The Reverse Fishtail Braid

   I'm so sorry for how long it's taken me to do this,y'all. Hopefully, it'll be worth the wait.
   Fishtail braids are really popular right now, but they've become common 'cause of it. I'm weird and like to be a little different. (If you thought this blog was done by someone normal, so sorry.) So I have a less known braid for y'all. It's called the Reverse Fishtail Braid.
   It's very simple,much simpler than it looks. I have no training at all, so if I can do it you can too. I promise all of my braids will be doable but may require practice. Now without forth ado...

The Reverse Fishtail Braid 

1-Brush your hair thoroughly, then divide into two equal sections. For a braid that goes down your back, hold the sections at the center of your neck. Hold them off-center for a side braid.
2-Section off a piece of hair from your left section. Take it under the left section and join it to the right section.
3-Section off another piece of hair the right section, the same size as the last. Take it under the right section and join it to the left section.
4- Without dropping the sections already braided, repeat step 2.
5-Repeat step 3.
6-Continue repeating steps 2&3 until the braid is done. It'll take a little time for the braid to really show up. If your braid is going down your back, you'll need to lean over eventually, but if it's a side braid, just move it onto your shoulder when it's time. Then continue steps 2&3.
7-Once the braid is secured with a ponytail holder, gently tug on the braid to make it bigger. If you tug a good bit,you'll get a messy braid. You may have a part on the back of your head. You can fix this by running a brush or comb over it.
