Dutch Braid Hair Hack

If you love a beautiful braid hairstyle, you will love a Dutch braid style. The thing is though, not everyone (including myself) can do a Dutch braid hairstyle. I rely on my go-to Dutch braid hair hack for my hair and on Victoria’s too (good news is that it works like a charm!).

I’m all about hair hacks because they’re easy ways to rock a hairstyle. I know that not everyone is great at creating braids, so hair hacks are normally the best way to make one work. I love being able to share these because I know it does make hairstyles easier to create.

This is one hair hack that I’ve been doing for years, I love it because it’s not only easy – it’s simple and comes out looking so pretty. Dutch braiding is when you braid under, whereas a French braid is when you braid over. Dutch braids come out looking thicker, which I personally just love.

Step-by-Step Hairstyle:

  1. Start with 2 high and 2 low ponytails.
  2. Braid the top two sections.
  3. Once the top sections meet the low ones, create a three-strand braid (braiding under) with all of the hair.

Hair Products We Love:

1. I love love love using these hair ties. These are fantastic for keeping the hair from creasing and they don’t damage the hair either.

2. I love using a leave-in conditioner spray on Victoria’s hair before I start. I just like to make sure there aren’t any tangles before we get going.

4. These are the hair elastics that I’ve been using lately. They’re durable and don’t damage the hair. The quality is incredible, not to mention they’re super inexpensive.
