All throughout summer I rocked the double dutch braid left and right, and I thought- this is going to be perfect fall hair! Today I will be showing you how to do your very own double dutch braid. Trust me it is easy and takes such a short time, once you practice and perfect it, you will think it is the easiest thing on the planet! You can look salon fresh even if you’re on a tight budget, I’ll show you how.


Go to your local Wal-Mart and purchase the Suave Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair shampoo, conditioner, and oil treatment.

Wash your hair with Suave Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair shampoo and conditioner and let dry (this can be done with damp hair too). Then add the oil treatment to the ends of your hair.

Part your hair in the middle and select up to two inches of the front middle part of your hair. Divide them into three parts, this hand placement will stay as is throughout the braid.

Accumulate this hair to the right side. Do the same to the right section. Make sure you always go over the middle part! Do this until you reach the bottom.

Tip: always keep the braid tight and point it at the direction you want it to settle, I pointed mine to the front so they can settle right on my shoulders.

I got all the Suave products from my local Wal-Mart and you can too! Did you know that the Suave Coconut Oil Infusion works as well as luxury brands like Ojon Damage Reverse? This is because it is infused with pure coconut oil, which moisturizes and does so without making your hair feel heavy. Use the Suave Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair shampoo and conditioner 3 times and you will start seeing the difference! The Damage Repair Oil Treatment shines your hair to a natural shine, tames flyaways, and smooths rough cuticles. Visit your local Walmart to try out all of the new 2016 Suave Professionals collections: Coconut Oil Infusion, Coconut Milk Infusion and Biotin Infusion, while supplies last.
