If you know the ins and outs of of braiding, you can make an African cornrows. While twists or braids hang openly from their individual areas, cornrows stick to the scalp. In the first place, utilize the last part of the tail brush to make the size you need. Skinnier segments will bring about little cornrows, while bigger areas will yield greater cornrows. Here, an area is separated in front to make African cornrows braid style to the side.
Gap Hair Area into Three Sections for Twisting
At the hairline, partition the hair area into three identical parts as you would start any interlace. Start Twisting Little Area.
Start to twist the little area of hair at the hairline.
Include Hair as You Braid.
This is the part where an interlace transforms into a cornrow. As you keep on braiding the hair, include hair from the area you’re meshing into the cornrow. This is the thing that joins the interlace to the scalp. Each time you get one of the three bits of hair to mesh, delicately pull hair from the separated off a segment and include it in as you plait. Include hair equitably for a uniform look.
Keep Meshing and Adding Hair to the Cornrow
Keep on braiding the segment of hair, including more hair into the cornrow as you work your way toward the end.
Detangle Sections of Hair
In case you’re making cornrows with fixed or loose hair, you will not have to detangle as you plait. In any case, regular hair, as envisioned, should be detangled as you work your way down segments. Essentially and delicately pull your fingers through the hair to work your way through so the twists will keep on being slick and uniform.
It’s useful to have a splash bottle close-by loaded with water, a water/leave-in conditioner blend or a water/characteristic oil blend to help with detangling.
Once you’ve meshed the hair to the scalp, you’ll need to keep twisting if the hair is long. These twists won’t be connected to the head. So plait them as you would general meshes.
Repeat Around the Head
Here you can see a couple cornrows effectively completed and another area being set up for plaiting. Rehash the plaiting procedure the distance around the head, making a point to part segments a similar size.
This is a basic and essential African cornrow braid style. The parts are straight, and the size is uniform. It’s a decent style for kids, which can remain slick for up to 14 days as long as silk or glossy silk tops or scarves are set over the hair at evening time.

If you would prefer not to wear plain cornrows, you can include pig tail augmentations or an Afro puff expansion for an alternate look.
