~*Simple everyday styles than anyone can create within minutes*~
Section hair in desired amount. Here I did a zig-zag part just to keep things fresh.
Work with either damp or pre-stretched hair. It's mush easier to braid when the hair is not in it's dry shrunken natural state. I used a blow-dryer on cool setting to stretch the hair
Before you begin French-braiding each sections; install a regular corn-braid in the middle.
Make sure to do sort of an elongated oval for this section with sufficient hair left out all around to cover the corn-braid
I also try to make sure that the corn-braid is not too bulky. Do not braid all the way to the ends (<--see hair clip securing braid)
Comb/brush the rest of the hairs to remover any tangles
A styling aid can be applied also to help tame fly aways. I used a tiny amount of Eco Styler Gel
Begin French-Braiding the remaining hair directly on-top of the corn-braid, making sure to brush/smooth as you go to prevent bulk and/or thin spots.
Once you get to the base, remove clip from corn-braid and integrate hair with the ends of the French Braid.
*MAKE IT YOUR OWN*
|To make this a protective style, tuck the ends under the base of the French-Braids and secure with bobby pins. *Don't forget to moisturize and seal first :)*|
Get creative and add a design to the sides and/or front. This will not only give your French-Braids an interesting twist, but will reduce the amount of hair you have to work into each braid.
A Quick Video On How To French Braid:
Start with 3 sections and alternate with bringing the outside pieces into the middle. Just like a regular corn-braid, except instead of bringing the hair under the braid you bring it over. And work on making it a lot cleaner than my braids:) lol
