TEE: Piperlime // LIPSTICK: NARS ‘Heat Wave’

Hey gals! Today I have a new hair how​-to and this one is a favorite of mine! I love tying my hair up in ponytails on days when my hair is greasy and a​ couple of days old​ or not working with me​. This is an easy way to spice up a regular ponytail! So here are the steps:

1. Apply TRESemmé Platinum Strength ​​Heat Protectant ​Spray​ (which will protect your hair from all the damaging effects from the heat!) and curl your hair – I used a flat iron for my curls! (T​his step is,​ of course,​ optional if you prefer to have a straight pony instead! 🙂 )

2. With a middle part, take one side and begin doing a dutch braid incorporating all the hair from the crown forward. Repeat that on other side.

3. ​ Mist TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold ​​Hairspray on the braid ​ to set it in place​ and then begin to pull each piece out making the braid look fuller and bigger. Do this ​on ​the entire length of the braid and repeat on other side. (​The hairspray will help you form the braid how you want it ​but with a flexible hold​!)

4. Grab the braids and remaining hair and tie all of it into a ponytail and then take a small section of hair and wrap around the ponytail to hide any elastics.

5. Once you have done that​,​ you can finish ​off ​by ​misting TRESemmé​ ​Smooth & Silky No Frizz ​Shine Spray ​for added shine ​and voila! You are done!

    P.s I read your recent post on Hair Growth and you mentioned there is a sun protectant product for hair. I have been looking everywhere for one and can’t find anything. Do you know of one?
