Once you’ve prepped, follow these steps for the ultimate pin-up:
Step 1: Apply Black Vanilla 4 in 1 Combing Crème liberally to hair and comb through. We consider this an absolutely essential step to make hair manageable while you’re sectioning hair and getting ready to braid.
Step 2: Section out the top section back to the crown and clip away for later.
Step 3: Smooth sides back and French braid your hair starting at the nape and working up toward the crown.
Step 4: Secure the end of braid with a coated band, tuck ends under and secure with a bobby pin.
**Type 3 girls: on the top section, apply a small amount of Pracaxi Style Control Gel and scrunch those curls for smoothness with incredible hold.
**Type 4 girls: apply Coco Crème Coil Enhancing Moisture Butter to hair and two-strand twist to add gorgeous definition.
Step 5: Finally, allow twist to dry, then undo and fluff with fingers to style
