What is Hair Braiding.

Braiding hair is an ancient art that has been passed down from generation to generation. Hair braiding was first mentioned in the ancient Chinese book, The Classic of Mountains and Seas (Zhuangzi), in the 6th century BC.
There are many different ways to do hair braiding, but the most common way is to use a net. A net is a type of fabric that is used to hold the hair in place while you braid it.
The Procedure for Braiding Hair.

You will need:

1) A piece of cloth about 4 feet by 2 feet by 1 inch or large enough to cover your head
2) A small amount of oil or cooking spray
3) a bowl or pan with water and standing water or a sink with cold water cool enough to work with
4) Two strands of hair
5) Your hands
The First Step.
Take your cloth and spread it out in a large enough area. Pour a small amount of oil or cooking spray onto the cloth, and then use your hands to do a good job of rubbing it into the hair. You can also use a comb or brush to help distribute the oil or spray evenly. If you have long hair, try to take care not to get any of the hair in between your braids.
Once you’ve applied enough oil or cooking spray, put one strand of hair into the center of the cloth and hold on with both hands. Twist the head of the hair around the outside of the fabric, so that it bobs up and down (Figure 1). Do this until all of your hair is braided (Figure 2).

How to Braiding Hair

When braiding hair for a new look, it is important to follow certain basic hairdressing principles. One such principle is using sections rather than coils (or groups of curls), which will result in smoother and more even distribution of heat across the scalp. Additionally, avoid using too much heat on the scalp at once – this can cause frizz and fly aways. Be sure to test out each braiding technique before committing it to a full head of hair.
