The History Behind Crochet Braids

Crochet braids have been making waves in recent years. This process for adding extensions to your natural hair uses an easy-to learn crocheting technique that protects the integrity of you're locks while giving it some much needed rest with no exposure!

A Pop Culture Background
Hair extensions were a trend in the 70s and 80's. They became popular with rock stars, celebrities who wanted to look like their favorite musicians from that era or just needed some extra length for whatever reason-hair replacement during cancer treatments being one common example! The process of installing individual plaits could take days because it involved cutting off all your natural flowing locks at once which was very tedious back then before we had tools like curlers/ rollers etc... so stylists knew they couldn't wait around forever while clients waited patiently every 24 hours until their next appointment

A Unique Solution
Stylists and the hair industry took a page out of the crafters’ book by creating yarn braids and installing them using a crochet method. When the trend for braiding grew more and more in the U.S., manufacturers in China started supplying wigs in higher quantities. These premade braids were then used for crochet braids.

A Resurgence in Popularity
Beginning in the 2000s and continuing into more recent years, people starting seeking crochet braids again. It is a protective hairstyle that is fairly quick and easy to install. Stylists fell back on the old-school technique of crochet braids. This style is now often referred to as latch hook braids or interlock braids. Stylists use a latch hook to interlock and re-twist braided hair to a cornrow base.

Conclusion The growing popularity of YouTube tutorials and do-it yourself hair guides has led to an increase in the number of people who choose crochet braids as their protective style. The hairstyle is convenient, easy for beginners after some practice but it may sound more crafty than stylish due its method installation which uses chains instead loops like other types of braid Iv'e done before.
