How to do passion braids
Passion braids are easy to do especially because they’re done using the knotless braiding method.
Start by parting clean and stretched hair into your desired sizes.
Apply shine n jam at the root of the hair in order to get a sleek/clean look and to get a proper hold.
Start by braiding the hair like you would with a normal natural hair braid until your base is formed.
Take the prestretched braiding hair and continue feeding in small amounts gradually as you’re braiding the hair.
As you move along the braid, take the freetress waterwave hair and add it to the mix.
Remember to loosen your hold as you move along the length of the braid to make the end process where you achieve the desired look easier.
After your braid is done, start loosening both the waterwave braiding hair and freetress hair using your hands by lightly pulling it.
The end result should be something like this. A messy/butterfly/fish braid look.

DIY Passion braids
The DIY passion braids route is equally as simple because they’re Knotless and don’t take too long to do.
There are two methods you can use for diy passion braids, the crotchet method and the method in part 1.
The only difference is that in the crotchet method, rubber bands are used and a crotchet needle is used to loop the hair in before you start braiding it.
You can use either methods depending on whether you want the medium sized simple passion braids or the jumbo messy Knotless passion braids.
