How to Do African Hair Braiding Step By Step?

Prepare your first part. Use a tightly toothed comb to divide a part of your hair into the size you want. It should have a flat square shape. Apply a little gel or cream all over your hair, and spray with a little water and olive oil to reduce the twist and make it easier to shape. Use your comb to brush all over this part several times, to make sure that the hair is really smooth and tangle-free.

Start your first winding. Separate parts of your hair into two equal pieces. Start wrapping them tightly away from your head into a rope-like pattern; you will easily wrap tightly around the strands simultaneously coiling each other to create a coil. To keep it firm, you will pull the coil firmly to your scalp when you do it.

Complete your first coil. When you are near the end of the strand and begin to run out of hair to wrap around, you will need to replace it with a single strand to secure the tip. To do so, grab two strands and combine them together (there will not be much hair left to do). Then, wrap this part around your finger a few times, in the same direction as you wrap your two-strand of hair. This will curl the tip of the hair, securing it in place.
