|October 2011: Crochet Twists with Marley braiding hair|
I loved it! I only got to rock this style for about 2 weeks because my scalp was not having it. I had an allergic reaction to this batch of hair and had to take them out. :( But I will definitely be revisiting them again.
Like typical crochet braids, on clean hair, all my hair was cornrowed straight back. Hair was then crocheted into the braids with a latch hook. Normally I would braid the extensions down some (and leave the rest out) but this time b/c this hair was a kinky texture, I was able to twist it down some. Instead of the usually curly hair I get for crochet braids, I used marley braiding hair. I like the marley hair better because the texture resembles my real hair texture. I played around with 2 different colors since I probably won't ever color my real hair.
I loved how it turned out. I got a lot of compliments and a lot of people really thought it was my hair and that I colored it. The Marley hair is also great because with crochet braids/twists, after a while, the parts will start to get fuzzy and it better blends with this kind of hair.
I gotta find a wig like this. Or find wefted marley hair and I'll make a wig like this myself!
