Braids are a popular style for men and women. They can be done in simple plaits or in a French braid style also referred to as cornrows. Both ways allow the hair to be put up and out the way, so it is ideal if you engage in sports or activities with a lot of movement. White men have fine hair; so, they may need to use some products to prevent pieces that may split off and out of the braid.
Mist the hair with a water spray bottle until the hair is damp. Comb through the hair to remove all knots.
Add a little of the hair protein wax, smoothing it through the hair.
Use a comb and part the hair into sections. Determine where you want the braids. Draw a picture, if necessary. Clip off any areas not being braided, so they do not get mixed in.
Gather at the top of the braid a small section of hair and divide it into three pieces. Cross the left piece over the center piece.
Cross the right piece of hair section over the center piece. Add a small section of hair from the left side and add it to the left piece. Now, take this new bigger section and cross it over the center section.
Continue adding small sections of hair to the side sections and crossing them over the middle section as you work your way down the scalp. Be sure to tighten the braid by pulling the stands as you work your way down.
At the nape of the neck, continue braiding the cornrow by just crossing the left and right sections over the middle, but no longer adding any additional hair. Braid it to the ends and then fasten it with an elastic or clip.
