Last week, I kicked off my 30-day hair challenge. If you missed part one (how dare you?!), view it here.
Wednesday was my first day back to work after the stomach flu, so I’ll be honest: It wasn’t my best work hair-wise.
French braids to pony.
Notes: I like this style a lot better from the sides than the front. I also didn’t really wear makeup that day, so I kind of looked…still sick. It was definitely one of those “Wow, you look tired.” days.
Sea salt beach waves with a twist.
On day six, my life was forever changed.
Why? I started using this sea salt spray (literally it’s like spraying the ocean on your hair) called Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray.
I have some kind of natural curl/wave (perhaps the remnants from my one and only horrid perm freshman year?), but it usually takes some working/a handful of products to do the whole “scrunching” thing.
Never again, now that I have this surf spray stuff. Literally, I think it’s angels’ spit bottled up and delivered straight from the Heavens.
So anyway, this is from just washing it, spraying the surf spray, doing a little scrunching action, letting it dry a bit and then using the diffuser. Super easy.
With the twist (just on one side):
Notes: Sigh. In love.
Fishtail half crown.
I can’t stop using the surf spray – even if I wasn’t looking for a full-out curly ‘do, I’d use it to give my fine hair a little extra texture, which will prove very helpful in the coming days when I tackle some more intricate braids.
Notes: This guy’s similar to the braided half crown from part one, but I switched it out for a fishtail instead. Fairly easy to execute (I had a little trouble getting them to meet and fasten at the back). May or may not try again.
