prod­ucts that pro­tect the hair

Look to run­way shows like Roberto Cavalli, Stella Jean and our favourite Awk­ward Girl, Issa Rae for in­spi­ra­tion. From flat twists and buns to sim­ple Dutch braids, prac­tice makes per­fect!

GET THE LOOK: DUTCH BRAID • Af­ter blow­ing out your hair, sec­tion it into two parts – the front for the Dutch braid and the back for the bun. Use a wide-toothed comb (1) from GHD, R200 to keep the hair de­tan­gled. Style the front part of the hair by braid­ing it for­ward and wrap­ping it around the ear, loop­ing to­wards the back.• Comb through the sec­ond part of hair and ap­ply Moroc­canoil Mold­ing Cream (2), R365, which pro­vides con­trol and hold­ing power, as well as a flex­i­ble hold and a semi-matte fin­ish.• Smooth the sides of the hair and se­cure the braid with bobby pins. You can use the same tech­nique for other braid­ing styles, too. Try: The Per­fect Hair­line Re­pair Growth Serum (3), R229, is ideal for keep­ing your hair nour­ished. It also pro­motes scalp health and stronger hair growth. Aunt Jackie’s Don’t Shrink Flaxseed Elon­gat­ing Curling Gel (4), R79, sup­ports and im­proves hair health from the in­side out. o
