“The most popular braids are two rows,” says Dessalegn. But don’t stop there. “You can have four, six or eight cornrows,” Dessalegn adds. Pull them into a ponytail for your workout. Easy!
ALL HAIR TYPES
When braiding curly or wavy hair, Dessalegn suggests a quick wash and blow-dry first to smooth things out. Super-fine hair? Day two after washing is your moment. “It makes it easier to hold the hair when braiding,” she adds.
Want to give it a crack? Make sure you have the right tools in your kit. “Must-haves include a tail comb, brush, hair ties, clips, gel, hair oil, hairspray and hair elastics,” says Dessalegn. So go on, get creative and start braiding!
