Crochet Braids using Darling Vogue Curl

Crotchet Braids

I have put my transitioning hair away in a protective style to shy away from manipulation for a bit… and the special part about this time, is that I did it all by myself! Yep! I did. I did Crotchet braids using Darling Vogue Curl hair piece.

I prepped my hair by washing and deep conditioning my hair following the routine I shared in this post.

Crochet Braids using Darling Vogue Curl

After air drying my hair, I cornrowed my hair. I cornrowed my hair horizontally at the back and vertically in the front. This process took me about an hour and funny story, I did this while visiting with and chilling with friends *hangs head in shame*.

Crotchet BraidsThe next day when I was fresh and ready I attempted Crocheting for the very first time. I made sure that I am nice and comfy. I played my favourite series and I got to work.

This process took about 5 hours. I found that I had to go in again over the tracks because it looked patchy with just one layer per track. But in the end I am very happy with the results.

Time Spent: approx. 5 hours

Fibre used: one pack

Tools used: Crotchet latch hook needle

Duration of protective style: I plan to keep it for 4 weeks
