How To: Cornrow Braidout on Natural Hair
Start on freshly washed hair. Part hair into two sections and pin one section out of the way.
1
Add products to the first section, starting with Creme of Nature Pure Honey Moisture Whip Twisting Creme.
2
Comb the product through, then add your Gel. Here I used Eco Styler Black Castor and Flax Seed Oil.
3
Part section for first braid. You will have 3-4 sections on each half depending on the thickness of your hair. try to make equally sized sections.
4
Start with a very small section of hair to begin braiding. Add more hair to each of the three braid sections as you move down the braid.
5
When you reach the base of your head and have no more hair to add, briefly finger detangle the hair & continue braiding to the end.
6
Move on to the next section. Start with parting.
7
The with small amount of hair and continue adding hair to the braid until you have no more hair to add.
8
Finger Detangle, then braid to the end. you may switch to 2 strand twists at the very end. This will give your ends more rounded curls vs. zig zag.
9
Repeat on the next section of your hair.
10
Continue this process on the other half of your hair. In all I had six cornrow braids.
11
Using the gel, lay down your edges. then tie satin or silk scarf on your head. I typically leave this on overnight and take down in the morning.
12
Now for the moment of truth. Take your scarf down. Put some oil on your fingers to help avoid creating frizz in your hair while removing the braids.
13
Begin unraveling the braid. Because you did a corn row vs. regular braid it is already perfectly sectioned and does not require additional separation.
14
Continue this same process with the rest of your hair. add more oil to fingers as necessary.
15
Fluff and style your hair and admire your work.
