How To Crochet Straight Hair?
The best thing about crochet straight hair is that you can do the whole process by yourself, unlike the sew-in hairstyles. We’ll tell you what to do step by step, but we also recommend you to watch a tutorial video, too. Just to have a better understanding of what it’s like and what results to expect. Okay, so let’s go.
What do you need:
- A crochet needle;
- A few packs of pre-looped straight hair (Kanekalon straight hair or any other synthetic hair you prefer);
- Bobby pins;
- Time and patience.
The whole process of crocheting straight hair starts with cornrow braids which you make out of your natural hair all over the head. There are quite a few braid patterns that can work well for crocheting, so make sure you pick the one you will be able to do by yourself. Otherwise, you’ll need some help from the other person.
So, start with braiding a bunch of braids, which are not too big and not too small. Find a happy medium. Most braid patterns include braids that go straight back and at the back go whether zig-zag or horizontal. Basically, check the possible braid patterns for crocheting straight hair. The next thing you need to do is to pay attention to the parts between your braids where you want your hair to be parted when the hairstyle is ready.
Once you are done with the braiding part, you’ll start the crocheting part, which is not so difficult as it may seem.
First, you put the crochet needle through your hair and place the hair that is already nicely pre-looped for you inside the needle and close the latch. Then you pull the needle back, grab the rest of the hair and knot it. Make sure you do the nice little secured knot close to the scalp. You can make a double knot, though. Double knots will prevent the slipping out since single knots are much looser. So, you will repeat the same process over and over again until the whole head is ready.
If you don’t like too much hair on your head, you can leave a few spaces here and there. You don’t have to cover every inch of your own hair. Use bobby pins to place the hair the way you want it to be and to create an invisible part.
