“Tie your hair into two or four braids, depending on the length of your tresses. Now use a flat iron on them for about three to four minutes. Next, run your finger through the braids, and voila you are ready to go. It takes a maximum of 10 minutes and works perfectly.”

10. Add volume to your locks
