These braids take lots of work and patience to do. They need time to be done perfectly. One may need to use some gel for the braids to be tight as possible. Also one can add some serum if they like before braiding to add that shiny look. And as finishing some hard hold hairspray. One is suppose to take very small sections. And starting from the top of the crown, braid your way to the very end. Repeat this until there is no more tiny sections to take and no more hair to braid.
