Whether they are woven naturally and directly from the hair, or made with additions, they know how to stand out from the braids and braids of hair called Caucasian. The African braid is distinguished by its finesse but especially by its multiplicity. Indeed, afro braids are woven rather compactly and multiplied dozens of times. The time of realization is consequent and can take many hours, when it is to braid only natural hair, but the addition of already woven extensions will make the task easier.

1- Plan your style.

Having in mind what your final goal will look like will help you find the way to get there. You can simply imagine, draw, or make marks on a wig holder, in order to have a more concrete idea. The ideal amount of mats will likely be four to six sections to start, from the front to the back of the head.
Determine beforehand the path that the braids must follow. Do you want them to be straight, going straight back and forth, or do you want them to be curved? Finally, it is also necessary to determine the width of these.

2 – Moisten the hair.

Spray water, alone or mixed with detangler. Paint or brush to remove all the knots. The hair should be slightly damp, without excess. Indeed, the hair expands when is wet and contracts when it dries. This will avoid too much stress on the scalp when it comes to fixing everything.

3 – Separate the hair.

Start with a strand of hair on the front, where you want to start the first braid. Put aside hair that you do not braid in two mats, so that they do not interfere. Separate the other hair well so you can follow your line. Finally, take a small section of hair. Do not take too much, especially near the hairline, to avoid having to pull too hard thereafter.
Feel free to moisturize the first strand with cream.

3 – Start the braiding session.

Put aside the two outer strands of the wick, go down under this initial braid to add a little hair to the middle strand. Link this new hair to this one so that they are part of it. Make a braid stitch with these strands. Continue to weave, each time adding a little more hair to the middle wick and repeat until you no longer have to add. If you have reached the end and there is still hair, continue with a regular braid with 3 mats.

4 – Secure the braid. You can use a snap bead, a hair clip or a bar, as long as you can remove it later.
Elastics are not recommended, except those specially designed for hair. Others may damage them.

5 – Start the next braid.

Loosen a section of hair next to the first section. Make sure it is the same size as this one. Moisturize it, then start braiding with two points. Braid to the end, then secure.
