How to micro braid your hair?

Everyone loves their hair. They want the best for them and want to have the hairstyle which will look the best. Micro braid is one hairstyle which will definitely suit everybody. It will enhance your looks and will cater to your needs of hair growth. It will also help to strengthen your hair. However, having it done by a professional can be very costly but you need not worry as here we have a perfect guide to help you micro braid your hair.

The steps

Wash your hair The first and foremost thing is to ensure that your hair is clean. You need to wash your hair with a nice shampoo and you should think about conditioning them as well before you begin the process. Conditioning the hair will make them ready to undertake the stress which might be caused to your hair and will prevent excessive drying of hair. Start with the back Starting with the back can be beneficial and will ensure that you do not get stuck up with different braids. You now need to use a comb to make a partition to get your first row. Do not mix up the row with the rest of the hair and you can use a band or a clip to prevent them from interrupting. Take a small section from the first row and hold it tight leaving the rest hanging. Add these to the bulk extension(synthetic hair) and make sure that this amount is more than the amount you parted in the previous step. Holding one extension, pinch off another extension and take it around the first. This is the cross loop method. Keep following the procedure until you reach the end of the hair. After completing one braid, tie a knot to the two extensions of the braid. You can also use different glues available to do this job. Keep doing it until you are completed with the rest of the hair

Precautions and warnings

- You need to make sure that your hair are dry before beginning the process. - You should not micro braid your hair if they are weak as they might further damage your hair growth. - Do not be too hasty and braid your hair patiently to get desired braided styles. - Look for a few braids pictures or hair braiding pictures before taking up the job.
