Most people know to brush their hair from the top of the head to the bottom. The real way in which you wanna brush your hair is from the bottom of your hair to the top. You start by splitting your hair so their is enough on both shoulders. Brush the bottom of one of your group of hair then you move to the other group and brush the bottom of that group of hair. The point of this is so that you don’t lose all of your hair and taking all of the knots out at the end. Then you wanna pull all of your hair to one side and continue to brush the rest of your hair from the top down.

Step 3: Step 3: Split Hair Down the Middle

The next step is to split your hair down the middle. You want to do this for boxer braids (this hairstyle) to make sure that you do this for a perfect straight line down the middle of your head. This is done by taking your comb preferably one that has a pointy tip. Take this comb and start at the tip of your nose and continue the comb straight back to the back of your head. Then carefully take the brush and fully brush the air evenly to each side of the line. This is done so that it doesn’t look like you have a wobbly line.

Step 4: Step 4: Tie Hair

Then you want to pick up a piece of hair to add to one side of your braid and continue to do this till there is no more hair available to pick up.
