1. Apply a small amount of the Percy & Reed Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational Volumising No Oil, Oil through from roots to tips for shiny, texturised hair. Then take a small section of hair near your temple and separate into small pieces.

2. Begin braiding by crossing sections underneath each other. Each time you cross a section, add a small piece of hair. Tip: braiding strands underneath, or ‘dutch braiding’ makes your braid stand out more. Continue braiding until you reach the back of your head.
