This weeks hair tutorial is coming a little late, things have been crazy with packing up to move and we are currently on vacation with my family in California! This is a simple hairstyle that I find myself constantly during through the summer months to reduce the heat on my hair and to keep my bangs out of my face. I love that I can wear it with my hair in a loose bun, pony tail, or even half up with this braid too!
PRODUCTS YOU WILL NEED:
– HerStyler Straightener
– HerStyler Heat Protectant
– Bobby Pins
– Clear Elastic (if you have thick hair)
I started using HerStyler products a few weeks ago and am in love. The heat protectant helps to tame my hair, keep it soft and smooth, and protect it from the heat of the straightener. I love that when I do a thicker portion of hair with the straightener it smooths my hair down at my roots to help it have a sleeker look up top, but let my natural waves still be in full force. I love to really play on my natural waves through the summer time.
STEP BY STEP:
1 – Use about a nickel size portion of HerStyler Heat Protectant. Really focus on where you are going to be putting the straightener on your hair. I put it on my roots and focus on the top layer of my hair first because I am only using the straightener on the top portion to smooth my hair.
2 – Grabbing about 1 1/2 inch sections of hair and focusing on the top layers, run the straightener through your hair.
3 – Go through your ends quickly and gently. If you have any crazy pieces with your natural waves gently go over them with the straightener.
4 – Take a half inch section near your part and bangs and split it into 3 pieces.
5 – Dutch french braid until your temple and then finish off with a regular 3 strand braid.
6 – If you have thick hair tie it off with an elastic, if you have thinner hair secure your braid back with a bobby pin. Gently pull the braid out to make it appear fuller.
Finish off with hairspray!
