Learn how to create a nine strand braid
Wash your hair
Before you start creating any hairstyle, it is important to make your hair sleek, frizz-free, and easy-to-style. Achieve this by washing your hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo. Then, follow it up by using DOVE Intense Repair Conditioner to help smooth out signs of hair damage.
Spray hair wax
Apply TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax on your hair to give it grip. This will make your hair easier to braid.
Divide and clip
Divide your hair into three equal sections. Then, clip two sections separately so they stay in place as you work on one section of your hair.
Braid one section
Put the unclipped section of hair into a three-strand braid. Make the braid a bit loose. Secure the tip with an elastic.
Braid the other two sections
Unclip the other two sections and put each in a three-strand braid. Tie the end of each braid with an elastic. By now, you should have three braids.
Combine all the braids
Create a three-strand braid out of the three smaller braids that you have. Secure the end with an elastic, then remove the three elastics that hold each of the smaller braids. Gently tug the sides of your nine-strand braid to give it a fuller look.
The nine strand braid is perfect when you’re feeling adventurous about your hair. Style your hair this way when you go meet your friends at your long overdue Satur-date. We’re sure they will be impressed by your ‘do that looks intricate yet easy to create. Add the nine-strand braid to your hairstyle options when you’re spending time outdoors, like jogging or going around the city.
