The dutch braid is much like the French braid, only it’s ‘inside out’. If you’ve already mastered French braid, you probably won’t have problems with the dutch braid. The main difference is that you braid the sections of your hair under the braid, instead of crossing them over the top. This technique puts the braid on top of the hair. Dutch braid can be done with 3 or more strands. To make your braid extra thick, you can use hair extensions.
