Learn how to dutch braid as a beginner

There are 2 ways you can add hair to this braid and in this video, I’m showing you the first way. This is the way of adding hair to the braid I always do and this is what works best for me. But everyone is different, and if you find this way hard, then give the other way of adding hair to the braid! (Video linked below on the second way)

If you have really healthy hair and you find the hair slipping out of your fingers, which makes it quite hard to braid. Then try out a hair powder, that is going to give the hair grip and texture. Then it will be way easier to braid your own hair!

The hair powder I use myself, will be linked below and its great!
