Hello my Natural Sisters,

Can I tell you how I just fell IN LOVE with this new protective style called Crochet Braids! One of my friends from school had them in, and I just had to try it out for myself. I absolutely love it! This protective style is very easy to do and manageable for all my busy working women out there. I suggest using Marley hair which you can purchase from your local hair store for only $5.99 a pack… did I mention this was a cheap hair style?!?! Depending on the size of your head you will only need 2-4 packs of hair, if you haven’t noticed my head is kind of big so I used 3 packs. Marley hair comes in all different colors so you will be able to add a little spice of color with this hair style and keep it fresh. This protective style is very helpful when it is time to oil your scalp because of the braids all you have to do is separate them and apply the oil. Here is a video on how to do these wonderful Crochet Braids: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phJvNpzAo-Y#action=share

Once you have done the first step you then want to begin to think of what size curls you want. If you are try to have more of a smaller curl I suggest using a smaller perm rod (The pink one), But if you are try to have more of a bigger curl I would use a bigger perm rod or a flexi rod. Here is a video step by step on how to produce these wonderful curls: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txCk7c2Wn4U . How every you do not have to curl your hair I know a lot of women that leave the Marley hair in its natural state and rock it just as well. I hope you ladies enjoy this hair style as much as I am, until next time cutiessss.
