What is Braiding?
Braid or plait is a structure of hair that is made by weaving three or more strands of hair together. The easiest braid style is created by weaving three groups of hair strands together to form a stronger rope of hair. You can achieve different styles of braids by combining fewer or more groups of hair strands, such as the technique used to complete Kinky twists or Senegalese twists.

Things To Do BEFORE Your Braided Style
Resolve Pre-existing Issues: If your hair seems to have a lot of breakage, is very dry and weak, using a protein treatment may be a good option for you. Protein adds extra strength to your hair. Strong hair is very important to have, especially when wearing braids.
Wash, Condition, and Moisturize Hair: Every good style needs moisturized, clean hair and scalp. Be sure to cleanse and moisturize your hair from root to tip prior to coming into the salon. Dirty and dry hair can become more damaged once braids are added to the mix.
Be Sure to Detangle: This will assist in making sure that your style comes out looking sharp. Tangled hair can become a hassle not only for the the stylist, but for you as well. Not to mention, it can also result in your style looking frizzy and unattractive.
