Braided Black Hairstyle

To achieve this elegant and dramatic braided style, follow the steps below:


First shampoo hair with MIZANI Botanifying Shampoo which is great for cleansing but gentle enough to use every day as it cleanses the hair and scalp while restoring a natural moisture balance. Then rinse and gently towel blot dry before applying MIZANI Moisturfuse Conditioner which has natural oils and botanical ingredients that deeply moisturise dry hair.


Once the hair has been thoroughly rinsed and towel dried apply MIZANI Thermastrength Style Serum to the hair section by section. Thermastrength Style Serum is a botanically enriched, heat activated serum that protects from heat and helps improve the hair’s tensile strength. So it is great for blowdrying hair straight or using with thermal straighteners. Once the hair has been blow dried straight, secure it in a ponytail at the crown of the head with a band. It’s always best to use a smooth band to reduce breakage. Now apply MIZANI Shimmer Reflects Gel to the length of the ponytail before braiding it. Shimmer Reflects Gel is an alcohol free, medium hold gel that gives a non flaking hold which is essential to achieving this style. Then wrap the braid around the head securing to the head with grips. The longer your hair, the more bends and swirls you can create with the braid. Adding extensions is a great way of immediately creating extra length and therefore more dramatic effect. To finish, mist the style with MIZANI Shimmer Reflects Spritz. The gold mica in the product creates a great natural shine.’
