- StumbleUpon Tricks + Treats: Cascade Braid with Sarah Lockhart Hello, dear readers! This is Sarah from Sweetestnest, and I could not be more excited to add a style post to Elsie's parade of Tricks + Treats! I think that braids are one of the most versatile and easy hairstyles to wear during Autumn. They are textured and seemingly unintentional, or smoothed and polished. Today, I'm sharing the cascade/waterfall braid with you. We decided to use it for a halo shape! Step One: Begin with a standard 3 strand braid. Step Two: After 3 or 4 weaves, drop a strand. It really is that easy! * If you pull at strands as you go, you can get an even more defined braid shape (like Elsie's)! Thanks, Sarah! ps... here are a few sneak peeks from our shop today!

Or that the mild acidity in lemon is an effective—and gentler—alternative to chemical-laden products? For All Hair Types "The [raw] egg is really the best of all worlds," says Janice Cox, author of Natural Beauty at Home. To Use: For normal hair, use the entire egg to condition hair; use egg whites only to treat oily hair; use egg yolks only to moisturize dry, brittle hair, Cox says. Photo by Shutterstock. For Dull Hair Styling products (as well as air pollution) can leave a film that both saps moisture and dulls shine—but dairy products like sour cream and plain yogurt can help reverse this damage.

Elephant trapped in a Hole Some might ask how this elephant got in this hole. Cow stuck in a Pole This one really makes you wish you could hear the thoughts of animals ala Dr. Alligator (or Crocodile?) Man, Avon is really getting desperate for new reps.
