Braiding Your Hair

  • Detangling your hair makes braiding simpler and provides better results. Wet hair may be easily broken, so be careful while combing it.
  • Part your hair down the center and knot each side into a ponytail. Use an elastic band to secure each ponytail. Make four to six ponytails for tighter curls. For loose curls, a single ponytail may be created. 
  • To convert a ponytail into a braid, divide it into 3 parts. Maintain a tight grip on each part and, starting at the head, move outward. Cross the right part over the center area, followed by the left section over the middle part, and so on until you reach the end. Tie an elastic band to the end of each braid.
  • Alternatively, you can make buns out of the ponytails rather than braiding them. To get tight curls, braid your hair as before, then wrap it into more buns.
  • Give your braids at least four to five hours to dry completely. You may either let your braids dry overnight. When your hair is completely dry, remove the ties from the elastic bands, carefully untie your braids, and give your curls a good shake.
  • The thickness of your hair will determine how long you have to wait for your braids to become tight.

  • Although hair rollers might be more difficult to use, they are a dependable and time-taking technique for curling hair. Use wet-set rollers since certain rollers are not designed for wet hair. Rollers are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, according to the various sizes and shapes of curls, so you may need to try a few before you find your choice. Simply check the package to verify they are suitable for wet hair.
  • Select soft rollers if you want to keep them in your hair overnight. As an alternative to utilizing rollers during the day, allowing your curls to set while you sleep is a good option.
  • Detangle your hair with a wide-toothed comb to get neater curls. Especially if you’re using foam rollers, your hair should be moist.
  • Take a strand of hair, about the width of the roller, from just above your forehead. Hold this hair in front of you and place the roller vertically at its end. Roll your hair till it reaches your scalp, or as far as you like the curls to extend, then secure the roller. Repeat across the crown of the head, and then go on to the sides and back.
  • Try rolling the hair on your sides over for bouncy curls or under for volume.
  • The rear may be rolled horizontally, like the other portions, or vertically to create a nice look.
  • Allow your curls to set overnight or for a minimum of 4 to 5 hours. It is a terrific idea to sleep with the hair rollers in, you will look silly wearing them during the day. Sleeping on softer rollers, such as ones made of silicone or foam, will be more comfortable.
  • Once your hair is dry, detach the rollers and remove them carefully. Use your fingers to fan or puff up your curls as a final touch.
