Everyone wants to have hair that looks gorgeous and majestic, and this is why the hair care and hair styling business is being considered as one of the most profitable businesses today. It's the same with people nowadays, they are love theirself more and spend more time on taking care their bodies.
You don’t have to obsess over taking care of your hair for it to look good all the time. A simple visit to the salon for a bi-weekly trim, purchasing hair care products made especially for your hair type, and taking extra precautionary steps in making sure your hair incurs as little damage as possible are enough to get your tresses healthy.
If you want to go the extra mile to ensure your hair looks its prettiest all the time, though, there’s always the option to have it styled and/or to have extensions or weaves installed and attached to it. Though this option comes with a price, it’s a good way to get hair that would make you proud to say “I woke up like this.”
If you have textured hair, you know that one of the best ways to keep your hair looking fabulous all the time is to get crochet braids added in. You can have your crochet braids done by a professional at the salon or you can do it at home. Here’s a quick and easy-to-follow tutorial to help you through the process.
Before we go any further, though, let’s talk about what crochet braids are. If you’re hearing the words “crochet braids” for the first time, you might get an impression that it’s just another braiding style you can apply to your hair. Well, it’s not.
Crochet braids refer to the method of adding extensions to your natural hair. You start off by doing cornrows on your natural hair and then attaching the extensions to them. It’s just like a regular weave except you don’t sew the hair in. Instead you loop it into the cornrows using a crochet needle, hence the name. Also, the extensions added are loose instead of being on a weft.
Just like extensions and weaves, you will need to wash your crochet braids to maintain them and keep them clean. Here are some of the things you’ll need to do that.
Once you’re done washing, you can start putting in all the other products you usually use on your hair like oils, moisturizers, sealing formulas, and what not. Washing crochet braids may take longer than just washing your natural hair, but it’s worth it if you’re after prolonging them and making them more comfortable to wear and keep.

As it turns out, though, opting for crochet braids isn’t that quick and easy a decision to make (especially if you’re planning on keeping them for a long time and, possibly, reusing them).
