Cheap Micro Braiding hair
Before Getting Micro Braids
The decision to get micro braids is one that should not be taken lightly. Many people get these type of braids because they require little daily maintenance. However, individuals who get their hair micro braided should be prepared to wear this hairstyle for a long time; the process of getting the braids put in generally takes several hours, and getting the braids removed can take just as long. Very small braids can also be very damaging to hair and can cause extensive breakage. Women with dry, brittle hair should be especially cautious when getting these braids done as they can also cause hair loss, particularly when they are removed.
Before getting the braids done, it is important to find a professional hair hairstylist that specializes in the style. If you have African American hair, you will also want to find someone who specializes in black hair. Prior to making an appointment, schedule a consultation with the stylist. At this time your stylist can asses your hair, and make sure it is in proper condition for braiding and will tell you how long the braids should take. Expect braiding to take several hours at a minimum.
Prepare the Hair
Prior to getting braids, it's essential that the hair is as healthy as possible so that it has the least chance of becoming damaged.
- Either perform a hot oil treatment at home, or have a professional hair stylist do one so that the hair is as full of moisture as possible.
How to Micro Braid the Hair
Although micro braiding hair takes a long time, the process itself is fairly easy. The one difficulty that comes with micro braiding is that the braids themselves are so tiny that braiding an entire head of hair can take a long time.
- Section the hair with a comb, leaving 1/4 of hair down at the nape of the neck. Secure the rest of the hair with a clip.
- Take a tiny section of hair, about 1/8 of an inch in thickness and begin braiding the hair. Separate the hair and cross the strands left over center and right over center. Pull the braids tightly, but not so tight that they hurt your scalp.
- Continue braiding the hair all the way down. Secure the ends with braid sealer or tie off with a slip knot. Repeat until all of the hair on the nape of the neck is braided.
- Once this section of hair is complete, section off a new portion of hair, similar in width to your first portion and begin doing more individual braids.
