When I was little, maybe 5 years old, my mum took me to the hair dressers and told them to give me what can only be described as a boy haircut. I’ve been scarred ever since. So I’ve been trying to grow my hair long for years now, I usually wuss out and end up getting a big chunk chopped off (never to the extent of the boy haircut that was surreptitiously thrust upon me!). This time I’m determined to have shiny mermaid length hair!! Over the past 6 or so months I think I’ve added about 5-6inches of hair, and that’s with a few trims in between. For me that’s a good growth rate, I reckon it was about 3inches every 6 months before!
Beautiful hair, like so many other things in life, comes at a price. Hair dyes, relaxers, perms, extensions, hot rollers, curling irons and flat-irons all exact a toll on your hair's natural healthy shine. Few things are as frustrating as watching great hairstyles give way to dry, damaged hair. The main requirement for repairing dry hair is that you seal in lots of extra moisture.
After many requests, I finally made a tutorial on how to tie a simple head scarf. It's really, really easy. I did this without looking in the mirror, so that should tell you how easy it is. Let's get started! Start with a large, square scarf. I like my vintage silk scarves because they're soft and not bulky.
Comb your hair carefully to eliminate any tangles or knots. Take some hair from the top of your head. 3. Tie off this hair with a hair elastic.
Side Chignon 1. Using a round brush, blow-dry hair smooth and straight, focusing on the top sections. 2. Once dry, use a large-barrel curling iron to create waves from the ears down. 3.
Something about summer always awakens the inner hippie in me: I never want to shave my legs and I always want to wear my hair in braids. For quite a while now, I’ve been wanting to try a waterfall braid in particular. It’s not much trickier than a French braid, nor does it require a lot of time to make. They’re quite romantic-looking, yet not too Heidi-of-the-Mountains. This waterfall braid took me about five minutes to do after I mastered the art (since I didn’t braid it around my head completely).
