I kind of thought that knowledge of how to do a regular old braid was the sort of programmed knowledge that all women come with. Apparently not. I suggested that my roommate braid her hair and she looked at me like I'd told her to perform nuclear fusion. In case you to are fully unaware of the ways of the braid, see above. Start with three equal sections of hair. Cross the left section over the middle section, then the right section over the new middle section (previously the left section). Repeat until you're ready to rubbe rband it off.
