I didn’t know there was another name for it, so when someone asked me if I knew how to dutch braid, my answer was a pretty quick “uhhh… I don’t think so”.
Once I did a little research, I found out that they are one and the same.
If you know how to french braid, this hair tutorial is easy peasy. Basically, you are just reversing the direction of the braid. If you aren’t quite as experienced in the french braid department, that’s okay!
Step 2: You will begin braiding, but instead of crossing your strands OVER the middle piece, you will be crossing UNDER.
Step 3-4: After you have crossed under twice, take a section of hair from the side and add into one of your strands. You will cross this section of hair UNDER the middle strand.
Step 5-6: Repeat on the next side, making sure to be consistent and continue crossing under the middle strand every time.
Step 7: Continue braiding down.
