We are all acquainted with the traditional way of securing braids… you know, the excellent ‘ol rubber band. But, at times a rubber band just is not the most visually pleasing closure and can even consider away from the elegance of the braid. When you have grown out roots like me, you do not need to have something else to distract from your fashion! I have 3 remedies for you that’ll update your braid and give you new strategies to practice.
Initial up is a approach I came across in a quick video on Instagram a although back and does not require any equipment or goods to do it. In the photo beneath, you can see a 2nd braid create beneath my hands as I braid the leading portion of my hair. When you segment out your 3 sections and start braiding, only separate the hair at the base of the part. By leaving the bottom of the segment intact, you will instantly generate the second braid at the bottom with out even trying. Once you run out of hair to braid you will flip the bottom of the braid by way of the hole in-amongst the best and bottom braid (feel topsy-tail).The completed search is really safe. You can also use this technique for a fishtail braid and virtually any size braid, no matter how thick or thin. It does, nonetheless, require longer hair in purchase for the bottom to get braided in.I discovered the next braid closure strategy from fellow CGH contributor Katie of Abellasbraids (thanks woman!!). Simply consider a teasing comb and aggressively back-comb at the finish of the braid to matte together the three sections (feel dread-lock). If you try out this back-combing technique on a huge braid you will end up with a chunky tangled mess. So, be certain to reserve this only for the skinny braids! It’s prefect for when you generate several skinny braids for the purpose of gathering them collectively into a larger large braid or ponytail. You won’t have unsightly elastic bands to contend with.I saved the best braid closure technique for last. For this 1 you will want a little elastic band, preferably one particular that matches your hair shade, and just a tiny bit of coordination on your part. Soon after you’ve completed the braid, leave out a small section of hair and secure the remaining hair with an elastic (see photo under).Next, soon after wrapping the small section about the elastic, get a piece of the elastic and spot it about the wrapped part. Soon after you have positioned the elastic about the small segment, you will most likely need to make some small adjustments to be confident that the elastic isn’t exhibiting. I’ve done these 3 tactics in the same spot on my head to have a simplified view for you. Even so, I hope you have enjoyable experimenting with these techniques and stepping up your braid game! Get pleasure from!
