How to Do Half Up Half Down Stitch Braids in 2022

Quick question: who gave hairstylist Sasha Griffin permission to finish the braiding game today? Whoever you are, I want to say a personal thank you because this half up, half down braided situation looks regal as hell. Not only are stitch braids an effective protective style that can stay intact for weeks, they’re also a pretty versatile braiding method — so it really doesn’t come as a shock that each new iteration of this look is better than the last. In today’s episode of The braidyou will watch how a freshly plaited braid is conjured up. Treat your eyes!

1. Show your scalp some love. Be sure to use an oil treatment on wash day to give your strands and scalp some much-needed moisture. It keeps your scalp dandruff free and your braids nice and smooth.

2. Detangle your hair properly. I know detangling can be a chore, but don’t stress – using a leave-in conditioner (like one of the top-rated options below) will make things a lot easier and less painful.

3. Get into edge control. Behind every great baby hair artist is an equally great edge control product. Just make sure you choose a non-flaky formula so your edges stay flawless all day and there are no annoying residues.

4. Don’t forget shine. You know that satisfying feeling when your braids are *finally* done and your stylist sprays them with a finishing spray? Good news – you can recreate that feeling at home by adding a sparkle to your range of products and using it on a daily basis.
