    @alfalgebra Elastics are fine but depending on the texture of your hair it might stay on it's own.

    @CyberDame Nope. When it looks bushy it's time to take them our and re-do.

    @shaybabygirl92 NEVER braid tight. That's no good and why so many black people have no hairline.

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    @haitiplaya14 It's not supposed to hurt. Tell them to stop pulling so hard. You'll lose your hairline.

    @MrDevil609 I'd seek professional help. They have skilled fingers and can grab the shortest hair.

    @jawadalishe The minimum length is whatever you can handle.

    @nao1163 I think it would be fine if you used those small rubber bands and just tied them up. Or you can use bobby pins or mini banana clips.

    So essentially it's just like doing a lot of french braids? I always thought the hair had to be frizzed with a perm first or something. Thanks for this, I'm gonna try it!

    This is a great video! Wanted to know when you are doing the braid like everytime you pick up a new piece, that piece is the center piece right? and when you pick up that center piece up it goes over the left piece or right piece? i am going to start learnig to braid my own hair starting this year. Its apart of my new years "goals". I don't make resolutions.

    Long enough for you to work with.

    That length varies depending on who'd doing it and their skill level.

  • BlackBeautyTips

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    No, cornrows don't damage hair. Rough combing, brushing, lack of daily care and chemical abuse damage hair.

  • BlackBeautyTips

    You're welcome and good for you....you can do it on yourself too. Just keep practicing.

  • BlackBeautyTips

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    The best suggestion I can give you is to go slowly and each time you make a pass with the hair, draw your fingers all the way to the ends to separate the hair you're working with from the rest.

    It also helps to do the braids with less hair until you get better. Smaller ones are always easier to do.

    Doesn't cornrows damage your hair, well not damage, but you know when you braid your hair really small, when you take it out it becomes all frizzy and stuff, will that happen to cornrows or no?

    This is the best vid so far. But i need a view from your angle. I dont understand how to hold the hair in my hands. my fingers cramp up when i hold the hair. and im not sure if how exactly to add the hair. Should i be adding it to the middle peice? or the side one then bring it to the middle. I need like step by step SLOW instructions. with many diff angles to get this. Cuz it looks easy when u do it then i try and my fingers dont know where to go. Thanks!

    Hi. Explain a little more when you say you keep losing the hair.

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    You sure can, just keep practicing and you'll get it eventually. I'm going to make a new video on cornrow braids explaining some more, and with views from different angles.

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    This is tricky to explain....but when you pick the hair up kind of run your fingers through as if you are combing the hair out all the way to the ends before you bring it around and pick up more hair.

    Do this with each link you make with the braid to make sure the hair doesn't get tangled. It doesn't matter if you have to go really slowly to do it.

    I'm going to make another video soon showing what I mean o.k.

  • BlackBeautyTips

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    Yay! I'm so glad it worked out for you. I think soon I'm going to have to do a part two for this were I do it from some different angles and explain it more.

    That's so awesome that you got it. Glad I could help!

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    Here's a tip for you. Start small. make a thin part and work on that. As you get better make the section of hair bigger.

    A thinner section is easier to work with and a lot less intimidating than a big ole clump of hair.

    Just take your time and you'll get it. :)

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    You ladies can learn it easy. Back when I had a boyfriend with hair long enough for cornrows I couldn't do it either.

    Just watch closely and move your hands like I move mine and you'll get it soon enough.

    They WILL look like hell the first few times you do it, but as you go along they'll look better and better. :)

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    My hair is dread locked so I don't do tutorials on my own head. Sorry! :)

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    You have the right idea. It's like and inside out french braid. :)

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    Thanks. Once you catch on it's very easy to do.

  • BlackBeautyTips
    BlackBeautyTips 7 years ago

    Hey, just watch my hands, go slow, keep practicing and you'll get it. :)

    tigereyes5 7 years ago

    Yay! i've trust tried this on my hair and it worked!!!! It wasn't very neat mind, but i'll get better. I've always been able to cornrow braiding conventionally (over the fingers) but that only works for side cornrows or french braids. I've been watching other vids but this one worked the best.
    Thanks; you rock!!!!!
