What is Hair Braiding.          Hair Braiding is the interweaving of strands of hair to form a rope for Single Plaits; interweaving of strands of hair on a pre-determined track for Cornrows; and intertwining of strands of hair for Twist. Braids can be done on all hair types. Braids are healthy when done on a healthy head of client’s natural hair but can be damaging when used on someone whose hair is already damaged. Braids should not be held tight on the client’s scalp as this leads to traction alopecia but they should be held firmly so they don’t drop off from the client’s head.
What makes a difference between types of braids varies from how a braid is sectioned or divided ready for the strands and the hair extensions type used on the braids.
For the Jumbo braids, what you need is a medium sized section of client’s hair braided with a large size of kanekalon or synthetic hair extensions. The more extensions you add to the strands the larger your hair strand will look and the better the strand of jumbo braids you will have. This style is currently very popular at the moment as it has been made glamorous by Solange Knowles.


Type of hair extensions:        Can be done with 100% Kanekalon /synthetic quality hair extensions. Some of the quality brands include: Xpressions, Nina, Outre etc as they look pretty and last long. It is best if the hair extensions are treated into a technique we call “feather tips”.

Uniqueness of this Hair Extension type:        The benefit of the kanekalon hair extensions type is that it creates very good feather tips in the hair extensions which becomes lighter for the client to wear as against the general notion that this type of hair heavy. This hair extensions type can be shampooed frequently without losing its shine/ lustre; can be used for swimming easily without getting tangled; hair dries naturally without heat, hair is sealed with hot water; hair texture can be changed easily into wavy, curly, crimpy, straight or unlimited styling options.
Client’s Hair type:       Virgin Afro hair, Relaxed/chemically processed afro hair, Caucasian hair.
Benefit of hair style: Full volume for fine hair, easy care and styling for virgin afro hair. Better than damaging your hair with chemical treatments.
Caution** Do not use on clients with damaged thinning chemically processed hair as extensions is too heavy for client’s hair and can lead to more hair damage.

Time to put in:       Takes between 6 – 10 hours to do depending on how many stylists are working on the hair, how long the extensions is and how tightly packed the style is created.
