BB collaborated with blogger Shalini of Knot Me Pretty who showed us 3 heatless braid hairstyles to try this season...
Before beginning, opt for the TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner. This duo contains a natural blend of olive oil and camellia oil that works towards making your hair soft and smooth hair.
The double braid
Step 1 – Create a side parting in your hair and separate a 2 inch section from it. Divide this section into 2 equal halves. For a fishtail braid, use your thumb to pass a portion of hair from the left to the right section. Then pass a portion of hair from the right side to the left.
Step 2 – Repeat this until you have plaited the entire section into a fishtail braid. Once complete, pull it backwards and pin it within the loose hair at the back.
Step 3 – Bring all your hair over your shoulder and using the same method, plait your hair into a fishtail braid. Continue until all your hair is in the braid and tie it into place.
Your twisted braid hairstyle is ready for action this season!
The braided twists
Step 1 – Part your hair straight down in the middle. On the right hand side of your head, separate a 2 inch section of hair from the front and plait it into a regular 3 strand braid.
Step 2 – Repeat the step for the left hand side as well. Braid the separated section until the end and tie it. Loosen both the braids slightly. Then turn each braid around and pin them together at the back of your head.
Step 3 – Take a section of hair from in front of the braid, twist it and loosen it slightly, then pull it backwards and tuck it behind the braid. Secure it in place with a U-pin.
Step 4 – Take a second section of hair from in front of the braid and repeat it by twisting and tucking it inside the plaid. Follow this on the left hand side of your head as well.
Now all that’s left is to flaunt your brand new heatless hairstyle!
Braided space buns
Step 1 – Separate a large section from the top centre of your head and braid it into a simple 3 strand plait.
Step 2 – Similarly, separate a section from the right hand side of your head and braid it until the end. Do the same for a section of hair from your left hand side.
Step 3 – Then wrap the braid around its base, hold it in place and secure it with a U-pin. Repeat this for the braids on your left and right hand side of your head.
Your braided hairstyle of triple space buns is all you need to stay cool in the summer heat.
