How to Rock Half-Up, Half-Down Braids Jul 27, 2018

Want to create some drama? Be bold with one of our favorite braid hairstyles, and achieve perfectly smooth cornrows thanks to a genius blow dry cream and fabulous product to tame frizzy hair. This hairstyle works beautifully on natural hair or with crochet hair, so go ahead and give it a try!

Start by prepping your curls, no matter what type, with our universally moisturizing Black Vanilla Shampoo and Conditioner, to infuse nourishment.

Then, spray in Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner and come to distribute. This helps create incredible softness and shine.

Follow that up with a small amount of our favorite Pracaxi Nectar Blow Dry Cream. Apply to your tresses, then take small sections of hair and rough dry to create a textured blowout.

Next, on the top of your head, make 2 to 3 wide sections and create loose inverted cornrows that go back to the crown. Secure with bobby pins, leaving the ends free. Lift the inverted cornrows with a comb or your fingers for added volume.

Apply a small amount of Pracaxi Nectar Frizz Tamer — the ultimate finishing touch to smooth flyaways and set your look.

Finally, brush sides back, overlay on bobby pins and secure with decorative pins.
