Yaki hair, a synthetic hair type, can create wigs, weaves and hair extensions.
Yaki yaki hair can give finished styles a relatively natural look. However, how to braid yaki hair?
- Divide hair to be braided into manageable sections. Hold all sections. Use a hair clip or elastic band to secure one section. Apply hair moisturizer to the remaining section. Use a wide-toothed comb to comb it out.
- Separate a braid-sized portion of hair with the rat-tail comb, and clip back the rest of the section. Add a little gel to hair’s smaller piece.
- Remove yaki hair from its packaging. Spray oil sheen on the synthetic hair. Use your hands to smooth it. However, for more voluminous braids, you can also brush it out with a flat brush.
- Pick up a piece of yaki hair which is the intended size of your braid. You need to tug at each end of the strand to make the ends less blunt if the hair you are using is straight.
- Drape the piece of hair over the portion of hair you separated. Now, there are two halves of the hair and the strand of human hair for braiding.
- Braid the three strands of hair, starting with the human hair to one side and the two strands of hair to the other.
- Split one of the hair strands in half and blend it with the human hair when you start running out of human hair to braid with. Keep this process until you reach the desired length.
- Seal the end of your braid by burning, knotting, gluing or dipping in hot water.
