Super easy thick dutch braid for any hair type, yay! | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Super easy thick dutch braid for any hair type, yay!





Oh heyyyyyyyy guys! Thanks a million for all your kind words on Monday's post. To say I was excited to collaborate with jane.com would be an understatement. I had been wanting to get an American flag swim suit to take some 4th of July pictures in and it was perfect timing and ended up working out well for the jane.com photo contest!

 Anyways, sorry for posting this thick dutch braid tutorial late! I think I told like 6 people I would post this tutorial on Monday and then I didn't and now it is Wednesday. Please say we can still be friends! The dutch braid is probably my most favorite braid hack (actually are there any other braid hacks? if so, fill me in. thanks!) It makes thin boring braids turn into these gorgeous model thick braids! For a fishtail braid you literally do the same exact thing! Just braid it normally and pull hair to make it looser. Basically hair magic.

 I tried and tried to make that darn video player bigger than like 1cm x 1cm but it wasn't cooperating with me so sorry it's so teeny tiny. Let me know if this is helpful and always remember- hair spray is your best friend! And babyhairs are the worst. If anyone has any sneaky tips to growing them out or just keeping them tame, let me know pretty please!

    2. This is lovely, although you have a misunderstanding of what french/ dutch braids are. The only difference between a french and dutch braid is that with french, the hair is braided one strand in front of the other as you collect hair, causing it to blend into the scalp, but with dutch its one strand BEHIND the other as you collect hair, causing it to stand out and be more 3d against your scalp. So what you were doing at the beginning of this that you called french braiding WS actually dutch braiding, and from there it was just a hair style. Just so you know, as you're teaching others. 😊

    4. Oops! Haha yeah I have no idea what the difference is. I guess a French braid was just a French braid to me and a thick braid was Dutch. :)

    1. it just takes lotsssss of practice and patience haha trust me! You just have to try it couple times and see how your hair reacts (sounds weird but everyone's hair kind of does its own thing with different hair styles)

  6. I might have to give this one a shot. My hair is always too thin for most tutorials. Drives me crazy!

    Thanks for sharing.
