What I love most about this particular fishtail braid method is that the woman didn’t have to straighten her hair just to have it blend with the synthetic hair. A lot of times I feel like a lot of natural hair women feel like they cant achieve the fishtail braid look because their hair might be too thick or curly to achieve a smooth braided look. That;s where making sure you keep your hair fully moisturized and a little on the damp side while trying to intertwine your hair with the synthetic hair will help blend it better. When trying to match color it’s important to try and go with a two toned color of synthetic hair if you hair is highlighted.
