Thank you for following my posts! Today I braided my hair in a French braid, using the 3-D box braid braiding pattern. Basically you take four strands of hair:
Outermost 4 goes underneath 3, underneath 2, then flips up and over 2 to be placed in the middle of 2 and 3. So now your strands look like this:
You repeat the same pattern starting on the opposite side. So take strand 1, move it underneath 2, underneath 4, flip it up and over 4 so that it is now between 4 and 2.
Now to start French braiding, just add a little bit of hair to the outermost section before repeating the pattern. I keep it straight by thinking, "Under, under, over...under, under, over..."
I hope this explanation is helpful, now for pictures of my braid :-)
