How to Braid Cornrows

Prepare Your Hair: Start with clean, detangled hair. You can wash and condition your hair to make it more manageable. If your hair is too slippery,

Section Your Hair: Use a rat-tail comb to part your hair into rows or sections. The size and direction of the sections will determine the style of your cornrows.

Begin Braiding: Start at the front of your head or the desired starting point for your cornrows. Take a small section of hair from the part you've made.

Incorporate Hair Gradually: As you start braiding, add small sections of hair from the row or section next to the one you're braiding. This is what creates the "cornrow" effect

Maintain Tension: Keep the braids tight but not too tight to avoid causing discomfort or damage to your scalp. Consistent tension is essential for neat and uniform cornrows.

Secure the Ends: Continue braiding until you reach the end of the row or section. Secure the braid with a small hair elastic or a rubber band. Trim any excess hair if needed.
