Braiding hair: How to make it step by step

We have been brave with French braids, stair braids, root braids or Dutch braids, but there are types of braids that we fight until now. This is a type of braid in which no hair will go out of control, a type of braid which until now has only worn men and women of color. If we refer to African braids it is also called. Today we will learn how to make braided hair step by step and hair style ideas. We will also find ways to protect hair before we start braiding, even if we plan to wear human braiding hair.


How to make braided hair step by step

Braids are a way to weave hair, we can do various types of braiding more or less complicated, and even though they look very difficult, it really is a repetitive motion. The problem is doing braids to other people is easy, the hard thing is doing it yourself. Now with this simple tutorial we will learn how to make braids to make hair styles with braided hair or African braids that cover the entire head.

We will learn how to do it step by step and how we should take care of our hair before we start braiding. Braided heads imply pressure on the hair; African women have hair structures that are more resistant to this type of hair style, so the rest must protect our hair to prevent it from suffering. If you have armed yourself with patience and practice making braids, you are ready to do it yourself at home.

Step One – Wash your hair

The main thing when filling your head with small braids is that your hair is clean, the need is because greasy or dusty hair will be much harder to braid, besides having more chances that the hair style will last less. With our regular shampoo, we will continue to wash our hair as usual.

After washing, we need to break it down to make it easier to braid, avoid tangle, so use conditioner according to your hair type. If our hair is brittle, smooth or dry, we recommend that you apply treatments that can moisturize and nourish hair.

Step Two – Dry and tangle your hair

To make this braid, the hair must be completely dry, so we can choose to dry the air, dry it with hot or cold air. After drying, you must release it thoroughly, without knots, because this can damage the beautiful head hairstyle. To do this task, we need to comb the teeth apart first and then the tooth comb.


Step Three – Splitting Hair

We already have our hair ready, now we start hairstyles. First, we will divide the hair into several sections, specifically into 4 large sections:

    Front left head area
    Front right front area
    Left head rear area
    Right back area of ​​the head

Step Four – Start braiding

The parts must be divided perfectly, it is best to help you with the comb so that the partition is defined. We will hold each part with tweezers, freeing the part where we will start braiding. We take the small strand from the first part, divide it into 3 other small strands and start braiding the strand from the root to the whole hair, when you get to the end of the strand, hold it with a rubber band.

Step Five – Repeat braiding


Now that we are done with the first key, we take the other one from the same part and operate in the same way. When we are done with the section, we will repeat the same steps in the next section. The key must have the same thickness or at least similar, so that it will look flat. Special attention must also be given to the tension placed on each strand, these must be strict but not excessive or they will tend to change shape.

Hairstyles with braided hair

Hairstyles with braided hair are true works of art, not only aesthetically beautiful but also practical. On the one hand it can last more than two months, everything will depend on the growth of your natural hair, and on the other hand they are braided hair that adapts perfectly to your day every day. So we can go to the gym using beautiful braided hair, like we can go to work or to an elegant party if we know how to combine it with matching makeup.

Braided hair glued together

This is a type of hairstyle that is braided with a specificity that the braids are really attached to the head. In this case, the braid starts by first working on the middle key, which is obtained by marking the line with the comb at the initial height of the right eyebrow and the other line at the beginning of the left eyebrow. The key between the two lines will be the key we use first. A very bold hair style but at the same time original and functional since the braids remain glued to the beginning of the neck.

Braided hair by volume

To do the type of hair style that is braided; we must pay attention to the damage that may be experienced by hair. Before making this type of braid, we recommend applying serum to the key that we will use, so we managed to keep the hair in perfect condition without damage, in addition to providing extra luster, as we can see in the image above. A hairstyle consisting of hundreds of braids of the same thickness, a type of hair style that provides controlled volume. Braided hair has many variants because we can make it create various types of hair styles, ranging from high pigtails to short or semi-short hair. In this case, we have chosen to decorate braids with a small ring.

In this hair style, volume is important. Before we start braiding hair, we must calculate the amount of hair we have and the quality. If we have very thin or thin hair, braided hair will add a little volume and might allow us to play more with shape.

Conversely, if we have strong or large hair, braids will allow us to play with volume, creating a hair style as we can see in the photo above. A bun made with braided hair, where different locks or braids play an important decorative role such as making it twist, creating chic lace. Hairstyles to attend important parties or awards ceremonies.

Braided hair in color

We know that wearing hair with different colors can be a risky bet and, above all, only suitable for very young girls. Nowadays we can use help to get hair that is braided in color, help that comes in the form of extensions. If we want to add colored braids to our braid, something special for a party or event, we can switch to our friend’s extension.

We just need to add these color or multicolored extensions and then process them by braiding them with a thickness similar to the one you are already wearing. In this way you can use different colors like violet, red, green or, as we have said, multicolors. Another option is to make braids mix extensions with natural hair strands, this way braids will be very attractive and you can also choose from a variety of colors, including red, pink, green, blue or white.

Finally, I hope this guide is useful. Good luck!
