Today I was scrolling through Pinterest (obviously) and saw a tutorial on twisting your hair into a fancy looking half up do and thought to myself  “my hair would never stay if I did that.” And for some reason that made me think that I should do a post about my top tips for braiding because I’m sure that girl had some tips that made her hair stay in the cute twists on the back of her head.

Dry Shampoo (or second day hair): My very first tip is if your hair is really smooth and silky (lucky you) then definitely either use a dry shampoo or texturizing spray, or braid on second day hair. This will ensure that your braids won’t just slip out, it will give your hair some grip. And honestly, you could even just use some good old fashioned corn starch. Hairspray Your Bobby Pins: I love this tip because my hair definitely likes to eject any bobby pins I try and put in it. However, now that I’ve been doing this is really helps them stay put. Just spray a little bit of hairspray on your bobby pins and let them dry for a second so they get a little tacky, and pop them in! Super simple. Pull Them Apart: Every single time I do any braid, I always like to pull them apart to make them look fuller and a little messier. I don’t like it when my hair looks too perfect, so pulling out my braids really helps me achieve the look I’m going for. Smooth Your Strands: This may seem totally obvious, but make sure your hair is full combed out before you start your braiding. This will make the process a whole lot easier I guarantee.

I hope this helped some people who might have some issues with having their braids stay in place all day! If you have any tips for making your braids stay, let me know in the comments below! I would love to try out any tips you guys have! Also, look out for a plethora of new hairstyle posts coming soon!
