What Is a Goddess Braid?
If you know about classic braids, then goddess braids might not be a very new thing to you. They are a more dense, bold and garnished version of the cornrows. While cornrows are more regular and uniform, goddess braids can be of a multitude of types. There are goddesses braids updo, goddess braids in a bun, goddess braids in a ponytail and much more.

You need to have these while making one of your choices.
- Comb(Wide-toothed and Rat tail)
- Hair extensions( for braiding)
- Sectioning clips
- Hair gel
- Hot water
- First, you need to wash your hair to get ready for braiding
- You then need to use a wide-toothed comb to remove some knots and tangles
- Plan each partition and part your hair accordingly using a rat tail comb
- Leave the particular section of your hair that you’re going to braid first while clipping up the rest sections using sectioning clips
- Pick one large section from your bunch which is as thick as desired.
- Partition your hair extensions into triple equal sides.
- Now you need to put hair extension just at the middle of the hair section that you’ve decided to braid first.
- After combining the hair extensions with your natural one, rub some hair gel on your fingers to sleek down the hair.
- Braids need to be two stitched.
- After you’ve left no hair to add, simply dunk the tip of your braid into hot water to seal it.
