  • I tried this one on my daughter, and the braid ended up with ends everywhere, looking sloppy and frayed. How did you manage to have it so smooth like it is in the picture?

      • I did, several times, actually 🙂 But I was looking at the picture on the post, and the braid is so smooth and shiny. I was wondering how that was accomplished. The ones I did were so frizzy that it was not pretty.

        • I will ask our hair expert to give you some advice. I am kinda dumb with hair. 🙂

          • Me, too 🙂 Thanks!

            • Hi!
              I am the dubbed “hair expert.” 😉 So, to answer your question, to ensure the braid comes out as smooth as possible, you need to make sure the hair is straight (curly hair will give it a more fussed look. Not bad, but not like the picture) and if there re layers in the hair it will also have more ends popping out. A way to combat frizz is to use a serum or oil and just run about 1/2 a pea size down the section, brushing or combing it to make sure it gets distributed evenly. And make sure you get a good grip on the middle section of the braid before pushing up the other two pieces. And when pulling the pieces back down, do so slowly. I hope that helped Certainly let me know if you have any more questions!

            • That is great information, thank you! I will use a little bit of coconut oil next time and see how it works. 🙂

            • I tried it, and a few other styles that have been frustrating me, and it worked great! Just a fingernail scraping of coconut oil combed well through makes all the difference 🙂 And her hair is really shiny and pretty, making the braid stand out more. Thank you, this is great!

            • Sorry for the late response! I am THRILLED the coconut oil worked for you! That stuff is nature’s miracle product. Great for hair and skin! So happy you are now enjoying the styles!
