Crotchet Vanity

Hello lovely people….. Long time no gist 😀

Yea, yea… i’m sorry. Life is happening pretty seriously right now hence my silence on here , make una no vex!!

I’ve been hearing about crotchet braids for a hot minute now and while I completely loved the idea of them, I never had the time/chance to try them out up until a few weeks ago. I saw these really beautifully done one on a gorgeous girl on my instagram feed and I knew I just had to have mine done too. A few co-ordinates later and we had an appointment booked…..

I love it!!!!!!!!!!


I used good ‘ol expression [which has the tendency to tangle alot] but I manage it well. You can use marley braids or human hair braid lines if you want, they’ll all work. It is so versatile and can be styled so many different ways – left/right part, high bun, all back, braided in a fishtail, any which way really and i’m completely loving it.  Seriously can’t get enough! I’ve taken over a million selfies with this hair and my vanity is at an all-time high, i’m not sorry 😛


I be looking at these pictures like…. Go forth and flourish ma nigga! *fistbump*

Another great thing about these braids is the fact that they’re crocheted onto already made cornrows/tracks as you would do when you’re fixing a weave so you can simply part them along those lines and clean with cotton wool & spirit after a workout. No sweaty/smelly hair even after an intense workout session…. Awesome!       

I’ve been kicking ass! Yes yes!

EDIT: After rocking these braids for a few week, I went back yesterday to get them re-curled and I just had to edit this post to add the new pictures…. JADORE!!!!!
