Hi ladies

I've recently watched variety of videos on crochet braids which seem to be the new trend now. Most of the videos the ladies leave hair out to have a more realistic look. I remember when i was younger and use to get crochet braids and tree braids the purpose was to braid up your entire head.

So my question is, now with this new styling of crochet braids (having leave out) what is the difference between that and just a regular sew/u-part wig/wig? Is there any benefits for your hair when doing the crochet braids instead of the others mentioned? I'm a wig wearer bc i like to be able to wash my hair whenever i want, but this new style is tempting me lol

Also last question.....i noticed most ladies are using marley hair which is beautiful, but i would much rather use a different brand of hair i love which only come wefted. Is it possible for me to cut the wefts off the track hair and use it as bulk hair?

Thanks ladies :-)

Use bulk hair, hair that is on a weft might shed a lot when you cut it. I haven't seen this new method of crochet braids. The difference would be different tools and hair being used because with the leave out im guessing would you use the same braid pattern.
