Dragon Queen Braids Tutorial with Karla Aguas


Start with clean, flake-free hair and scalp

This hairstyle reveals the scalp so you’d want it to be clean and flake-free. Nothing ruins a killer hairstyle like dandruff, so wash your hair with CLEAR Complete Soft Care Shampoo to make sure you have fresh, fragrant, and dandruff-free hair. There’s only one SNOW a queen like you is interested in, and it’s definitely not the kind that falls from your head!

Braid your hair, Dutch-style

Spray hair with TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to add grip and volume to your hair. Then, form a one-sided Dutch braid with sections from the top of the right side of your head. Secure the ends with elastic, then repeat on the left side. It can be a quite a challenge, but you’re a strong woman, you got this!

More braids!

Take smaller sections from either sides of your head and create regular braids out of them. This should allow for double intersecting braids.

Tie them together

Tie all four braids together with an elastic, resulting to a half-up half-down hairstyle.
