French Braiding

Sunday, 05 July 2009

french braidingA French braiding is a beautiful hairstyle, but it's not easy to learn. However, if you follow all the required steps carefully and patiently, you will be able to braid your own hair (or someone else's) into a timeless, classic style. Usually the youth chooses this hairdo and the active people who are confident in their desires and actions. Such a hairdo is loved by both sexes. French braid, also known as «French» is like the well-acknowledged dreadlocks.

They differ in one and the only detail - first, the braids are made on the head directly, at the root of hair close to the skin creating fanciful designs from plain parallel straight lines to complicated and artfully braided and twisted ornaments, round patterns and zigzags.

Sometimes people confuse braids with the hairdo called French plait, also known as ‘fishtail'. French braid is very alike dreadlocks, but it is rather a kind of it.  It is smaller in size, plaited more tightly than dreadlocks.

If you search for new styles, if you live a lively life and go in for extreme kind of sports, or just the only intention of yours is to show off in the crowd, then this original and funny braids is exactly what you need. The majority of women wear short hairdo, or medium and long hair, and you will be like a bright spot in the crowd of other women.

If you remember, David Backham sometime wore French braids that was populated by the fans and then by the wide public, yet, the beauty salon masters hardly found time to serve those who longed to experience a new and trendy hairdo.

As well as for dreadlocks, this hairdo is plaited in the natural hair using some artificial hair if and when necessary. The advantage of the French braids is that you can have your hair plaited even if your hair is 10-15 cm long. The hair will be tightly plaited very close to the skin that will not disturb you in your everyday active life style when doing sports, for instance.

If you have short hairdo but you are short of time to style it or just got sick to do that, the braids is the real solution for you. The professional hairdresser will plait your hair in splendid net or zigzag and the braids will end at the neck line.

In case you wear medium or long hair, French braids is also a good solution. You are welcome to choose the pattern you want to have in your hair and then it is up to you, to choose different decorative elements, locks of other shades or other artificial material.

The whole process of plaiting lasts longer than average dreadlocks since masters plait your hair very close to the skin. In the event if you choose a fanciful pattern, you need to consider your time, the process is time-consuming enough.

Once you have your hair plaited in French style, you may wear it for a month or a little bit longer, much shorter than dreadlocks since when your hair grows, new hair spoils the hairdo and makes it less effective-looking. You need to go to the hairdresser's and renew the hairdo. After you had your braids undone, you'd better take some time and use various hair care products for rehabilitation, rejuvenation and nourishing purposes.

Use soft shampoo and a sponge to wash your French braids or wash it in the traditional way. Avoid rubbing your hair with a towel since you may disturb the pattern and spoil the entire effect. You do not need using balms and masks since they cannot go deep into the hair and in case they do, they make your hair greasy and untidy when all the stuff is piled up in the hair.

You are not recommended that you have the French braids if your hair is weak since this hairdo will spoil and trauma it for sure. And something else, only if you are sure that the skin of your head is clean and healthy, then you are welcome to have this hairdo. Otherwise, you will only shock and make bad impression on people surrounding you with greasy skin, dandruff and wounds.

One more thing, if you tend to lose your hair do not try the braids. This hairdo will only worsen your problem for it makes more tension to the hair roots.
