Patra Braids Step by Step Solange/Poetic Justice Inspired Tutorial Part 2


This is step two of the patra braids style
in this that I will be showing you and details step-by-step how to braid your patra braids
before we begin braiding our hair I will show you how to prepare your synthetic hair to
begin braiding so here in my hand I have my first package of synthetic braiding as you
can see the braiding hair is a different color from my hair and that’s fine because I want
to use a splash of color within my patra braids if you would like to make sure that all of
your braids ae the same color your head and choose one consistent color if you would like
to use color use as much or as little as you want and I only have one package of colored
hair and this color is in the number 33 so once I remove the hair from his package this
is it originally length if I braid shorter or to just go past my shoulders and be somewhere
probably mid back if you would like your braids sure reports just fall in your shoulders I
suggest that you go ahead and cut the pack and so what I want to do is use scissors to
remove the rubber bands from the top of the bundle and the bottom of the bundle once you
have cut the rubber bands off from your bundle of hair you can begin braiding that is what
want to do but if you begin braiding with the hair as it is you will notice that the
ends of your hair will appear really choppy simply because all you do the hairs are exact
same length which is why the ends loo very straight and very blunt and that is why it’s
important to have a really beautiful look to your patra braids it’s always nice to make
sure the very end of your braids aren’t blunt but that they come to more of a finer
point at the bottom of your braids so this method of what i am do is called the pulling
method simply because I’m going to be pulling hairs from one side of my bundle to make sure
that all of the hairs are not equal so when I will be doing is with one hand holding the
top of the bundle in the other hand I will grab random hair son one side of the bundle
and I will pull them loosely so that is loosely so if it a little hard for you to pull them
make sure that you loosen your grip at the top of your bundle go ahead and pull a random
hairs so that they will not be as even so now on the other side is going to go ahead
and rake this hair to see that if it looks even work that it looks choppy at all so once
you pull and tug on the hairs of your bundle you want to make sure you do a little check
to see the ends are very straight and then it are go ahead and you can begin braiding
and positioning your hair for your braids but if you still the answer just a little
too straight for you a little too perfect go ahead and continue to tug on those hair
until you get the desired look now that you have actually prep your synthetic hair for
your braids next I will show you how to position your hands for your braids okay so do you
have tapered the ends of your hair next I will be showing you how to actually section
off the amount of hair you will use per braid and I’ll show you how to position your hands
for your braid so you are just going to go ahead and take a big chunk of hair from his
package so this is probably a fourth of the package of hair and I’m just going to separate
it from the rest and we are going to work on this hair here
so after you have separated the hair make
sure you find the middle portion of where the hair is and then you are just going to
go ahead and defy this hair into two pieces but the way that you want to divide this hair
is that you want to pinch a third of the hair off from the rest of the hair in your hand
someone a separate as I will have a third in one hand into thirds and my other hand
in my right hand I have one third of the hair and in my left hand I have two thirds of the
hair so at this point you want to take the third and wrap it around or two thirds so
that this hair can meet once again some just going to take the third wrap it around his
two thirds here and pull the side through so now here in my right hand I still have
my third and it’s actually wrapped around the two thirds of this hair now make sure
that both sides are equal next you are going to use your hands to position your hair on
the weave and then begin braiding so from this point I take my right hand in the three
main fingers of my right hand I will hold the third portion of hair and I want to get
as close to this middle point as possible where they both are connected and use my the
index and middle finger to hold the hair in position next I want to take my left hand
and the that I am going to hold this other side someone to put my index finger through
the opening with my middle finger on the outside might on the outside and I want to use the
rest of my fingers to hold the hair so underneath this is what it looks like for my index finger
through my thumb is on the side my middle finger is on the side now use the rest of
my fingers to just hold the hair now next what you do is you take your right hand and
you turn it underneath and then you are going to use your index finger and put it through
this opening on the left so I am just going to take my right hand turn in under making
sure to hold the hair and in between these two openings here I’m going to insert my index
finger and then I’m going to use my index finger and my thumb to hold a piece of hair
that’s in between those two so once I have my hand in position here I am then going to
let go of my right hand and I will begin braiding with just one hand and when I braid what I
do is that I’ve been the hair in between my thumb and my index finger to braid so once
again I’m going to show you exactly how I do this so I am going to go ahead remove it
all in my right hand is one third in my left hand is to there is one third round of two
thirds to form three equal parts make sure that both ends are equal and even to one another
and that you have and I have three pieces take my right hand 3 main fingers and I hold
the hair on the side next I take my left hand insert my index finger through and use the
rest of my fingers to hold the hair once I hold all the hair I turned my right hand underneath
use my index finger put it through the opening of the hair and hold the hair in between my
thumb in my index into position and now my left hand is free so once you know how to
position your hands on this weave then you will begin braiding your patra braids so now
that you know how to position your hands on your we next right now I’m going to show you
how to part your hair for your patra braids so you are familiar with single braids just
imagine a size that you part for your single braid but this time you going to part double
the amount of hair so what I will be doing is taking my comb and the comb that I like
to use is called a rat tail comb simply because it has a rat tail end now I use this pointy
end to part my hair so that I have to divide so much hair at once I don’t like to use the
comb that much when I’m making parts because it’s very easy for my hair to get pretty tangled
in the individual teeth so with just one pointy end I will use this end to part my hair so
I’ll be starting on the right side braid and I will take this and part a big size braid
on my head so this is a section of hair that I have parted for my patra raids and as you
can see this is a pretty big chunk of hair to braid with you want to make sure that your
parts are pretty big because patra braids are big braids so the size of my part is probably
about an inch and a half or an inch on both sides just make sure that your parts are bigger
than what you would use for box braids or single braids so after you have parted your
hair next you just got a comb through detangle that section of hair and apply hair gel to
begin braiding your hair
so now we going to go through the steps once again fairly quickly on how to position your
hands on your synthetic braiding hair so I am just going to take my hair here divide
it into a third into thirds and once I do that to make sure both sides are equal take
my third wrap it around the two thirds of the hair and bring those two pieces together
to form three equal pieces so now take my right hand and position my fingers on the
third piece here and then I take my left hand insert my index finger through the opening
and put the rest of my fingers around the hair now the next thing that I do is I take
my right hand and i twist it underneath stick my index finger through the hair and then
I’m going to pinch that hair in between my thumb and my index finger so and then that
frees my left hand so I have a piece of hair here that’s on top of my fingers piece of
hair in between my index and thumb and the other piece of hair in between my fingers
on my right hand so now once again to you are going to make sure that you feed the hair
in this section of hair your real hair will be applied here because you will feed your
real hair between your thumb and your index finger so now we will begin braiding so just
go ahead and make sure the hair is an all in your way and I like to come and throw behind
my shoulders and now with my free hand is going to gather all of my hair make sure you
have it all gathered in my hand just to hold for security them with my right hand on the
open up my index finger and my thumb a little bit to pinch all of the hair so I am just
can open up my thumb and index make sure I have a firm hold on the rest of the hair and
then I’m going to insert my hair in their and hold it you want to make sure you’re as
snug to your scalp as possible so once again here it is the hair that’s in between my index
and my thumb I will open those two fingers up and grab all of the hair there next what
I do I have I have a piece of hair that is on top of my hand and I’m going to reach my
left hand over grab a piece of hair and I am going to move it to the side of my head
and at the same time twist my right hand to the right make sure to hold everything tight
once I do that with this hand here my left hand I’m going to take my index insert it
through this opening here and then I’m going to my index finger onto this piece of hair
so once I do that added to that a reposition my right hand on that piece of hair there
so now with my left hand I am going to twirl it to the left take my index in my right hand
insert it through this opening here in hello my index finger to that bottom piece some
look in there to hold it today and in my left hand is free so go ahead and position all
of your hair to make sure that it’s not tangled within one another and then you do the same
process again take your freehand the three main fingers and grab that loose piece of
hair that’s on top once you do that you go to make sure is all snug to your scalp with
your right hand take your index finger and hook it onto that piece of hair at the bottom
there with your index finger and connect with the other hand so now my righ hand is free
so as you notice the hand that always twist whether to the left of the right to have two
pieces of hair and so with my free hand going to hold the individual piece of hair that’s
all alone and since my left hand has two pieces of hair I have to twist it to the left if
my right hand had two pieces of hair I would twist that hand to the right so my left hand
twisted to the left and then once you get that opening in between those two pieces you
can take your index insert it through and then continue the same process make sure they occasionally separate all the three
pieces of hair from one another so you can avoid knots and tangles so I am going to flip my hands around to just
continue braiding all the way to the very bottom so I am going to use is going to continue
braiding sometimes I like to share different hairs from different sides to make sure that
I can braid all the way to the very bottom now you can see when we pulled on those hairs
to make sure that the ends weren’t blunt we were able to come to more of a finer point
more of a cleaner look with our braid
so once you braid as far as you can go just go ahead and release and I just smooth the
rest of the hairs at the bottom and then my braid is finished okay so now I have parted
a new section on my hair to detangle and applied my gel and I’m going to show the process once
again in just a little bit more of my pace so now to take the hair I have in my hand
to fight the third from the two thirds make sure both sides are equal wrap the third around
the two thirds and bring those two pieces together so now I have three equal pieces
and I am going to use my scissors to cut that little hair out the way so now with my three
equal pieces I am going to position my right hand and position my left hand on the hair
twirl my right hand under insert my index finger through in pinch my index finger might
come together so now my left hand is free and I have three separate pieces of hair for
braiding so now I am just going to throw the hair over my hand behind my back to keep the
hair out of the way and I want to begin braiding someone to take my free left hand gather all
of the hair in my hand to make sure that I have all of the hair then with my right hand
I will open up my index in my middle finger excuse me my index and thumb and I want to
grab all of the hair there so now once I grab all the hair to have it secured I am going
to take my left free hand put it over my head and I’m going to grab this have a top and
I’m going to bring it over to the side twist my right hand to the right and create a little
opening between my thumb with my index my middle take the index of my left hand okay
on that bottom piece and add it to that hand so now once I do that I am going to separate
the hairs out of bit and with my free right hand I’m going to grab my hair with that piece
of synthetic hair I hair that I have here make sure it securely in my make sure my left
hand is positioned as well I am going to go ahead now since I had two pieces in my left
hand would twist my left hand to the left and from that opening there hook my index
finger and add it to my hand so if you’re wondering how many times do you do the twisting
process and hook your finger on that piece of hair you do that about 3 to 4 times you
can honestly do it as much as you want but the goal is just to make sure that the hair
is secure on your braid so you are just going to continue as you have those two pieces in
your hand to twist in hook your finger and then just go ahead and continue braiding to
the bottom so I am just going to bring my hands to the front to help me finish braiding so in this step I have shown you how to prepare
your synthetic braiding hair for your braids and I have also shown you how to position
the hair in your hands and braid your own patra braids so in the next step, step number
three I will be sharing with you my tips tricks and advice for braiding beautiful patra braids
