Looking for a fiercely fashionable look to try? This week Lumka teaches you how to do double French braids.

Zendaya, Leigh-Ann Pinnock and Alesha Dixon love double French braids: they’re cute but also really sexy and stylish.

Whether you use extensions or have long enough hair, here’s how you can rock French braids:

Relax your hair

Braided hairstyles like this don’t usually last too long but to make the most of your money, make sure that your hair is in good condition to begin with.

Relax your hair with Dark & Lovely Fat Protein Bodifying Relaxer (R28,95, Pick ‘n Pay). This relaxer adds volume to the hair (instead of making it excessively silky) so it is easier to braid. Get your braids done at the salon on your first try, then all you’ll have to worry about is maintenance.

Maintain your look

Apply MPL Hair Oil Sure To Gro (R18, Clicks) to your hairline daily. This will keep the edges looking great.

Also spray on ORS Protect and Shine Sheen Spray (R46,95, Clicks) for a healthy shine.

Important: Remember not to keep your hair braided for longer than three weeks.
