Prepare Your Hair
Use a wide-toothed comb or brush to thoroughly smooth remove all tangles. Brush all of your hair backwards away from your forehead.
Take a Large Section
Take a large, 3-4 inch wide section of hair from the top center of your head. If you have bangs, and want to include them in your braid, you need to start your braid at the very top and center part of your head. If you don’t exclude them from your section.
Divide Your Section
Separate the section into three equal strands by running your fingers through the chunk. Make sure that none of the pieces is significantly larger than the others.
Begin braiding the three sub-sections of hair into in a standard braid for 2-4 inches.
Include Loose Hair
Then began incorporating new pieces of hair. Before you cross an outside strand over to the other side, grab additional, small section of hair from the loose pieces on the same side and include it in the cross-over. Now, every time you cross-over grab another small piece of hair.
Finish The Braid
By the nape of your neck all of your hair has should be incorporated added into the braid. Once all of the free-hanging strands are gone, continue braiding a standard braid until you reach the end of your length and secure with a rubber band.
