French braids are very easy to make and need minimum materials. The things needed include a hairbrush, hairpins, rubber bands and long enough hair for making a French braid.
Brush the hair
First of all, brush the hair thoroughly so that they are tangle and knot-free. Avoid using comb because the hair will be charged and it will be difficult to braid the hair.
Take first Section
When the hairs have been brushed completely, grab a section of almost 2 inches of hair from the middle of the head. Brush it and separate it completely from the rest of the hair.
Divide into three sections
Now divide the section which was separated before into three equal parts. Let’s call these parts section A, section B and section C. For convenience, say the left most is A, middle one is B and right one is C.
To start the braid, first take section A and pull it over section B to bring it into the mid. Section B should be pulled to the left. Since loose braid looks untidy, the hair should be tightly pulled.
Now, bring section C into the middle by pulling over the section A. Along with section C, also pull half inches of hair from the front of the head and mix with section C. This will be the new section C which will be in the middle.
Repeat the steps
Repeat the above step by altering each section in the same pattern given above. Continue repeating the steps until the bottom of head is reached.
Continue as normal braid from the bottom of the end and when completed, tie the bottom with a rubber band. Use hair spray and hair pins if needed. Enjoy the beautiful and simple braid whole day 🙂
