How To French Braid Hair ? (with Picture Tutorial)

0

The French braid is a gorgeous way of making your hair maintenance free. You can braid your hair and then not have it worry about it again. Many people believe that the French braid is a complicated hairstyle and it’s not. Once you get started, you will see how easy it is and this tutorial is the first step to getting it done.

If you are looking for a hairstyle that will be super beneficial on days when your hair just isn’t working well then try a perfect French braid on for size. Follow these simple steps and you will be on your way to getting that great French braid style:

What You Need to Start

Brush

Hair Elastic

That’s all you need, how simple is that!

1. Make a Start

The first thing you want to do is to brush your hair to make sure that all the tangles are out. The first thing you want to do is to gather the hair at the top of the head and then divide it into three sections. Make sure you start at the hairline and grab enough hair from the top of the head as if you were going to start a regular braid. Divide hair that you are holding into three sections. Make sure you hold the right section into the right hand and likewise the left section in the left hand. The last middle section can be between the thumb and any other finger on either hand.

2. Cross Sections

Now you want to start braiding. It’s easy just cross the right section over the middle section. Now do the same with the left section, while smoothing the hair down as you go along. Make sure that you pull the sections tight as you go along. The last thing you want is for the raid to be loose enough to come apart.

3. Add in Sections

Now before you continue to repeat your cross-over motion, you want to gather a little bit of hair from the head’s right side. Add this new section to what you have. Then cross the now larger piece of the section over the middle section of the braid.

Tip: While you are adding more hair, always make sure that the sections are always roughly equal to each other or your French braid will end up looking lopsided at the end.

4. Continue Adding Hair to the Section

Keep gathering small sections of the remaining hair that you have on the left side and add it to the left-hand section and then cross it over the middle section just like you did with the right side.

Tip: It’s easier to do a French braid with dirty hair because it is not as slippery. Dirty hair is much easier to braid than clean hair.

5. Continue to Add Hair into Cross Sections

In order to finish your braid, you will continue adding hair until you have gathered all the hair into your sections. Finish the bottom of the style with a regular brand.

6. Secure the Braid

Once you have reached the bottom of your braid all you need to do now is to secure the end of the braid with a hair elastic. Wrap it tightly and then you are good to go.

Coloring Your Hair Orange: How To Fix Orange Hair ?

0

If you are looking for a hot new color, then choose orange for a change. It’s a shocking color that really stands out. You won’t find a brighter more eye-catching color than this one.

If you are going to color your hair with a bright shade, then there are a few things that you need to know. Personally, we think that everyone should try a bright shade at least once, but you need to know what you are getting into first.

Here are just a few things we have learned when it comes to bright shades.

  1. It Requires Bleaching Your Hair

There is no possible way to get a bright color without bleaching your hair. Unless you naturally have platinum blonde hair, you are going to have to lighten it up in order for the color to be vibrant. Most fashion colors are only semi-permanent, so they can’t lift the color of your hair. If you try to put a semi-permanent over your dark hair, it won’t do anything. If you are worried about damaging your hair, then a fashion color may not be for you.

  1. Drastic Color Changes Don’t Happen Overnight

Lightening your hair can be damaging, so you need to have your hair in pretty good condition before you start. To avoid a lot of damage to the hair, it’s best to take the bleaching process slowly. If you have a hair appointment, then try to avoid straightening to curling your hair for a few weeks to avoid damaging it further.

  1. Don’t Bleach It Yourself

It’s very important that you make sure that you have a professional bleach your hair, do not do it yourself. You run the risk of totally destroying your hair and that’s the last thing that you want to do. Trying to correct a bad bleaching job can be almost impossible to fix, so always go to a professional for these things.

  1. Products Are your New Best Friend

When you start bleaching your hair and using fashion colors, the best thing that you could do is to invest in hair care products. The kind of products that help to minimize color fading and help to replenish moisture back into the hair from the bleaching. Salon quality shampoos and conditioners will help to keep your hair as healthy as possible.

  1. The Color Will Fade

So now you have your bright orange hair and you are walking around like you are on cloud nine. Then after a few weeks, you notice the color has faded. When it comes to fashion shades there is a lot more upkeep involved then there would be with normal colors. It’s a little more high-maintenance. So as long as you are okay with constantly adding color to it, then you’ll be fine because you will have to get used to the fact that the color is always fading. When orange fades, it gets a really ugly coppery color so you may have to color it every week.

  1. You Will Have to Wash Your Hair in Cold Water

You will have to get used to washing your hair in cold water in order to preserve the color as much as possible. The cold water helps to prevent the color from fading.

  1. Some Colors Don’t Come Out

When it comes to fashion shades, they can be a little tricky and some of them won’t come out of the hair. We don’t mean that they will never come out, but it could take a while. The only way to get colors out that like to stick around is to either bleach it again or put a darker color over top of it.

  1. Prepare for Your Color to Be Everywhere

We are talking towels, shirts, pillow cases and your bathtub. Fashion colors fade easily and that means the colors is dripping somewhere when the hair is wet. It will stain anything white, your towels, or the pillow case that you sleep on. The best investment you could ever make is black towels and black pillow cases.

  1. Some People Won’t Like It

The thing about fashion colors is it brings about a lot of attention and some of it isn’t going to be good. Some people love fashion colors and you will receive a lot of compliments from them. But there are still some people that think it’s “too wild” or “attention-seeking” and they will not have a compliment to throw your way. You have to be prepared for people who aren’t going to like your hair.

That’s the best advice that we can give for anyone that wants to try out a fashion shade. Go in with all the knowledge that you can and do your research. This is not the kind of shade that you do yourself. It’s important that you go to a professional because they know how to handle different types of hair and the things that can go wrong when bleaching. So, don’t make the mistake of doing it yourself, get professional salon service when it comes using fashion shades.

Stick to these rules and you are sure to be eye-catching this summer with your bright orange hair. Fashion colors are incredibly fun to try, and we hope that everyone tries them out.

  1. Hot Orange

A hot orange is a great color for those that want to feel like rock stars. This is the kind of color that is sure to fade quickly so be prepared for a lot of upkeep to keep the color looking amazing. Beautiful!

You’re already in the wild zone if you like the shaved look so make it orange! If you like wonderful styles, then you are sure to want to go and get the shaved mohawk look. The bold oranges are so wonderful together. She looks like she has a lot of fire inside of her.

3. Dark Orange

There are many different shades of orange that you are sure to love. This color is surely a little closer to red and it’s a great shade. If you want a different orange that isn’t more of a neon color, then you might want to try this color out.

4. Deep Orange

These coppery shades are always beautiful and they definitely come close to getting red. If you want a sexy color, then you might try this shade because it’s truly a remarkable color. You’re sure to be turning heads all year long with this shade.

You have to have a strong personality and badass style to pull off a color like this one. This girl looks like she has complete control over those curly locks and this color certainly suits her.

8. Bright Orange

You don’t get much brighter than this orange. It’s truly electrifying. I love that it’s really dark and then it goes really bright. It goes from a shockingly bright shade to almost white and it’s glorious. Because the natural hair color is so dark, the bleaching may have to be done in stages to prevent damage. If you do all the bleaching all in one day, then you are sure to cause too much damage and the hair could start falling out. It’s best to do it slowly and have multiple salon visits.

9. Rusty Orange

89 Striking Goddess Braid Ideas That You Are Sure to Love

0

If you are looking for a low maintenance style that is also gorgeous, then you want to look at the goddess braid. It is the kind of style that will make you feel like a goddess. You may think that these are just your standard cornrows, but you would be wrong. There is a difference between the cornrow braid and the goddess braid. These are the new and improved cornrow braid and they are so much better.

This should be your go to style if you are looking for something glamorous and wonderful. They are absolutely beautiful and the best part is they allow you to have a hairstyle that you don’t have to worry about for months. If you need to give your hair a break because it’s been damaged or over-treated, then getting goddess is a great way to allow your hair to breathe a little. It gives your hair a break from all the styling that causes damage to your hair.

If you take the time to scroll through social media sites, you will see just how popular the goddess braid actually is. Again, they do look familiar to the cornrow braid, but they are so much cooler. So how are the goddess braids different?

The difference between a goddess braid and a cornrow braid is that the goddess braid is a much thicker and larger braid. They aren’t so much flat against the scalp; they are larger, so they become more raised on the head. Many people will style the goddess braid in a crown design which is an elegant and glamorous style.

If you are looking for a simple style that is no nonsense, then you are going to love the goddess braid. You are sure to love the convenience of the hairstyle because once it’s done, you don’t have to worry about it again for months. That’s how awesome they are!

A lot of the styles require a lot of hair, so if you don’t already have long, thick hair, then you will have to consider getting extensions. Only then will you be able to try out these amazing goddess braids. You should know that if you normally have curly, frizzy or kinky hair, then you should add in a leave in conditioner to your hair before it is braided to avoid damage. Hair of that texture is always a little more fragile and you don’t want to do anything that’s going to cause further damage to your hair. The leave in conditioner will certainly help in that area.

If you want the braided look, you will have to consider going to a professional stylist. This isn’t the kind of style you can do yourself and we wouldn’t recommend you have a friend do it unless they are a professional. Braiding takes time and a professional will know how to do it quickly without a lot of damage.

45 Sexy Senegalese Twist Hairstyles

0

Senegalese twists are an increasingly popular hairstyle. Not only are they super cute and easy to maintain, but they are also an excellent protective style for anyone who has transitioning hair or is simply looking for a style that will help their hair grow and remain in a healthy state. In addition to the aforementioned great aspects of Senegalese twists, this particular hairstyle offers endless styling options from a top knot to a classic half-up half down style.

Not only are Senegalese twists extremely stylish, but they can be worn just about anywhere. They can be worn in the workplace if kept neat and clean, they can be worn out on the town, and because of their protective nature, they can be worn year round, protecting the hair from the harsh cold of the winter or at the beach or pool during the summer.

The installation process for Senegalese twists is fairly easy.  First, the hair is thoroughly washed, conditioned and blow-dried. After this, the hair is then parted into sections, hair extensions are added, and a two strand twist is created. In comparison to traditional box braids, Senegalese twists are significantly faster to install as instead of a three strand braid, a stylist is simply doing a two strand twist. After the entire installation is completed, the ends of the hair can be sealed by either using hot water or burning the ends with an open flame. Depending on the style and length of the twist, this method can vary. The entire installation process for Senegalese twists can take anywhere from 5 to 10 hours depending on the desired length, thickness of each individual twist, and how many stylists are working in your hair at one time.

If you don’t want to sit and have each individual two strand twist hand created, there is an alternative installation process which is rapidly gaining popularity. This new installation method is the crotchet method, in which your hair braided into a pattern, and pre-packaged Senegalese twists are literally weaved into your hair with a special tool. Check with your stylist to see if this is a reasonable option for you as the wear time can be affected by using this method.

Senegalese twists can last for quite some time, and that’s part of what makes them such a great option for a protective style. Depending on the size of the twists and how well the hairstyle is maintained, Senegalese twists can last anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks. Senegalese twists allow hair to regain strength, grow, and protects natural hair from elements and heat products which would be potentially harmful to your hair.

The maintenance for Senegalese twists is fairly easy and very similar to that of traditional box braids. Since your scalp is exposed, it’s important to remember always to keep your scalp clean and moisturized, which in turn can promote healthy hair growth. Products like coconut oil, leave in conditioner, or other scalp moisturizers can be used during the wear time of Senegalese twists. There are many oils that can keep your hair moisturized while you have Senegalese twists in. Coconut oil is a great light smelling choice and helps keep your hair nourished and braids shiny. My personal favorite is castor oil, as I tend to have a drier scalp. Castor oil is great for those with sensitive and dry scalps, and a little bit goes a long way.

Braid spray, which can be purchased at just about any beauty supply store, is also a great option if you want to keep your Senegalese twists looking fresh and neat. If for some reason you can’t find any braids spray, olive oil and water in a spray bottle will work just fine. Senegalese twists also can be kept looking fresh if you wear a silk scarf or bonnet to bed as cotton pillowcases can dry out and frizz hair while you sleep. Lastly, contrary to popular belief, it’s completely ok for you to wash your Senegalese twists as oil and dirt can build up on your scalp and on the twists.

When it’s time to take down your Senegalese twists, the uninstallation process is fairly easy and significantly quicker than taking down traditional box braids. If the ends of the Senegalese twists have been sealed by burning, simply snip the ends and unravel the two strand twist. The same process can be used regardless of how the ends were sealed, and the entire take down process can take anywhere from 6 to 8 hours, depending on the length of the twists and how many people are helping you take down your Senegalese twists.

Here are some tips that you can use when taking down your Senegalese twists. These can be helpful especially if you’re working alone during the uninstallation process.

  • Cut the twist where your hair ends. Be careful and make sure that you’re not cutting any of your own hair!
  • Spray the twist with a mixture of water and olive oil. It helps soften up the twist which can make it easier to come out.
  • After you have removed the extension from your hair, comb any knots out right away, and then either spray with olive oil and water mixture or apply a leave-in This will make it easier for you to detangle your hair when you have to wash it.
  • Don’t be alarmed at any shed hair. Remember, your hair has been twisted for weeks, and there’s bound to be some shedding.
  • Either braid or tie up hair that you’ve already taken out. That way, you don’t get anything tangled.
  • Be patient! It’s a long process, but in the end, you’ll see how healthy your hair is and be proud of how much it grew.

As you can see in the many pictures in this post, there is an infinite amount of ways to style your Senegalese twists for any occasion; whether you’re going to work, going out on the town, or simply hanging around the house.

There are many benefits for those who choose to use Senegalese twists as a protective style. Since your natural hair is greatly protected from damaging elements such as heat, chemicals, dry air, and everyday exposure, your hair has a great opportunity to grow and regain strength during the wear time of your Senegalese twists. Another great benefit of wearing Senegalese twists as a protective style is the low amount of maintenance that the style requires. Due to the low amount of manipulation that this protective style requires on a daily basis, many are attracted to it because it helps them save time in the morning before work or while ready to go out for the night. One final reason why Senegalese twists are a great choice for those seeking a protective style, it because it allows your hair to get where you want it to be; meaning, for those who are transitioning from relaxed to natural or for those bolder folks who have undergone the “big chop”, Senegalese twists is a great long-term option while waiting for your hair to fully transition, grow, and regain strength.

This classic spin on an already fabulous protective style is great for anyone who’s traditional but likes a little extra added flair.

The only downside to having your Senegalese twists installed in a cornrow fashion is that the style may not last as long as traditional twists. Why? Cornrows typically don’t last very long because once your hair starts to grow out, the plait may separate (for lack of a better term) from your head, creating a messy and possibly unkempt look. However, this particular installation style for Senegalese twists is a great short term or special occasion option.

When did Senegalese twists become a popular hairstyle? Celebrities such as singers Brandy and Alicia Keys have often been seen sporting some kind of braids or twists, and Brandy has often worn them during public appearances. There’s no surprise that with this kind of exposure, there would be a surge in people who wanted to use this as a protective style for their own hair. Very similar to the traditional box braid, the art of hair braiding and twisting is something that goes back thousands of years. Many cultures in Africa used hair braiding to tell stories, or to signify status such as Ancient Egypt. This art is something that was thankfully passed down throughout the generations and continues to remain a staple in the art of styling hair.

With an open mind and a talented hair stylist, many different styles can be achieved when installing your Senegalese twists. From classic traditional cornrows that start at the front of the head and go straight back, to crazy designs with intricate twists and turns.Decorations can also be added to your Senegalese twists for some extra flair. These simple yet stylish beads can be found in just about any local beauty store. Since they’re made of plastic, they only cost about $2-$3 for a pack of 15 beads. Depending on how many beads you want throughout your hair, two or even three packs should be good enough.
While thicker Senegalese twists are a great and bold fashion choice, they don’t last quite as long as traditional smaller Senegalese twists since they are not as tight. The recommended wear time for the thicker twists is no more than five weeks with the proper maintenance and care. For those who choose to rock their Senegalese twists in a top knot, just a note of caution. Be careful how tight you make your bun and these styles can often pull on your edges, causing them to thin and eventually fall out. Make sure to keep all of your hair but especially your edges clean and moisturized to maximize growth during the wear of your twists.  A two tone or ombre style is possible when choosing colors for your Senegalese twists.  Senegalese twists are great for anytime of year as they serve as a cute protective style option and has limitless options when it comes to daily styling. Those of any age, race, or professional background can also enjoy Senegalese twists are they are classy, professional, and versatile.   Senegalese twists fit just about any fashion sense or personality.

Due to the low maintenance required to upkeep this style, it’s also a great option for those with a busy schedule and who find it difficult to find time to style their hair on a daily basis.

If you are looking for a new style that is convenient and beautiful for this summer then look no further than the box braid. It’s not only a gorgeous style but it will last for months so that you don’t need to fuss about your hair at all. It’s got to be one of the most popular styles for African-American women because of the convenience. Big box braids are rich and full, not to mention they always look pretty cool. The look is presentable for everyday wearing as well as a great look for events. It’s an effortless style that you are really going to love during those hot summer months.

Box braids have been around since the 90’s but the thing with this style is that they never get old, in fact they are becoming a gorgeous classic that never dies. They are back in style more stronger than ever with some new updates in the design of the box braid. This hairstyle is an iconic look, one that makes a statement and brings pleasure to the wearer. We know this because celebrities like Solange and Beyoncé have been seen wearing the look and they are fashion icons to be sure. They are just a few celebrities that have been seen wearing the gorgeous looks and they probably do it because it’s an easy look to wear while on tour.

Many people wear the box braids as a downdo because it allows for everyone to see the true magnificence of the style and who wouldn’t want to, they are absolutely stunning. The chunky style is one that you are going to want to try out for yourself. A standard box braid is one that has “a few braids from the front section above your forehead and twists them to fit behind your ear.” Many people also wear the style as an updo where they will have the chunky braids put into a bun. Really, the sky is the limit to what you can achieve with the style. The box braids can be designed into fishtails swept off to the side to really rock the summer season this year. If you don’t want excessive bulkiness on top of the head, then you might want to try the partial updo where half the hair is left down while the other half is pulled up.

If you are thinking of the style, there are a few things to consider.  It is a low-maintenance look that can take you right through those summer months. When it comes to maintaining your style, you can use light shampoo for your scalp to prevent any damage to the look. Another hair care product is light peppermint oil which will also help to prevent breakage from the braids. The great thing about box braids is it will give your hair a break from chemical ingredients and the hot styling rods we typically use to style our hair.
