Crochet Braids | A Step by Step Tutorial

What the hell are crochet braids?



I am glad you asked. As the name suggests, crochet braids are hair extensions that are literally crocheted into your own hair (braided into cornrows) with a latch hook tool.

Susan Bates Bent Latch Rug Hook with Wood Handle





  It's already heating up here in Florida and I'm itching for a new style for my locks. I really do not want to cut my hair shorter but would love to just put it back out of the way.

While searching for different braiding and dread styles I came across this technique.
I am willing to give it a shot and who knows maybe it will give me more of an island exotic vibe.
I'll post some pics when I'm done.
For now...
