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.
To remove crochet braids, follow these steps:
Oil or conditioner
Begin by cutting the extensions close to the base of the braid, being careful not to cut your own hair.
Once you have cut the extensions, use a hair tie to secure the braid so it doesn't unravel.
Apply oil or conditioner to the base of the braid to help loosen it from your hair.
Use a wide-tooth comb to gently comb out any tangles or knots in the braid.
Starting from the bottom of the braid, gently unravel it until you reach the hair tie.
Undo the hair tie and continue unraveling the braid until it is completely removed.
Repeat the process for each braid, working slowly and carefully to avoid damaging your hair.
Once all of the braids are removed, wash your hair with shampoo to remove any remaining product or residue.
Condition your hair to restore moisture and prevent breakage.
Style your hair as desired.
Note: Be gentle when removing crochet braids to avoid damaging your hair. If you encounter any knots or tangles, don't pull or tug on them as this can cause hair breakage. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle the hair.
