Box Braids Extended #2

Part #2 :) 

Here we are using black hair.
            In this part i want  to show you another version of Box Braids.
            Now I'm using hair to Extend braids.
           So everything is almost same like in my previous post.

            Every time before I start to braid a hair, first I'm making picture in my head, or I'm drawing, so when I have a picture of what I want to do, it's easier for me, from where to start, and where to go, and how big section of hair should I make on the scalp, even do, more often that's client wish.
             However, when both sides deside what to do, you can start. And part by part, section by section, depends of your wish and choise, after 4- 10 hours you are done.

And here we are using blond and light brown, and we made them like we have ombre :) 

         Shortly , you have to wash your hair really good and than give her a good conditioner,a lot, and after you dry you hair you can start braiding.
         Now I separate the hair and I'm starting with braiding. 
         Here when I start a braid I'm placing hair extensions, I'm not making knot, I'm just placing hair extension and braiding as long as you want. 
        When you finish with braiding you can tight them with elastic, or, you cat put ends of the braids in boiling water shortly and then just leave them, they will not unbraid by them self, for sure :)  

Here on this picture we have example how it looks after three mounts

       I hope you like it. Please write me if  you have any question. Thank you.

Sincerely Yours Tatjana

Box Braids Extended

I will show you how I'm doing this beautiful braids. For me this is the best way. I can do it even on a short hair. Now, for me this is easy, a guess because I know how to do them, but don’t worry, just follow me, I will show you everything what you need to know about them. 
First, you need to give to your hair good washing and good conditioner, since your box braids are more permanent you’ll want to make sure your hair has a lot of moisture. Don’t worry, since your braids are done, you can wash them, but for now make sure you give your hair a good washing . 
Then dry your hair, prepare your  extension and you can start
Now, I just to start braiding from the bottom to the top, for me it’s easier  because at all the time I can see where I am and what I have to do next. So here we go. 

Now here we have to start. So you all know that a braid is a complex structure or pattern formed by interlacing three or more strands of flexible material such as textile yarns, wire, or hair. In this case we are using yarns.

Here we have our first braid and this is how it looks like.
Here we have our first row, and as you can see we are mixing three different colors, white, gray and black, and later on, just in few braids we are going to place it one more color, indigo (that depends of our client wish).

Here we are almost done, and you can see it now all four colors on the braids. And here i would like to tell you about finishing this braids, in the end we are making tight knot and cutting the rest. On this braids, there is no poent to use elastics, that's why I'm making tight knot.
And we continue… and taa daa    J    we are done,
 after 10 hours, hard work, we are done.

I hope you like my short version of my way of this beautiful Box Braids. If you have any questions, please leave me a comment.

Sincerely Yours Tatjana
