Before you do, it is important to note a few important things to pull off the perfect braid. Since this hairstyle is commonly done, a lot of women have been trying it out without realising that they are doing it wrong. Watch the video below to find out ways to perfect your braid:
Here are some of the video notes:
* Hair texture is very important when doing braids. Hair that is too silky is not ideal for braids because the strands will slip off easily. If you are working with wet hair, it allows you extra hold. But you can spritz a little bit of hairspray to add more texture and hold to the hair.
* When braiding short hair, twist each section before you put them into braids to get extra hold. This is recommended when you have fine hair.
* Refrain from holding hair up too far away from the scalp when braiding because it will cause the braided hair to get unnecessary body. Make sure to braid a little bit closer to the scalp.
* Do not forget to match kind of braid with natural texture of hair. Some braids tend to look undone while others are more sleek. It is all about balance.
