1. Start on detangled hair (The hair in the picture below was previously in a twist out. The hair was sectioned and lightly sprayed with water and conditioned using Thirsty Kurls Leave-in Conditioner to soften the texture.) This leave-in conditioner makes the hair soft and allows it to be easily smoothed with a boar bristle brush.
2. Use a rattail comb to fashion a precise part on one side. The model in this photo opted for a textured bang so hair was left out in the front. A clean separation in the part makes for a sleeker and more striking look. We used Jelle Coconut Styling Gel to smooth the hair and edges for a seamless beautiful braid.
3. Once each braid has made it to the nape, secure the ends with bobby pins. A sharp part makes this look neat and stunning. Use hair pins that match your hair color.
The Goddess Braid is a perfect protective style for Summer.
It is very low maintenance: to fresh up the look, spray lightly with water and apply a light weight gel that will not flake or crunch like Jelle Coconut Styling Gel. The hair must be tied down at night with a satin or silk scarf to prevent frizz.
