Latched & Hooked: Best Crochet Hair For Easy Natural Hairstyles

If you’ve been following me or this blog for any length of time, then you know that I rarely write posts about hair. Actually, there was only one time where I shared my 1 year natural hair journey. Other than that, I don’t do a lot of sharing on here because so many people already do, and do it so well (shout out to Vee Pee Jay and Sisters With Beauty). But when my girl and fellow Turks and Caicos blogger Tiffini told me she was launching her new hair company, Latched and Hooked, I was all the way in. I am here for all things crochet and protective styling. And I’m especially here to support women like Tiffini who consistently knock doors down and and inspire moms like me keep showing up and showing out! Seriously…she is #BlackGirlMagic.

I have been wearing crochet braids and protective styles for the last few years off and on. Latched and Hooked has allowed me to spend less time doing something that in turn, adds more time to my overall day. With two girls at home, it’s enough to have to do their hair regularly. So the less time I need to mess with mine, the better. Crochet hair should be beautiful and easy to maintain. And that’s exactly what Latched and Hooked is all about.

In fact, one of the things I absolutely loved about Latched and Hooked is that I no longer have to spend my own time curling and dipping hair in hot water only to get burnt or the curls not to come out the way I want them.

Oh how I do not miss pre-curling the hair myself (granted, this was the first time I had ever attempted it). So thank you Latched and Hooked! When I used to get relaxers in my hair, I loved playing around with color. But somehow, ever since I started wearing my hair natural, I haven’t experimented with color at all. So I took this opportunity to get a little sassy with it.

In this installment, I am rocking the medium curl crochet hair in McKenzie in the colors basic black and brown suga.

I was a little nervous only seeing the colors in the box, but love how they ended up turning out.

And while I know it’s not recommended to get buckets of water splashed on these curls, it was family day at Six Flags a couple of weeks ago. And…well…yeah.

This was shot right after we got drenched, and as you can see, my curls are still poppin’ and in full effect LOL (press play).

This was the anticipation of what we knew was about to happen

And then it happened…like a LOT of water.

But as you can see, my curls are still poppin’ and I’m still cute, so I decided to strike a pose 🙂

I can’t wait to try more colors and get even more sassy with Latched and Hooked.

All in all, I am super pleased at the results and the quality of this hair. Today marks four weeks that they’ve been in. And while, they can surely last a couple more, I’ll be giving my hair a break this week and taking them out.

I also love that Latched and Hooked also offers bohemian, pre-twisted hair options as well. That just may be my next look. And it could be yours too! Tiffini has allowed me to share a special 10% off discount code with you (yes, you). So you can try Latched and Hooked out for yourself.

    I need to do this! I recently saw a video on Facebook and wanted to try that style so I will look into this product. I haven’t been taking care of my hair as I should and this would be a great protective style for me!

      What I like about this style is it’s super easy to install and super easy to take out. It also keeps me from having to mess with my hair frequently. Definitely give it a try and let me know how you like them 🙂

      Thanks Stacie! I was definitely nervous when I saw the color in the box. Girl, let me tell you: once you try it, I don’t think you’ll ever go back to regular braids…like at all. LOL

    Those look really cute on you. I tried crochet braids once and I guess I didn’t get the right hair because I took them out in 2 weeks. I think I’ll give this hair a try. That is for the tip!

      Thank you Ty! Oh no!! Well I can definitely assure you that this hair lasts a really long time. The right hair makes a huge difference because before I started using L+H, the other hair I use would not last nearly as long (or withstand buckets of water LOL).
