Hair chameleon Kim Kardashian has taken to her website and app to let us in on how she manages to achieve perfect braids every time - and you'll never guess what she uses.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is loving the plaited look lately and in every single Instagram snap she shares with us, there isn't a single hair out of place.

Kim's braids also look much thicker and and heaps more glamorous than ours, no matter how many hands, cans of hairspray or drops Argan oil we may deploy in the morning - and she has put it down to just two things.

In a clever little tutorial the reality beauty shared recently, her hairstylist Justine Marjan (Jen is in Pah-rih, tending to Kendall FYI) can be seen separating and clipping her hair into four sections. But as she begins to construct the braid, she weaves in teeny tiny synthetic loose hair extensions (we love Beauty Works) and secures the ends with a clear hairband.

We know what you're thinking. Hair extensions? That's a bit obvious right?

Well, in the ten minute clip Justine takes her hairstyling game to the very next level and reaches for Colour Wow's Root Concealer, £28.50.

"After I've secured the braid, I'll use a small amount of the Colour Wow Root Concealer to fill in any partings that may look a little bit too loose," Justine tells the camera as she dusts Kim's parting, her hairline and the underside of the braid (just at the roots) with a little bit of the powder.

Justine revealed that this step is what makes Kim's braids so Instagram-worthy as it gives the illusion of a more lustrous, healthy mane.
