My hair is straight and kind of long and soft. I usually like to keep it simple, but I occassionally do a plain, classic braid at the back. I braid quite easily because of my hair type, but it also loosens very easily. My friend advised me to gel my hair, but I hate the feeling of gel in my hair, especially since I run my fingers through my hair a lot and I like the silky feeling.

if you put some mousse in before you braid it, it stays in easier, I find.

I realised today, the main reason I'm growing my hair is just so I can braid it properly.

I finally mastered the fishtail plait

It's actually not that hard, I was bored (in a boring conversation) and fiddling with my hair and thought I'd give it a go. Try with a small section near the front of your hair first as practice. Then just split that section in two, take a teeny bit of hair from one section & cross it into the other, then do it the other way round and just carry on. Ok I'm rubbish at explaining, sorry! I find it's easiest with straight hair rather than curly/wavy hair

loonaka ha! I've been growing my hair for a 2 years now, it's still not very long!

Fishtails look really really complicated.
