Use a clarifying shampoo to wash your hair. Do not apply any conditioners, mousses, pomades, hair gels or any othertypes of hairproducts after washing. Air-dry your natural hair. Remove any tangles or knots by combing out your hair. If you find your hair are so dry that it hardly can be combed through, you can drop a dime-sized amount (not too much) of hair oil onto the palm of your hands and apply it to your hair from root to tip.
Separate your hair into four sections. Section your hair straight down the middle of your head, from the front of your hairline to the nape of your neck with a rattail comb. Create a part across your head from the middle part to your right ear. Create another part from the middle part to your left ear. Gentle twist each of the four sections of hair and secure with hair clips.
Release one of the lower sections of hair and allow it to fall freely. Comb through the section and flatten the hair. Use a ratail comb to take a small section of hair, approximately 1/4 inch, from the hair at the base of your head. Grasp a small section of Brazilian hair extensions, about the same width as the section you parted from your natural hair. Fold the extension section in half to make two pieces of hair from the hair extension. Place the folded section of hair at the base of your hair. Your natural hair should fall in between the two pieces of the extension.
Braid your natural hair into the Brazilian hair extensions. Begin at the scalp and braid approximately 1/8 down the length of your hair, just enough to secure the hair extensions in place. Cut a 2inch piece of hair extension thread and fold it in half. Place the folded end on the outside edge of the base of your braid and hold it in place using your index finger.
Wrap the two pieces of thread around the entire braid. Pull the excess thread through the loop created by the folded end of the thread that is on the outside edge of your braid. Cut away the excess thread that remains after it has been pulled through the loop.
Repeat steps-four through five as you work your way across and up the loose section of hair. Release the other lower section of hair and continue with the Brazilian knotting process just as you did in the previous section of hair. Finish by adding extensions in the two front section of your hair.
