How to braid hair, and then sew hair tracks into braided roots？
Basic Cornrow Instruction
You can turn to a hair mannequin to practice your braiding technique.
Firstly, master an individual three-strand braid. Use a rat-tail comb to part hair vertically, starting from the front of the hair line moving to the back of the neck.
Make sure part is straight. Before starting the braiding process, your hair should be kept moisturized properly. Grab all three pieces of hair at the front of your hair to take complete control of their mobility.
Put your hands on the underneath the middle strand of hair, and then grab the hair at the front of the hair line to the left with your right index finger and grab the hair at the front of the hair line to the right with left index finger.
Hair that hangs past the back of the neck can use three-strand individual technique.
Braiding Techniques for Weaves
Properly section hair to lessen the mobility of your weave and significantly decrease the appearance of hair tracks. Visible hair tracks will make hair look artificial. Leave a certain amount of unbraided hair to hid tracks and blend well into your own hair.
After braiding, you can apply sew-in extensions by using beehive or straight-back techniques.
Beehive technique is that braid natural hair in a circular direction starting from the right outermost corner of hair line.
Straight back technology consists of the hair vertically and evenly separated.
Sew the loose ends of braids into the base of braids, eliminating their visibility.
Sew hair extensions horizontally from left to right. Tie a knot at the end of an extension. Add many layers of extensions.
Blend your own hair into the hair extensions. You can straighten your hair texture if your hair is thick. Make sure that your natural hair covers any sign of a hair extension by using a thin-tailed comb. Style your hair as you like.
