I finally did it! lol I made crochet braids and it looks really good. I’m not really into tutorials and all but i’ll try and show you how I did it.

What I used:

  1. Super star 100% kanekalon hair
  2. Crochet latch hook
  3. Weavon rollers
  4. A pair of scissors
  5. A bowl of hot water


I had been reluctant to make crochet braids earlier on because I thought it could only be done using marley hair. It was until I stumbled on a tutorial on Hadassah’s blog that I realised that Kanekalon hair could also be used to make crochet braids.

How I did it:

  1. I cut the kanekalon hair into four parts because I wanted a shoulder length then I picked the attachment to give it a feathery look ūüėȬ†IMG_20160123_200503.jpg
  2. I then rolled the attachment around my weavon rollers and held them in place.
  3. After rolling the attachment on to the rollers, I dipped them in a bowl of hot waterIMG_20160123_200330.jpg
  4. I then brought them out and placed them on a towel to coolIMG_20160123_200456.jpg
  5. Then, I removed the attachments from the rollers and they gave really beautiful curls. I did this for the whole packet.                                                                                  IMG_20160123_200558
  6. Then I braided my hair. (i’m sorry, there are no pictures of the braids because there was no light)
  7. Then I installed the kanekalon hair with my crochet latch hook.IMG_20160123_231339.jpg
  8. That’s it!






PS: It took me less than two hours to do the actual installation but it sure took me a while to prepare the kanekalon hair for installation. It looks good doesn’t it? Now let’s see how long it will last.

See you all next time ūüôā and please show your hair love.

    Oh you’re pretty!!!! I kept wondering how the femaleigboarchitect looks and there bam! i saw you. fair and smooth faced. Great! well, the crochet braid’s a weave! i didn’t know. it looks lovely although the picture didn’t do enough justice. Tip: let the pic for a hair article be brighter next time. Although i know how frustrating it can be to take a good enough picture given your location or the time of the day. Nice one sis!
