Crochet braids are a type of protective hairstyle that involves braiding extensions into cornrows using a crochet needle. The crochet needle is used to pull the extension hair through the cornrows, creating a loop. The extension hair is then secured by knotting it onto the cornrow. The process is repeated until the entire head is covered with braids.
Crochet braids can be done with a variety of hair textures and types, including synthetic and human hair. They are a popular option because they are quick and easy to install, and can last for several weeks with proper care.
It is generally not recommended to dye crochet braids, especially if they are made with synthetic hair extensions. Synthetic hair is not able to withstand high heat or chemical treatments like human hair can, so attempting to dye synthetic hair could cause irreparable damage.
It is advisable to use a semi-permanent hair colour made especially for synthetic hair if you must dye your crochet braids. But be aware that the outcome might not be what you expected, and the colour might not come out as you had hoped. Furthermore, you ought to be ready in case the synthetic hair is harmed.
It might be advisable to think about getting pre-colored hair extensions, using colored hair chalks or temporary hair sprays to add color to your braids without damaging the hair, or using colored hair chalks or temporary hair sprays if you want to change the color of your crochet braids. A professional stylist should always be consulted before making any significant adjustments to your crochet braids.
