Crotchet Braid with Zip Style

What  is the  crotchet braid with Zip style? My Ghanaian readers are already familiar with the zip braid.

The zip braid looks like fish tail braid. Only the roots of the hair are braided that way with the extensions with your hair completely tucked in the braid. This zip braid works best for naturals as you don't have your hair sticking out of the braid. With the root zipped up,  you continue  with the normal box braid or twists.  I didn't twist nor braid the rest of the hair.

I had the front left out of the cornrow for the crotchet. I left it like that to blend with the rest of the crotchet braid. Thus,  only the front part was braided using the  zip technique. The rest of the hair is normal crotchet braid.
The whole process took about 2 hours.

  1. This style looks nice on you. The texture of the braid reminds me of yaki bulk braid, not sure if you have it in Ghana

    I haven't seen yaki here. It's frustrating sometimes not having these types of braids.
