How to Do a Chinese Braid
with color illustrations and a photo
A Chinese braid is very much like a French braid, but with two strands. It is a low tension but secure style that is made for long hair, and therefore very useful to people with mature dreadlocks.
Though this style is called a Chinese braid, there are actually a great many Chinese braids and knots. This is why searching for this style on the internet can be confusing. However, rest assured that you have indeed found your way to the Chinese style two-strand overhand trackbraid, that is actually predated by a two strand track braid popular among desert tribal people in Africa who have long but very tightly curled hair.
Then take a bit from the left side, and cross it over to the right. Make sure the ends are far apart from one another.
Post photos of your style in the gallery!
