was such a fail I had to take it out. Now the end may not look like a fail but the upkeep and maintence of THIS TYPE OF HAIR is very hard. Now crochet braids with other types of hair I can maintain. This hair was truly a hard task and I could not take it but here is the how to. 

First you want to start off with freshly washed, conditioned, moisturized and corn rolled hair.

You take the latch hook and you slide it under your cornroll while the hook is OPEN. 

You then place a loop of the hair onto the latch hook and you close the latch. Be very careful because you do not want to snag any of your hair in the process. 

You then pull the hair through underneath the corn roll. 

You will be left with a loop of hair, You then do a slip knot with the hair from the other side. 

After you make the knot or loop you simply pull the hair through. 

Once you get the hang of it you will have beautiful and uniform knots with hair on them. 

This is my big crazy hair! 
To maintain this look you must braid your hair up every night! Small tight braids so it can last. They you simply pluck it out in the morning. 


  1. Where you using synthetic hair or human hair? I'm asking because I'm surprised it only lasted 3 days. It's very beautiful though

  2. HELP! What brand of human hair did you use? I've been searching high and low to find human hair that is marley braid texture because I want it to remain soft even after having it in for a while.
