I can definitely relate! Many years ago when my mum was in charge of my scalp... more times I'd wear my hair not finished until the next braid style ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Real life struggles my daughters will never face #braidedbysteph #repost #hairproblems #relateable

It's all a process โ€ข CROCHET LOCS โ€ข 1. Moisturise (I've been using @cremeofnature lately) 2. Cornrow according to style 3. Crochet locs (I used 'Carribean crochet hair' in colour 1B and red) 4. Accessorise and style to desire ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ #braidedbysteph #crochetbraids #locstyles #locs #loc #hairtrends #hairforblackwomen #londonbraider #hair #hairstyle #braidsganghair #crochetbraids #crochethairstyles #crochetgang #hairlove #branding #loveyourhair #client #hairaccessories #hairfashions #hairinspo #hairtransformation #hair101 #๐Ÿ‘‘

This is my 3rd (and probably last) time using this hair and it still looks ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ ... just a lil quick summary of the steps: 1. Prep your hair and scalp/root: I used a mixture of oils and moisturiser (olive, castor and coconut oil + shea butter) 2. I started off by box braiding 2 rows (16 individual braids) at the front and cornrowing the rest of my hair back into 6/7 cornrows 3. I crocheted the locs into the cornrowed section of the hair to it's full extent, making sure all areas were covered (I used about 6 packets in total - you get 15 locs per packet) 4. I crocheted the remaining locs into the 16 individual braids and wrapped the loc around the braid *short video to follow for this look* #braidedbysteph #braids #crochetbraids #locs #hair #tutorial #hairstyling #hairtutorial #selftaught #hairstyle #braidsgang #protectivehairstyle #fortheloveofcrochet #fortheloveofcrochetbraids #crochetlocs #craft #tips #hairprocess #loveyourhair #londonbraider #london #๐Ÿ‘‘ #braidlife #braid

Braids are a great protective hairdo as you donโ€™t have to style your hair everyday, but it wonโ€™t be healthy unless you nourish it. Once your braids (plaited or crocheted) are installed, it's important to keep your natural hair moisturised. Synthetic hair often dehydrates natural hair. Iโ€™d recommend using a water-based hydrating spray from root-to-ends, then use a light oil on your scalp as needed... #braidedbysteph #fortheloveofcrochet #fortheloveofhair #advice #health #healthyhair #healthyhairtips #hair #hairstyle #londonbraider #hair #braid #braids #moisturizer #haircare #protectivestyles #protectivestyling

Starting off with a good base is key for many crochet styles... and other hairstyles to be honest ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’‡๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ #braidedbysteph #crochet #strong #base #foundation #cornrowbraids #crochethairstyles #crochetbraids #crochet #crochethair #protectivehairstyle #protectivestyles #hairforblackwomen #hair #tips #advice #hair #hairstyle #hairstyles

Give your hair a break!! As much wearing braids is a great protective style, itโ€™s really important to have a break between braided styles. Personally, I normally do 6 weeks on and a month off to ensure Iโ€™m giving my hair time to breathe. #braidedbysteph #hairforblackwomen #hairadvice #hairaccessories #braids #protectivehairstyle #protectivestyles #hair #hairstyles #hairstyle #time #advice #tips #crochetbraids #braid

I was asked how I'm able to braid my own hair so, in a nutshell, here it is... 1. Place the braiding hair into 2 equal halves over each side of the section you want to braid with your hair in the middle 2. Wrap the WHOLE strand in your right hand around the sectioned/parted hair 3. Split the same strand of hair in your right hand into 2 and take one of these separated strands and wrap it around the sectioned/parted hair 4. Now with the base of the braid secure, the hair can be divided into 3 equal strands 5. Begin braiding your hair making sure your hair is blended within the braid (I sometimes use hair jam for the tricky ends) Next video quality will have better lighting (I Promise! ๐Ÿ˜…) #braidedbysteph #braids #boxbraids #crochet #videotutorial #hairtip #hair #hairstyle #protectivehairstyle #braid #braidedhair #londonbraider #fortheloveofhair #braidsganghair #braidsgang

*TIP*: it's always best to hot water the ends of braids... the finish is sleeker and the ends of the braids are secured ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ#braidedbysteph #hairtips #hair101 #hairadvice #braids #braidedhairstyles
