HISTORY OF BRAIDS
The origin of braids can be traced back to 5000 years in Africa. In ancient times braids were used to separate tribes and were also an indication of wealth. Braids in the hair culture is a pattern created with strands of hair. The most common version is the three strand braid, twists are also very popular and is done using only two strands. Braids can contain multiple strands and be done with any type of material.
HOW LONG DOES YOUR HAIR NEED TO BE?
Two to three inches is the best length to do simple braids, singles or designs. The process mainly depends on your hair type. If your hair is curly or coiled, the hair is stretched for it to be easier to manipulate and lay down. During the process, gel is applied on the root of the hair and brushed to flatten the section, making designs and patterns more define and creates a beautiful finished look.
