As much as I love rocking braid styles such as; box braids and singles, I am aware of how long they take to complete. When you live a busy lifestyle it can be hard to sacrifice 5 hours for a new set of braids. Since I am always on the look for a new way to create gorgeous braid styles, I was so blown away when I stumbled upon this new style. I was looking for a style that would allow me to workout, run errands, and still look pulled together for those more professional settings. I found Goddess jumbo cornrows, and boy was I impressed with this style.

 I am all about protective styling and keeping my edges intact. I also like to nurture my scalp on a daily basis. The Goddess Jumbo cornrows allow me to follow a hair protective plan with ease and in a short amount of time. This simple style calls for one to braid their hair in cornrows in any desired way. I opted for a slanted cornrow style in my latest look (included photos). Once your hair has been cornrowed, you then take your pre-braided, extensions and you sew one onto each of your braids. You can get a better idea from our tutorial video below.

 The purpose of this style is to decrease the amount tension your hair receives. You no longer have to worry about your hair breaking as it is mixed with the synthetic or human hair. Since your real hair is covered by the pre-braided extension, you won’t have to worry about the look of frizz. You are able to wear this style much longer than any other goddess jumbo style. The best part is that you can reuse the extensions over and over. This not only cuts down on time, but also the cost!

If you are looking for ways to change up your hair style in time for Holiday Season, then you may want to give crochet braids a try. Crochet braids can take on a variety of appearances leaving you with a ton of hairstyles to try.

 My new favorite way of wearing crochet braids is with human hair. I chose to use human hair so that I could change the style with heat as often as I’d like.

I was going for a sophisticated, sultry look and I knew that I wanted to wear waves, loose curls, and spiral curls. The beauty of wearing crochet braids is that your real hair is completely covered and out of harm's way.

This style is perfect during the colder months when the weather can’t help but leave our hair feeling depleted. You can cornrow or have your hair cornrowed and tucked away and know that your hair will flourish as it is protected.

 When having your hair cornrowed, it is important to think in advance about how you'll want to wear your hair. Will you want a middle part? Or will you want a side part that allows you to sweep the hair over your eyes? The choice if yours, and you may have to complete few crochet braid looks before you find your ideal way.

It is also important to remember that the flatter your cornrows, the flatter the human hair will lay on your head. If you are going for volume this may not be an issue for you but if you want a flat, sleek style, make sure that you opt for smaller cornrows.

 Moisture is something to remember before braiding your hair. You want to make sure that your hair is moisturized with a water-based moisturizer and sealed with a heavy oil like shea butter or even Jamaican castor oil. The heavier the sealant the better. Once your hair has been braided, you are ready to install the human hair. Installing the human hair takes very little time and can be completed in 3 hours or less.

You can decide on the length and fullness based on the kind of styles you’ll be wearing. Once you have installed the hair, you can decide if you will be cutting or shaping the hair into a desired look. I kept my style as long as possible because I knew that I wanted long, loose curls.

Human hair crochet braids make for a beautiful, protective style.
