Draw a medium amount of strands from the extensions for thinner and lighter braids. Take one section and start braiding the usual three strand braid putting the extension close to the scalp.
Repeat the same for other sections and be patient. This can take a lot of time! Check out the best celebrity braid hairstyles!

These DarlingSuper Star Extension braids seal with hot water due to the Kanekalon fiber used in it. Seal in the look by dipping the ends of your braids, few at a time, in super-hot water for a few seconds. You can also do it for three-quarter of the length of your braids but with some help from another person. Be careful of the hot water and don’t attempt this while the pot is on the gas. As soon as you pull your hair out, take the towel down the braids for straighter ends.
