How long do crochet braids last?
Like any other style, crochet braids will typically last for as long as you want them to. This simply means that with proper care and maintenance crochet styles can last from anywhere between 4 weeks to 8 weeks.
We all know that the best thing about crochet is how easy they are to maintain, and so with just a few products, your crochet hair style can be worn for an extended period of time depending on the style done.
For example, if you choose to get a crochet style that is already pre-made, such as crochet braids, twists, locs, etc., then chances are that you will be able to keep this style in much longer than when done with a bulk hair style.
This simply means that if you choose to install a style such a water wave or a deep wave, the hair will be more susceptible to knotting and tangling if not properly cared for and will therefore need to be replaced more frequently than other styles.
Tips and tricks to help keep your crochet hair style for a long time:
- Grease your scalp as often as possible in order to prevent excessive itching.
- Limit the urge of combing and brushing your crochet hairstyle. If the need arises, then be sure to finger detangle as much as possible.
- Keep your hair dry. Avoid getting your hair wet in the rain or in the shower. This will help with preventing tangling.
- Tie down your hair with a satin scarf every night before bed.
By following these few tips above, you should be able to rock your crochet style for a long long time.
