What Do We Mean By Feed In Braids?

Adding Feed in Braids

In our contemporary times, feed in braids makes for trendy and sleek fashion statements. But you may be wondering, what is feed in braids?

Feed in braids are a more advanced style of braiding that takes your hairstyling to the next level and adds flair, panache, and finesse. It can be done on all textures of hair – straight, curly, wavy, smooth and silky, or coarse.

The name comes from the fact that synthetic braiding hair is ‘fed in’ with your natural hair to create the appearance that you have very nice, long strands. The hair extensions used for this gradually increase in size as most of your natural hair is replaced entirely with artificial braiding hair.

Trust us, no one can tell apart where your own hair stops and where the extensions begin! That is the true appeal and magic of this style.

You can opt for a wide variety of feed in braids hairstyles that match your personality. While there are many lengths, colors, and thicknesses, the most common and widely used feed in braids is the Cornrow.

Where Did Feed In Braids Originate From?

If you are a fan of history, here are some fascinating facts about this hairdo that might catch your interest.

What we call feed in braids today dates back to 3000 B.C. in the continent of Africa. Yes, it is that old!

This hairstyle has a rich history and it stood for identity in terms of an individual’s social position, religion, ethnic tribes, etc. Particularly for African American slaves, the feed in braids symbolized freedom and resistance.

The pattern of the braids was used as maps to escape enslavement. Inside the braids, men and women carried grains, rice, or seeds as their source of food for their long journey across the Middle Passage.

How To DIY Feed In Braids?

Now that you are familiar with the concept of feed in braids, let us provide you with a detailed guide on how to prepare this hairstyle by yourself.

Here, we will discuss a basic beginner-friendly hairstyle before we address the more complex and difficult looks in the next section. Make sure to follow each portion carefully to do your first solo feed in braids at home!

Prepping Your Hair

The worst kind of hair condition to do feed in braids is tangled, dry, or knotted hairs. So your first step would be to detangle and wet your locks.

Step 1: Wash

Start off by washing your hair with shampoo and a leave-in conditioner. This moisturizes your hair and creates the base for your braids.

Step 2: Stretch

The next step is to stretch your hair with a bristle brush to remove all the knots. Once this is done, move on to blow-drying your hair until it is smooth.

Additional Step: Straighten

If you have got a particularly curly or coarse hair texture, then you can additionally straighten your hair to achieve a sleeker and silkier texture.

Parting Braid Sections

How many braid sections you will part entirely depends on the type and number of braids you wish to create.

For example, if you want to do two thick braids, then you have to part your hair equally into two sections with a middle parting. The position of the parting will shift to the left or right if you want to go for a side part though.

For thinner and more braids, the quantities of parting will increase as well.  It is better to set each parting and braid individually.

Step 1: Shaping

Begin with the side most braid first and collect the hair in a slanted position instead of a straight one. This aligns your braid with the shape of your hairline.

Step 2: Parting

There should be less hair near the nape of your neck and a thicker parting towards your forehead.

It is better to use a metal tail comb for a more accurate and precise parting. But if you do not have that, any rat tail comb can also do the job nicely.

Step 3: Clipping

The non-braided hairs can be clipped away with some hair claw clips and duckbill clips. This will allow you to work on your braids one at a time, undisturbed!

Separating Braiding Hairs

Braiding Hair extensions is absolutely essential for feed in braids. Pre-stretched braiding hairs come in multiple sizes, from 12” to as large as 56”. Choose the quantity and size according to the style of feed in braids you want to do.

To complement your personality, you can opt for colorful hair extensions. Braiding hairs have shades of brown, burgundy, blue, platinum, green, and many more options for you to play with!

Use a braiding rack to separate three to five rows of hair extensions depending on how many braids you will make. Pinch and twist each lock of hair to maintain consistent portions.

To change up your hairstyle, simply dip the pre-stretched braiding hair extensions into hot water. The change in temperatures can give you the appropriate textures necessary to go from Cornrows to Box Braids to Senegalese Twists!

Creating Natural Braids

Before starting to braid, apply some sort of pomade, hair gel, or wax on the roots, edges, and around the perimeter of your hairline. The Shine ’n Jam Conditioning Gel is a highly recommended product for this purpose!

Step 1: Brush Hair to Separate

Brush your hair out to spread the jam. This will give you a straight and smooth base to work on.  Separate your baby hairs to create fancy edge designs!

Step 2: Divide Strands

Take a small section of your hair, divide it into three strands and begin braiding normally without adding any extra hair. This will initiate your natural braids to which you will gradually attach the braiding hairs eventually.

Step 3: Start Cornrowing

You can use a standard cornrow technique for this braiding. Pinch the middle strand and bring the right strand into the middle from underneath. Now go beneath the new middle strand and bring the left strand into the middle.

Keep doing this back and forth to complete the full cornrow braid.

Adding Feed In Braids

After forming a few centimeters of natural cornrow braid, now you can start adding the feed in braids an inch backward from your hairline.

Step 1: Align Your Braids

Use one of the pre-separated locks and further divide it into three strands for the beginning of your first braid. Align one strand with two outside portions of your braid.

Step 2: Keep Adding Hair Extensions

Now bring the middle strand up which contains only your natural hair and continue braiding. After one or two more twists add in another hair extension. Keep doing this as frequently as you like based on the size of your braid.

Step 3: Thicken The Braids

As your cornrow thickens up, continue adding in your natural hair and your feed in hair consecutively. Particularly, feed in the hair extensions into the portions where the braid starts to look a little empty or flat.

If you wish to hide your natural hair color, then add in more extensions and vice versa.

This technique is very helpful for those with thick scalps showing. Adding feed in braids can give you thin and uniform partings with each braid going from thin to thick beautifully!

There are a number of ways in which you can do the feed in braiding technique depending on which hairstyle you are going for. Let’s say you want to do Faux Locs. Then you would have to go for methods such as crocheting or retwisting instead of cornrowing.

Completing Your Look

This is where you complete your look by adjusting and fine-tuning your hair. Follow the steps to get an elaborate idea.

Step 1: Add Gel

Once you are near the end of your natural hair, add in some more of the hair gel or wax. This helps to ensure that your natural hair does not stick out once it gives away to the hair extension completely.

The tight grip of the artificial hair also keeps your natural hair intact! This is especially needed for those of you with curly, kinky, or coily hair.

Step 2: Merge To Make Braids Seamless

As you continue braiding your artificial feed in braid, you may notice that the strands become uneven at the ending tips. No need to panic! Simply steal a little bit of hair from the thicker strand and merge it with the thinner strands until all three strands are of equal size.

At this point, the cornrow will naturally taper down into a long, graceful braid just like your natural hair would. To seal off the end of your feed in braid, there are various processes.

Step 3: Seal Braid Ends

You can just dip the braid end into boiling water to seal it off. Or, you can roll it and then dip it into hot water for a curlier look. The heat from a blow-dryer can also close the cornrow nicely.

If you are uncomfortable with these techniques, you can always use a rubber band. But this is actually the least recommended way.

And, voila! From a thin natural braid to a bold and bulky cornrow, your first strand is done. Repeat sections 2,4,5, and 6 with the rest of your hair to complete the entire look.

Some Care Tips For Your Feed In Braids

Being a protective style, feed in braids require a different type of maintenance than other regular or less complex hairstyles. Such tight protective styles tend to put a significant amount of strain on your scalp, leading to permanent damage.

Don’t get worked up though! We have listed some of the much-needed care tips that can keep your feed in braids fresh, healthy, and shiny.

1. Trace your scalp lines parted between the braids with mineral enriched oils. This can include anything from castor oil to argan or coconut oil.

This stops your scalp from breakage due to all the hair-pulling while constructing the cornrows. You can do this every two to three nights apart to seal in all the nourishing ingredients in your hair.

2. Tie your feed in braids with a satin scarf before going to bed. It is also recommended to use a satin pillowcase.

Silk or cotton are highly absorbent materials. Using these can cause your natural hair oils to dry up.

3. Apply anti-itch hair grease on your scalp in the direction of your cornrows. This helps to prevent your scalps from flaking up.

This tip is especially required if you are going out under direct sunlight.

4. You might get up from bed and find some hair plugging out of your cornrows. To fix this, use hair mousse along the full length of your feed in braids and all over the top of your head.

Do this repeatedly to set all your hair in place and stop them from sticking out in different directions. It will also give your hair a more refreshed and shiny vibe.

5. Wet your edge control brush and apply edge control cream along the hairline above your forehead. This helps to shape and style your baby hairs and sideburns, giving you a more complete look.

6. The next best thing after leave-in conditioners is dry shampoo. Washing your hair with dry shampoo helps to cleanse your scalp and remove all the hair flakes without affecting your feed in braids.

The Batiste Volumizing Dry Shampoo is a great option to freshen up your box braids, faux locs, cornrows, and other protective hairstyles.

7. Try to undo your cornrows after four to six weeks. Your natural hair needs to breathe even if you maintain all the care tips regularly.
Give yourself some time before getting started on your next installation of feed in braids.

8. When you undo your feed in braids, you will notice there is a lot of buildup from all the grease, gel, or wax that you applied to your hair and scalp. To take care of these, add baking soda to your shampoo and apply it before wetting your hair. Leave this on for a couple of minutes before washing off.

Follow up with some diluted vinegar product to restore your hair’s natural glow!

9. Constantly moisturize your scalp. Dilute your hair oils and leave-in conditioners to make sure your hairline, edges, and scalp are regularly hydrated.

Moisture also helps to prevent any form of irritation and itchiness, stopping your scalp from long-term damage.

Follow our nine care tips consistently to keep your feed in braids nourished, moisturized, and in good shape!

Frequently Asked Questions

There are some things you guys often wonder about when it comes to feed in braids. In this article, we have listed some of your most frequently asked questions and answered them one by one.

Q: Is Feed In Braids Long Lasting?

Ans: Sadly, no. Unlike styles like micro box braids which last as long as three months, feed in braids can only last up to two weeks. Once your natural hair growth is initiated, it gets difficult to maintain the polished, sleek exterior of your feed in braids.

You can elongate this to as long as six weeks if you properly maintain your protective hairstyle. Make sure to not strain your scalp by making your cornrows too tight.

Q: Can Feed In Braids Be Done On Short Hairs?

Ans: Of course! The length of your hair can be quite flexible when it comes to feed in braids. For shorter hair, you will simply need more products for your scalp to carry the weight of the hair extensions.

Q: Is It Difficult To Take Care Of Feed In Braids?

Ans: Not at all! By following our easy-to-do care tips, you can easily protect your feed in braids, your roots, and your edges. What is most important is to maintain regularity and consistency.

Instead of doing too much or too little, just make a care routine and nurture the health of your hair properly. If you can preserve your natural hair appropriately, protective styles like the feed in braids can actually result in hair growth due to the least amount of external manipulation such as tugging or touching your hair.

Q: Will Natural Hair Get Damaged By Using Feed In Braids?

Ans: This entirely depends on you. If you are planning to try on feed in braids, you must know that protective hairstyles use a lot of products. So, unless you take care of this style with caution, your natural hair can suffer from scalp acne, clogged pores, and frequent hair fall.

If you have soft scalps, try to avoid using feed in braids. This style is formulated very close to the scalp and it is quite tightly braided. Without proper maintenance, even good-quality hair and scalp can suffer permanent damage and breakage.

Q: How Long Does It Take To Do Feed In Braids Hairstyles?

Ans: Standard feed in braids such as the cornrow can be done very quickly within one to three hours. More complicated styles like the box braids can take longer from five to six hours.

The time required to install feed in braids entirely depends on the style you are going for and the length of your look. If you are planning to DIY feed in braids by yourself, then it can take much longer than it would if you did it at a hair salon.

Note: Remember that the more complicated the braids are the more time it will take for your hairstylist.

Q: What Is The Price Range For Feed In Braids?

Ans: There are two types of cost for feed in braids. If you are getting the whole hairstyle done at a parlor, it will cost you around $80 to $250.

This can go as high as $600 if your feed in braids is more intricately styled or longer in length. The style, size, technique, color – all of these factors in with the total cost.

If you want to DIY feed in braids at your home, then you will need to bear the cost of hair extensions only. This cost varies depending on the length, type, amount, and color of synthetic hair you purchase. The standard braiding hairs cost about $20, but they can be as expensive as $350 as well.

Q: How To Determine The Thickness Of Feed In Braids That Should Be Used?

Ans: The thickness of your feed in braids will change according to the position of your hair. If you are installing the braids closer to the anterior hairline with your natural hair, the braids should be as skinny as a few millimeters of thread. As your braid grows thicker, this size will expand to as thick as a spaghetti pasta or a thick rope.

For a thinner cornrow, you will need about four strands of braiding hair locks. For a thicker cornrow, your braiding hair has to be separated into six or eight strands.
