Products Used



  • 1

     Start with clean, dry hair and apply CHI Silk Infusion from the midshaft to the ends. Part the hair down the center and separate in three sections from ear to ear (about 1 inch behind the ear).

  • 2

    Braid the back section into a loose braid, gently pulling pieces from the sides of the braid to expand and flatten. Be careful not to dishevel.

  • 3

    Pin a cushion at the nape and cover with the loose braid. Spray CHI Helmet Headlightly.

  • 4

    Repeat Step 2 by braiding the front side sections into loose braids and expanding them. Start just above the ear.

  • 5

    Bring the braided sides to the back. Tuck under the cushion and pin in place. Finish with CHI Shine Infusion spray for a sleek hold.
