I know I'm super late on the dutch braid trend, but I've always struggled with doing my hair. Not that I never wanted to do it — believe me, I always try — but because quite frankly, I just suck at it. It never does what I want it to do, but I still try. Curling my hair is my obvious fall back as you've seen so many times. That, I can do. I've been trying my hands at braids this year and I'd like to think that I've mastered quite a few. Then I thought, everyone has these dutch braids and now I want to do dutch braids.
The thing is, I was always under the impression that a dutch braid is just the opposite of doing a french braid. I thought, great! I was never good at doing french braids, nor have done them a lot, but I've braided my hair plenty of times, I'll just go the opposite way and that's that.... except I get getting the results of a French braid and couldn't understand why! That is until I watched multiple youtube tutorials and realized that I must of learned to braid the opposite way when I was younger. At least this meant that dutch braids actually come more naturally to me now that I finally understand them haha!
