    Default Is what I'm looking for a paranda?

    Something came to mind - some kind of brightly coloured ribbon or thread or something woven into Dutch braids maybe for an event like a festival. What was the name of this if you know? I know of parandas but I don't think this is a paranda. It's like some kind of fake hair extension or something.

    Yep, something like that can be called a paranda too!

    If I'm imagining what you are, I would just call that "weaving a ribbon through a braid."
    Putting it in my signature because I have to say it so often:
    Do what works for your hair, not what other people say is "right" or "wrong." If it works for you, it's not wrong. If it doesn't work for you, it's not right.

    If you are thinking specifically of a ribbon, check out the four-strand braid where the ribbon stays in the center, it is a really neat effect.

    I have a beaded paranda, three strands of brown embroidery floss with beads tied on at irregular intervals.
