How to
braid hair using hair extensions

There are some of
the gorgeous braids to wear and look amazing with the extended version of your
hair. All kinds of extended hair braids require a steady hand and a practiced
way of doing it. Many women wish to get the hair braiding done through extensions
as they wish that their hair look longer and beautiful.

If you wish to
make the braid hair using hair extensions, here are the steps to do the same:

1) Buy the right hair extension

You should have
researched well before purchasing the hair. Make sure that you buy good quality
extensions to achieve the right look. The curly view of the hair will give
better grip to them. They will style for a long time and remain attached to
your natural hair without any chances of getting detached.

2) Prepare well before adding extensions

You must wash and
deep condition the natural hair before beginning the braiding. The deep
conditioning will protect your hair as they will remain tied for the several
weeks. Don’t miss out conditioning as it will help your hair to look better.

Also, if the
extensions you’ve purchased are human hair, rinse them beforehand and dry them
perfectly. Follow the instructions given on the pack beforehand and pull the
strands apart as the hair dries. It will help you to make the work easier to grab
right amount to be fixed to the natural hair.

It is feasible to
blow dry your hair, but you need to make sure that you are applying serum or
protective product before blow drying. Remember, the major goal is to make the
hair healthy and include the right braiding process to make the strands strong
enough for withstanding the stress and pulling.

3) Section the dry hair

There should be
3-4 large sections created by partitioning the hair from ear to ear or forehead
to nape or forehead to crown. The sections should be secured by covering them
with the large clips and elastic bands.

Now, move towards
the nape of the neck for dividing the locks into smaller sections. It will
prevent confusion and tangling of hair. The small sections can be ¼ to
1 inch wide (as per the hair length, texture and styling) and each of them will
be a braid. Micro braids are made for the smaller sections.

4) Attach hair extensions and continue

If you’re working
a braid, pinch off sufficient extension hair for matching the size of the
section of the natural hair for braiding. There should be appropriate extension
hair taken as too much can make your braids bulky and lesser will create lumps
and unevenness.

The extension
hair can be folded with the natural hair and hooked over the top of the section
of hair to be braided. Make sure that you hold the hair taut and bring it
closer to the scalp. The hair sections should be lined up in this way:

Shorter end of
the hair extensions on the left side

Natural hair in
the mid area

Long extensions
ends on the right side

Excessive tight,
pulling of hair might cause pain in the hair and makes the head tired. Continue
crossing the hair sections and apply the strokes till the extension becomes
tight and secured. The micro braids require slipknot for securing the braid and
tightening its effect. Keep braiding till you reach the end of the hair

After doing it,
you can trim, style or do anything you want with the braids. Enjoy your look
and make sure that you take care of your hair after getting hair extensions on
the braids. You can even use hair accessories to make different patterns
appealing your hair. Treat your hair in the way you want and stay happy with
your appearance. Artificial hair extensions are available with DIY kits and you
can buy them to fulfill all your fashion related fantasies.
