Here’s How My Crochet Braids Held Up after a Month

A few weeks ago, I had my inspiration style, curly crochet braids, installed and I loved how they came out. Following the instructions from a YouTube video, I purchased just three packs of Free Tress deep wave crochet braid hair at 20″ length. I had my stylist cut the braids in half before installing them.

It worked great because it had a look of naturally curly hair. It looked so authentic that I had women of all races come up to me and ask me for my stylist’s contact. They did not realize they were braids.

About 17 days after I had them put in, the braids still looked good. The curls got a little looser and coarser which was great because they looked even more authentic. If that is the goal of any hairstyle, then this style held up and was perfect.
