To begin with, part the hair down the middle of your head and then pick a tiny piece of hair about the size of 2-3 inches from the right side near the hairline. You may also want to grab a bigger chunk as per your own liking but it’s worth remembering that the smaller strand you’ll take the better snake braids you’ll achieve.
Split the hair piece you’ve grabbed into three equal sections and create the traditional three strand braid all the way down to the bottom, making it sure that your braid is neither too loose not too tight.
Once you’ve reached the point where you ca comfortably end, hold the middle section in one hand and the rest two sections in the other combining them together. Holding the central strand firmly at the bottom gently push the side strands up to the top of the head in a way that they are bunched up.
Next starting from the top, pull the strands down altogether steadily. The zigzag snake like pattern will start appearing here. As soon as the pattern ends, secure it with an elastic band and you’re done.
