Hair Braiding Community
a friend asked me to braid her hair mixing it with synthetic hair and i think i can handle it, but i need some hints, like - how much synthetic hair will i need? the same amount as the natural hair? more? less? is it up to me to decide? i don't know how much to buy, and it's not exactly cheap...|
also, i think i know how to start a braid with the extra hair, but i have no idea how to end it. when i braid people, i usually just put tiny rubber bands a few cm from the ends of the hair, but i've always seen braids with synthetic hair ended with no bands at all, looking like they've been heat-sealed or something... how do i do that? also, my friend's hair is a bit uneven as she's growing out her bangs... any extra tips how to handle that little problem? i guess add more hair in the front...?
just so you know, i'm not a complete beginner to hairbraiding^^ i just prefer cornrows and french braids and five-strand braids and other things like that... all natural, never tried synthetic... a bit of "stage-fright", i guess. :) here's a photo gallery of some people who kindly allowed me to play with their hair :)
