Kinky hair and straight braids do not mix. Almost like oil and water. If you use normal, straight braids, chances are that your hair will start peeking through within 2 weeks. Which is not a problem! However, if you’d like your cornrows and braids to last longer, there are now kinky braid options for you thank heavens. There are also kinky weave styles that will blend right in with your hair. Let’s look at some of them:
1. Rasta Dread
Darling’s Rasta Collection is perfect for the dreadlock feel! The braids look so realistic and blend in perfectly with natural hair. They won’t know where your hair starts and where it ends. You can definitely crochet as well as feed it into your hair for braiding or twisting. You can also use it to create faux locs whether short or long and you can use it to create a fabulous ponytail.
2. Marley Kinky
