Being that crochet braids have become a popular protective
hairstyling option for many naturals, I am sure some of you are
wondering “Can I wear this style for vacation?”. Well, it all depends on
the type of hair that you use for your crochet braids.
If you went for the trendy twist out look using a marley hair curled with rods and dipped in hot water,
your style is most likely going to be destroyed if you try swimming in
it. Not to mention it will also be uncomfortable and too heavy.
Never fear, naturalista! All hope is not lost. You can still have the
joy of flaunting some awesome crochet braids on your vacay, you just
have to go with a different hair type that can handle wear and tear from
The Freetress Bohemian brand
is a better choice if you need a hair that can withstand going in and
out of the pool. If your hair texture is not on the wavier side of
things, you should do a full crochet braid install rather than leaving
some hair out to avoid spending too much time blending your hair texture
with the synthetic hair. Remember this is your vacation time! Make
things as easy and hassle free as possible, you deserve a breather.
