Natural Nation launches an exciting range of fashionable crochet hair packs for protective styling #NaturalHair #Abuja

Crochet braids are a great protective style that works wonderfully for natural, relaxed & transitioning  hair.


It is  a styling technique that involves braiding your hair into a cornrow base.  

Just like with a sew-in, various braiding patterns are used for different looks – straight back, circular and more.  After your hair has been braided, loose (bulk) hair is attached to the cornrows using a latch hook, which is how this style got its name – “crochet braids.”




Your choice of hair depends on the look you are trying to achieve but curly textures give the best results because their fullness usually hides the cornrows and attached hair.



There's absolutely  no chemicals, thread, bonding glue or any other adhesives used to create the style.  

All of your hair is braided down, making it a full protective style.  You are able to wash, condition and moisturize your hair beneath the hair the same way you would with a sew-in weave.  Crochet braids generally last about 6-8 weeks with proper care.



Natural Nation now stock a range of very fashionable crochet packs to help you achieve various looks e.g the Jamaican deadlock look, Mambo Satin twist and the sister lock look in an even wider variety of colours than ever seen before.

For further information, please walk in to any of the branches in Wuse II, Gwarimpa , Apo or Mabushi or alternatively call us on
