Women's Health (UK) - - GOOD LOOKS -

STEP 1 De­tan­gle your hair and part into a clean mid­dle parting, us­ing a Pro-tip 05 Pin­tail Comb. Spray Palmer’s Co­conut Oil For­mula Strong Roots Spray along the parting to help neaten it up. STEP 2 Clip one side up. Ap­ply

Palmer’s Mois­ture Re­pair Raw Shea Curl Cream to the roots of your hair and hair­line and comb through to dis­trib­ute. STEP 3 For the French braid, sec­tion the top of your hair into a small tri­an­gle with the pin tail and sep­a­rate three even sec­tions out of the tri­an­gle. Place the right­most strand over the mid­dle strand and then the left­most strand over the mid­dle strand to start your braid off. STEP 4 Add an even sec­tion of hair from ei­ther side each time you put an out­side strand over the mid­dle. Once at the nape of your neck, tie your braid with an elas­tic band to cre­ate a pony­tail, take a small sec­tion of hair, spray it with Sch­warzkopf Got2b 2 Sexy Vo­lu­miz­ing Hair­spray (£4.19) and wrap it around the band to hide it. STEP 5 Start your fish­tail braid by sep­a­rat­ing the pony into two sec­tions. Take a small piece of hair from the right side and cross it over to the left, then take a small sec­tion of hair from the left side and cross it over to the right and con­tinue un­til you get to the bot­tom. Tie with a band. STEP 6 Re­peat steps 3-5 on the other side. Once fin­ished, ap­ply hair­spray to the braids and comb any fly­aways to­wards the French braid for a per­fectly neat fin­ish.
