Marley Hair Crochet Braids

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Crochet braids are back at it! I can honestly say i have not done these in a while but after browsing pintrest, I decided to install them but with a different texture of hair.
I have seen beautiful pictures of girls with afro textured hair and I could never find weaved tracks with that matched my likings so marley hair was my best bet.
I purchased 2 1/2 packs of the Noir and Reggae braids for the style (had to go to two different stores). One store only had a color 1, which I never purchased, and the other only had 1b/40 which was even more disgusting but I cracked and used anyway. Each pack ran me about $6 before taxes. I initially had 3 1/2 packs but I cut the first pack and half and after installing two pieces I knew I had to chuck it. 

For the crochet style, I simply followed my method here and made it work. I wanted the hair to look full so I did not separate the pattern pieces and just installed them as is.  I have to admit that the size was drastically overwhelming but it grew on me even after I razored and cut it twice!

At night I simply did two twist, wore a bonnet, then slept away.

In some pictures you will see the hair curly, I just followed my flexi rod video, which I will post below to make it work for this style. 

I kept this style for 3 weeks remarkably with all the tangled glory. I embarked upon everything I was to expect with synthetic hair, especially with the afro texture. Yes it tangles super easy, and yes it shed, but hey it was a cheap fix for my bad hair days, so no complain over here!
