Braids For Children's Styles

Breanna Rutter


Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of one of my most popular books that natural hair Bible and founder of this video is because of an email that Trina sent Trina sent me an email saying that she has been putting braids in her daughter's hair for a while and it's getting kind of boring she is running short on ideas she wants me to give her some suggestions as far as some different kinds of braids she can do on her hair so thank you Trina for your email and of course I am going to suggest some things that you can do to switch up the look to add a little bit more creativity to your daughters hairstyles the very first thing I'm going to suggest is that you try box braids on her hair now box braids can be done on one or two ways you can either just prayed individual braids away from her scalp without extensions or you can braids individual braids away from her scalp with extensions it just depends on look you're going for if you want to play with color more safely on her hair you can add a little bit of color to her braiding hair when you braiding more if you want to just write her own hair without extensions you can do just that is perfectly fine another style I'm going to suggest is micro braids now I don't suggest micro braids for really small children because the braids are so tiny and it requires a lot of patience to get through them most kids don't even sit still for 10 minutes some micro braids will be out of the question out of the equation when doing them on children's hair only I would say that it will work for you you know your child best you know that your child sit through such a long period of time to get micro braids done micro braids a really tiny are usually small in size of your pinky finger while box braids are usually bigger than the size of your pinky finger you want to make sure that when you braiding your daughter's hair that is as stretched as possible if it's natural to prevent a lot of combing and detangling as you are styling or if her hair is relaxed you should be able to easily part and section her hair and braid accordingly so you should know your daughters hair best in know under the circumstances if micro braids makes sense for her age and also for her level of patience and your level of patience and then my last style that I am going to suggest are Ghana braids or actually goddess braids now goddess braids are done underhand which means that it looks as if the braid is underneath your hair if you are familiar with goddess braids and ghana braids are overhand because you can actually see the braid sitting on top of your hair rather than hidden underneath the hair now was Ghana braids they are also called feed in Conrow braids or just feed in braids because as you braiding you have pieces of extension hair along the way so they can actually increase size now the lot of.people prefer these over Conrow braids because for some people when they are doing Conrow braids especially with extensions they always seem to see the little lump in the front and a lot of don't like the look so some people actually opt for Ghana braids instead now you can't do Ghana braids on your hair without extensions because you have nothing to feed in and besides the braid it self you try to do a Ghana braid without extensions is just going to look like an overhand (correction) braid now goddess braids on the other hand can be done on your hair with and without extensions you can do without extensions if you prefer not to put extensions in your child's hair or you can with extensions because number one it helps to add length or color if you choose and number two actually preserves a style a lot more because you have weave helping to cover up some of the hairs you are braiding so it gets freezing less often when using weave versus not using weave or extensions so those are just some of the braids styles that I have to tell you there so many different braids you can do your daughters hair those are just only a couple and just pick one of those two get started with to switch up her look is always too you can go to my website to check out more great options if you still want more ideas but thanks Trina for your email and also I want to thank you all for watching this video as well and before any of you go make sure to sign up for my email list to enter into any giveaways that I do and also only there you can receive exclusive content so until then I'll see you are in my very next video
