  2. Blow-dry hair using a round brush, focusing on “lifting” hair at the roots.

4. Spray Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Spray to rectangular section of hair to give it more texture. Begin French braid from the front to the back and tie using a clear mini elastic band. For a more voluminous look, gently pull braid apart.

5. Release the rest of your hair and applySuave Professionals Coconut Oil Infusion Treatment Oil for smoothness and shine.

6. Apply the Anti-Humidity Spray throughout hair, which offers hold for frizz resistance even in 95% humidity while giving a brushable finish.


Pro Tip: To give your braids added volume, always cross one strand hair of hair below the other, creating an inverted braid.
