FAQ: How To Braid Own Hair?

Is it hard to braid your own hair?

As practical and pretty as this type of hairstyle can be, it’s not always easy to braid your own hair. The angles are tricky, the sections get jumbled, and sometimes big pieces start to fall out. But with a little bit of practice, braiding your own hair can become second nature. This makes it much easier to braid.

Do you braid wet or dry?

“ Don’t braid your hair wet because it will be too heavy,” says stylist Kayley Pak of John Barrett Salon. “When your hair is wet, it extends at least 15 times more than when it is dry. You don’t want to weaken or break your hair.”

Is it OK to braid wet hair?

Is it bad to braid wet hair? No! Just allow your hair to dry a bit before brushing and braiding it. It’s best to work with damp hair for this wet hairstyling option.

Should you braid your hair before bed?

One benefit to braiding your hair before bed is that it can keep your strands structured while you sleep. Silk pillowcases — such as this one from Slip — can not only help keep your hair intact, they can help prevent breakage and are so gentle that your hairstyle will last throughout the night.
