Festival season is a great time to experiment with new hairstyles, but some festivals (especially camping festivals) can leave your hair in rough shape. Braid hair extensions are the ultimate way to slay with style and flair. Whether you're a braid newbie or a seasoned pro, this guide will walk you through the steps to achieve flawless braided extensions.

Step 1: Prep Your Hair

Before we get started, it's crucial to prep your hair properly. Here’s how:

Comb: Start by gently combing out any tangles. Use a wide-tooth comb to avoid breakage.

Wash: Clean hair is a must! Use a sulfate-free shampoo to keep your hair healthy and shiny.

Moisturize: Hydration is key. Apply a leave-in conditioner or your favorite hair moisturizer to keep your strands soft and manageable.

Dry: Let your hair air dry or use a blow dryer on a cool setting. Your hair needs to be completely dry before you start braiding.

Step 2: Part Your Hair

Decide where you want your part to sit. Use a rat-tail comb for a clean, precise part. Whether you prefer a middle part, side part, or zigzag, make sure it's neat and even.

Step 3: Separate Braiding Hair Sections

Grab your braiding hair extensions and separate them into 7-8 equal sections per braid. This will ensure you have enough hair to work with and keep your braids looking uniform.

Step 4: Braid the First Section

Time to start braiding!

1. Start at the Root: Take a small section of your natural hair and divide it into three equal parts. Position your braiding hair extension over your natural hair section, aligning it with the middle piece.

2. Begin Braiding: Start a regular three-strand braid, integrating the extension hair with your natural hair.

3. Tight and Secure: Keep the braid tight and secure, but not too tight to avoid pulling on your scalp.

Step 5: Add Sections Every Half Inch

As you braid down, add a small section of braiding hair every half inch. This method ensures that the braid stays thick and consistent from root to tip. Continue this process until you reach the desired length.

Step 6: Finish the Braid with an Elastic

Once you’ve braided down to the end, secure it with a small elastic.
