Box braids never fade as we all know. No matter how you desire to wear every new hairstyle out there, you’ll still want box braids now and again. But then, a major fear of box braids is the time and cost that goes into making them with attachments. 

With crochet box braids, that shouldn’t be a bother, as it takes not more than 1-2 hrs to install crochet box braids. It is also cost-friendly and you can wear it again and again unlike an attachment that you dispose of after use.
