How to Dutch Braid: Step 5 Make sure to smooth out the hair as you add it to the Dutch braid to avoid bumps and large fly-aways (your rat tail comb and hair spray can help if you encounter these.) Try to keep the pieces of hair similar in size as you add them to the braid to keep it looking uniform throughout. If you feel your Dutch braid drifting too much toward your ear or to the back of your head, pull the strands on the opposite side taut to counterbalance the braid and re-center it.
Continue the braid through the length of your hair and add a rubber band about one inch from the bottom. You are now ready to do Dutch braid No. 2.
