Back to basics: How to braid your own hair
11 December 2018
Braids are beautiful! If you’re used to rocking braid hairstyles created by the salon experts or wearing a braided weave, here’s how to get the look all on your own.
While it isn’t necessary to wash your hair before braiding, it can help to ensure that your hair looks shiny and healthy in any braid style that you choose. Don’t forget to use lightweight, leave-in Mizani 25 Miracle Milk for added moisture.
Regardless of whether or not your locks are newly washed, you’ll want to prep them with a bit of nourishing Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Plaiting Pudding Cream. This hair cream contains mango oil and bamboo milk, both of which add that beautiful finishing touch to popular braid hairstyles.
If you’re used to rocking braid hairstyles created by the salon experts, or wearing a braided weave, here’s how to get the look all on your own.
Brush through the hair until smooth and tangle-free, then separate it into three, equal sections. Cross the right section over the top of the middle section so that the right section becomes the new middle section, and the middle section becomes the right section. Do the same with the left section. Repeat, alternating the left and right sections over the centre.
Secure your hard work with a hair tie and add a spritz of hairspray for extra hold and a bit of shine.
Braid styles may seem daunting at first, but the process really does become second nature after a bit of practise. The hardest part is the workout that you get in your arms - if you’re not used to braiding, they can tire quickly. Practise makes perfect though.
Talk about an effortless, versatile everyday hairstyle! We have no doubt that it will quickly become your go-to for work and play.
