Though goddess braids can be created with your own natural hair, you may want to add hair extensions if the length of your hair is short or you want thicker and longer braids. Make sure to use a wide-toothed comb and keep hair sectioning pins handy. Here’s how to create it:
1.Condition your hair thoroughly before braiding it and use a wide-toothed comb to detangle.
2.Using a rat tail comb, part your hairs according to the number of braids you’d like to create. Make sure to clip the remaining section aside (which you are won’t use for braiding) with the sectioning pins.
3.Pick a small section of your hair (it can be a big section depending on how thick you want your braid to be) and start braiding it. Add in the extensions as your braid to give your goddess braid a full long look.
4.Dip the end of the braid in boiling water to tightly seal it.
5.Repeat the process in each of the remaining sections to complete the style.
