'How To Braid' Feed In Extensions - Tips | Milk & Honey
What is Braid Hair?
Simply put, they are extensions of synthetic hair you include in your braids by simply adding them into your natural hair. They come in a variety of options, allowing you to find the one that will work best with your current hair colour and style goal.
Tips for 'Feed In Braids'
- Don't braid the hair too close to your hairline. This will cause excess pulling on your edges, and with the extra weight of the braiding hair added to that tightness, you may end up losing your own hair! Start about a half inch away from your hairline, and use conditioning products and edge control to keep your look sleek.
- Practice makes perfect. Even if you've been braiding for a while, working with feed in braids takes time to master. Don't expect to rival the experts on the first attempt. Remember, there's a reason professionals charge what they do—these things take time and skill!
- Work with colourful hair when first learning this technique. Not only is it fun to take a flamboyant first step, it will also make it easier to see the different sections of hair so you get a better braid.
- When sectioning out the hair pieces, make sure you start with smaller braids and sections at your forehead and crown and then gradually work your way to thicker pieces on the way to the back of your head to ensure you get a natural looking result.
- Make sure the legs of the braid stay even throughout to ensure the most proportionate outcome. If you find one leg is getting smaller than the others as you reach the bottom, simply readjust the legs by 'borrowing' from a longer strand to fix this issue.
