Learning how to braid your own hair is completely different to braiding someone else's, mainly because you can't see everything all at once which confuses your fingers. The good news is there are a few ways to make braiding your own mane easier!

Keep braiding other people's hair

The better you are at braiding someone else's hair, the easier you'll find it to braid your own locks. Practice makes perfect plaits!

Braid damp hair

Clean, damp hair has way more grip than dry hair which makes it a lot easier to work with when you're figuring out a new braid.

Braid dirty hair

Similarly, unwashed locks are easier to braid with because they aren't as slippery as clean, dry strands.

Use dry shampoo

Apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Blow Out LongWear Spray before you start braiding. It will help bind the hair together which, like working with damp and dirty hair, makes the whole process a lot easier.

Get some tips from your stylist

The next time you're at the salon, get your hairdresser to give you a few pointers and even walk you through any particular braided hairstyle you really want to try. They are professional hairstyle experts after all...

Avoid the mirror

When you're practicing a new braid technique, try and do it without facing a mirror because this can cause some left-right confusion and make you unintentionally mess up the braid. As long as you know how the technique works, doing it blind shouldn't be too difficult.
