Wink How to braid horse hair for crafts

I've always wanted to braid horse hair for crafts. Thinks like necklaces bracelets and other wearable items. I'm wondering if there are any unique tips and tricks to the braiding. Like do I need to coat the hairs in anything to make them stick together better?
Thanks!

I don't coat them in anything, but I do separate the hairs into bunches of ten so they're easier to manage and count out. And I super glue the ends before I put the clasps on so they won't fray as easily
