position your hands on your hair extensions I will also be showing you how to part your hair into sections and then how to braid your own micro braids before you begin braiding your micro braids you want to make sure that your hair has already been parted into a section to part my hair I will be using my water hair spray bottle to spritz my hair as it helps me to part my hair I will also be using a comb to part my hair and to be tangled through my hair as well the type of code that I like to use has 3 different sized in each size teeth and each side teeth serve for different purposes the teeth here on the left side of my column serve as your typical called the teeth here on the right side you use to help part your hair and even detangle your hair as well the teeth at the bottom of my comb serves as your typical pick so depending on what type of style you have you could fluff the roots of your hair for more of a voluminous look or you could simply use the pick at the end of the comfort detangling your hair I will be using the pick at the end and even the 2 teeth at the top of the current to help me as I am parting and sectioning my hair so first I will begin by grabbing my spray bottle and misting the section of hair that I will be parting for my micro braid now I will be taking my comb and I will part in extremely small square of hair on my head the section appear that you will be using for your zillion braid is an extremely small patch of hair that is the reason why they're called micro braids is because the braids are micro sized so the section I have parted off I could say that the measurement on both sides is probably a 4th of an inch you just want to part an extremely small piece of hair that you will be using for your micro braid extensions so now that part of my section appear I will use my calling to be detangle in my hair and then you want to apply hair gel on the ends of your hair to keep your hair slick within your braids now that you have parted your section of hair I will show you how to position your hands on your hair extensions now that you have parted your section of hair on your head for your micro braids I will show you how to actually hear your hair extensions and position your hands on your hair for your braiding process so the type of hair that I have here is extremely light-colored hair this hair is blonde in my hair is not the reason why I am using is blonde hair is so you can clearly see the distinction between the weave and my natural hair so that you can understand the braiding technique so I will be doing the same thing to this blonde hair that I would do with black hair as I am braiding my hair this is the hair after I have taken it out of the package and it's kind of long the length of this hair and vibrated the braids all the way down to the bottom it would fall almost at my waist so what you want to do is make sure you locate the middle of the section of hair and you want to cut the hair in half so the part that's in my head here you will be cutting in half with your scissors so that the length isn't too long if you would like your braids past your shoulders then leave the link length is but if you would like for the hair to fall a little bit past your shoulders go ahead and cut the hair and so for demonstration purposes I'm going to take off a little bit of the hair from this bundle to show you how much hair you need for your actual micro braid some just to mention a little bit off here and then I'm going to cut this piece of hair in half now this is how much hair you would actually need for your micro braid you could use a little bit more or extremely full braids or a little bit less if you want your race to be little bit this is about the size of hair that you will need for your micro braid so now you want to locate the middle of the hair here I'm going to bring both sides to one side just to show you and then you're simply going to divide this hair into 2 parts but when you divide this hair into 2 parts you want to pinch it off with a 3rd and then two thirds in your other hand now I have a 3rd of the hair my right hand and two thirds of the hair in my left hand and I've made sure that both sides are equal in length so now what you want to do is take your small piece of hair your 3rd and wrap it around the two thirds then bring both ends back together so now the sections are divided equally into 3 parts the fact that this part here was two thirds and this part of my hand he was one 3rd when I brought the piece back together this divided everything up into 3 equal parts you want to make sure that your hair is consistently in 3 parts so that your braids look very uniform so now to position your hands on your hair you want to take your left hand you want to insert your index finger through the middle of that two thirds piece of hair that we broke up and so in the middle goes your next finger in your middle finger and your time goes around the hair to hold the hair in your hands so once again I'm going to show you index fingers through the middle you’re in your middle finger on the outside and you just to use the rest of your hands to hold the hair in your hands so once again I am going to show you so now for your right hand you’re going to take your 3 main figures of your hand your time thumb and middle finger and you are going to hold it position it around this hair here so I am just going to go ahead grab the hair and insert all 3 of my fingers like this and you want to make sure that your hands are position as close to this point as possible so now that your hands position the last and crucial step for positioning your hands for your micro braids you are going to take your right hand that has your 3 main fingers you're going to twirl it underneath and then you want to stick your index finger through the opening of the hair that's in your left hand so the index finger goes through so with your index finger and your thumb you are going to mention that hair that's in between those 2 fingers and now I can release my right hand so at this point this is where you will start actually braiding your hair you will only start with your right hand to grab all of your hair as you are braiding so now that I've shown you how to prepare the hair on your head for your braids and also how to prepare your hands on your extensions I'll be showing you how to braid your micro braid so first I will begin by going over the hair once again how you want to position your hand so I break the 3rd often the two thirds wrap the 3rd a round two thirds to bring that third back together again and there's my 3 equal parts so now my left hand the index finger goes to the opening of the two thirds the rest of my hands go around and then my right hand the 3 main figures are positioned on the hair now you are going to turn your right hand under insert your index finger through the opening that's there your right hand excuse me your left hand so insert your index finger in the hair that's in between your index finger now and your thumb you pinch together now you can release your left hand in the hair is in your right hand and you can begin braiding so the reason why I have this blonde hair is so that as I am braiding my hair you can clearly see the distinction between the different parts of the weave and also how I incorporated into my micro braid so to begin here we have a part here on our head it's already been detangled and sectioned and hair gel has been applied so now at this point you have your right hand here and you want to take your left hand and put it over your head to help you as you are braiding your hair now all of the hair left on my part will be added to the middle layer that’s in between my index finger in my so this piece of hair here is what will be connected to my real hair so now what you will do with your left hand is take all of the hair that's on your scalp gather together and you are going to open up your index finger and your thumb to grab the hair so once again I'll show you exactly what happened so the hair is in my right hand and I will be opening up my index finger and my thumb to grab all the hair that's on my scalp so my left hand to gather all of the hair and on the go ahead open my index finger and my thumb and grab all the hair that’s so now that I've grabbed all the hair me to take my left hand again over my head and on the grab the section of hair here and pull it over to the side as I pull into the side I'm going to rotate my right hand to the rights and create a little opening here in between my index finger and my index finger and also my ring finger so now i am going to take my index finger of my left hand and I'm going to go in and hook this bottom piece of hair here to add to my left hand so I am gonna go ahead and hook that and I've connected to the left and now my right hand is free so now my right hand again with my 3 main fingers I'm going to grab my real hair and the extension hair into my fingers there and position everything in place once more so now that my left hand has two strands of hair my left hand is going to rotate to the left to create an opening here between us opening i insert my index finger and I hope this bottom piece of hair to add to my right hand the hair still broken up into 3 parts even when I added to my hand so now my left hands free again with this piece of hair there in my right hand has to strands of hair every time one of your hand has two strands of hair you rotate that hand is my right hand now has two strands of hair the right hand is rotated to the right but it's my left hand had two strands of hair it would get rotated to the left amount so now I am going to grab this hair here put it over to the side and also rotate my right hand to the right then to create that opening their is that opening is created I take my index finger of my left hand and I hook the bottom piece of hair to add to my left hand in the process continues rotate my left hand to the left insert my index finger to the bottom piece of hair and now my left hand is free grab this piece of hair again rotate my right hand to the right insert my index finger and grab that bottom piece of hair here and now I am forming my braid you only need to do this about 3 to 4 times maybe even 5 times and then you can actually just continue to braid all the way down to the bottom so since my arm is a little bit uncomfortable because it's wrapped around my head I like to release to make sure that the braid is still holding onto my hair and then I'm just going to grab each of the 3 pieces with my hands and then I'm just going to continue to braid to the bottom you are just going to continue to braid all the way down and sometimes one of the ends are a little shorter than the others you can see the there it’s a little bit shorter than the rest of the hair you are just going to continue to break down the to you can’t go any longer and then you can even borrow the hair from one of the sites to add to the section so this middle section seems to be long distances, pinch a little bit of hair off there to add to the short and then I can continue braiding to the bottom so every time one of the sides give short like I see the side here is getting shorter I could pinch off a little piece of hair to add to that side so that it can become a little bit longer and more even with the rest of the pieces so now you finish braiding your micro braid you want to make sure that you snip off any pieces of hairs that stick outside of your braid so as you go down your hair you notice that there is little bits of pieces of hair that sticks out now sometimes is to simply come from shorter sides of your braid that start to run out and you start to see these frayed ends what you want to do is take your scissors and simply snipped off the hairs on the edges of the braid this helps your braid to look a lot more neater so that when you're finish your braids are not fuzzy now that you have done your first micro braid I will show you a 2nd time once again how to do your micro braid for example I'm showing you with blonde hair so you can clearly see the braiding technique and process so remember in between your index finger and your thumb you will be grabbing your real hair and it will be connected to the strand here so now to begin to gather all of my hair here for my section with my left hand and I'm going to open my index finger in my thumb to grab all of my real hair so once you've gathered all of the hair you are going to take your left hand grab the blonde hair here I'm going to move this over to the side and rotate my right hand since it has two strands of hair rotate my right hand to the right and create a little opening there and then take the next hair of my left hand hook this bottom piece of blonde hair and connected with my left so now my right hand is free and my left hand has two strands of hair down to take my 3 main fingers of my right hand grab my real hair with that strand of hair there and then my left hand is going to get rotated to the left once I rotated to the left I create a little opening here going to hook my index finger on that bottom strands to connect that back to my right hand and now my left hand is free once again so I moved the left hair out of the way with my left hand and I take my right hands is asked to strands in rotated to the right grab my index finger to get into this bottom piece of blonde hair to add to my left hand once again rotate left him to the left this opening here grab it with my index finger and now my left hand is free again and i take my right hand has to strands of hair every time one of your hand is holy to strands of hair you have to rotate that hand to turn so since my right hand has two strands of hair I turn my right hand to the right to create a little opening their take my index finger and I hook that small piece and you will continue this process about 3 to 4 to even 5 times until the braid is snug onto your head you can keep doing this until you go comfortably down on the hair as you can before you release once I release the braid should stay in if it doesn't stay I should break down further than I once I let go the braid should be in tact as you see there the reason I let go is because I honestly cannot continue to braid all laid out with my hand over my head so I release and take both my fingers of my hands and then I position my hands back on those 3 sections of hair that I have and then I just continue braiding all the way to the bottom so as you are learning how to braid you're probably going to move at a very slow speed like this I've been braiding my hair ever since I was 12 to 11 years old so I could go extremely fast but I am doing the same motion that anyone else is doing I am rotating the piece of hairs continuing to break down as you get more comfortable with braiding you can go a lot faster now remember if you have any hairs to stick out of your braids make sure to use your comments to snip off the hairs but if your real hair sticks out of your braids use hair gel to slick your hair down to your braids and that I have shown you how to part in section your hair for your brain also shown you how to position your hand on your extensions and braid your own micro braid in
