How To Do Patra Braids Tutorial Supplies Part 1
To do your Patra Braids Extensions you want to make sure that the hair you buy can be used to do french braids.
Use hair that you would use for long box braids.
Patra Braid Extensions are individual braids with weave and they favor box braids or single braids but they are about double the size of a poetic justice braid.
You can use whatever hair you want, sometimes I like to use silky straight hair and other times, I want it to look really full and kinky so it's your preference.
Use your regular braiding synthetic hair to achieve the results I achieved.
Follow along with the products that I have listed above to achieve the appropriate results of your Patra "Box Braid" Extensions.

When braiding on natural hair, you always want to be extremely gentle with your hair.
If you are not careful with your hair, that will reflect in the health of your hair.
Too much rough handling on your tresses will result in split damaged ends and hair loss which in the long run stunt the growth of your hair.
Wearing a protective style like this Patra Braids Extensions Hairstyle is great in retaining length but if you always comb aggressively or handle your hair in a rough manner, many of your hair saving methods will go to waste.
Also, remember when that you do Patra Braids you can make your braids as long as you want.
The ultimate look of a style is to your discretion.
Long Big Jumbo Patra Braids Tutorial Tip, Trick, and Advice Part 3
When braiding your Patra Braids/Poetic Justice Braids Hair extensions, make sure to take your time!
I know it's fun and even if you know what you are doing, you want to be careful with the way that you handle the hair on your head.
Be careful that when you braid your hair that it isnt to tight.
Your extensions should feel snug with only a slight pull, if you feel uncomfortable, have headaches or pain, that is your scalp letting you know that the tension is unbearable.
Braiding the hair too tight does help the style last for a little bit longer but it also encourages hair loss which no one wants!
You can reduce this greatly by braiding at a tightness that is comfortable for you.
So many times, I used to braid my hair too tight just to make it "last longer" and I would be hurting myself in the end.
Take your time and stick to what you know works for you and keep working and practicing as your do your Patra Braids!
How To Seal The Ends of Your Patra Braids Tutorial Part 4
As you are finish braiding your hair for your Patra Braids Hairstyle, next you will be sealing the ends of your hair.
Usually the hair that you use to achieve this twist style is synthetic so it is not best advice to use your curlers or a curling wand to curl the ends of your Patra Braids extensions.
Adding heat from a curling iron can potientially melt the extensions or the curl from the curling iron may not give you your best curl result for this style.
It is best to simply dip the ends of the Patra Braids in hot water.
Be careful and avoid dripping hot water on yourself and avoid burning your scalp with hot.
Once you thoroughly dry off the twist, run your fingers through the braids and to trim away any flimsy ends.

How To Take Down Your Patra Braids Properly Yourself Tutorial Part 7
Now it's time to take down or uninstall your Patra Braids.
If you would rather sport your hairstyle for another couple of days or even weeks feel free but remember to take care of your hair.
When I wear any type of hairstyle, it is a MUST that I add moisture to my hair at least once a week.
I use my spray bottle concoction to add moisture to my hair.
Remember to release your braids out of a pinned style at least once a week to add some moisture to your hair.
If your hair requires less moisture, thats fine.
Do to your hair what your hair needs because if you let conditions worsen, your hair ends up paying for it.
When taking down your patra braids all you have to do is unravel them from the bottom and work your way up.
Sometimes I like to cut of the very bottom of the braids because the ends can become extremely interlocked which makes it hard to take them down.
If you are sure or unsure as to whether or not where your hair ends along the braids, take them down with your hands until you are comfortable with cutting the ends to speed up the process.
Its really easy and simple and once you get the technique down, you will be addicted to the ease of this style!
