Before beginning your braid, ensure that you’ve got clean, smooth hair.

For best results, wash and condition it with the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. Its keratin-infused formula will leave your hair frizz-free and manageable—the perfect base for your braid.

Start the Dutch braid by dividing your hair into three sections. Place the section on the right under the section in the center and follow this up by placing the section on the left under the one in the center. Repeat this motion once more.

Then, add a small section of hair from the right side of the braid to the section on the right and together, place this under the section in the centre.

After this, add some hair from the left side of your braid to the section on the left place it under the section in the center.

Keep carrying out the same motion of adding more hair into your right section and then the left section as you place it under the one in the centre.

Continue this until you have completely braided your hair and secure with a decorative hair tie for a fabulous look.
