Now that the summer is winding down, you may be looking to transition into a new hairstyle. For some, it means growing out a funky cut that you tried for the summer. With growing out your hair comes the awkward stage that we all wish we could avoid.
As you know, crochets are a great protective style to help promote healthy hair and growth. The hair is inexpensive so you can change styles frequently. Crochet styles can also be used as a trendy way to grow out a hair cut without falling victim to the in between stages.

You don’t have to wait until your hair grows to rock an updo. Jumbo twists provide the perfect amount of volume to offset tapered edges. Use color and hair jewelry to add personality to the look. One of the benefits of wearing crochet hair is that it is lightweight. You won’t have to worry about the stress of the updo on your hairline. As the tapered section begins to grow out, it can be braided and crocheted. This styles transitions with your hair.

Kinky twists are a favorite in the natural hair community because they mimic most African American hair types. For a natural, textured look try crocheting small kinky twists in the top section of hair. To add to the look, braid or twist the hair at night to create wavy twists. As the style ages, you can untwist the kinky twists to create a curly fro, or twist out look. As your hair grows out, try kinky twists in longer lengths to cover the tapered sides.
Are you ready for long locs immediately? Just because you’re rocking a tapered look doesn’t mean that you can’t rock long locs. The contrast of the longer length and tapered sides provides a cool “in between” style. You can flip the locs to either side, add hair jewelry or even style in an updo.
