Coconut Oil Hair Treatment

Coconut Oil Hair Treatment

Coconut oil is great for soooo many things! Today I’m sharing how I do my coconut oil treatments at home. Since it’s Sunday it would be a great day for you to do this, especially if you’ve been heat styling your hair all week. (This includes the blow dryer) 
Benefits of this treatment:
*help your hair grow longer and stronger
*super conditioning
*makes hair shinier
*anti-dandruff treatment
*de-frizz
*repair damaged hair
*repair heat damage
SO… why wouldn’t you do this once a week!
I get my coconut oil from my local…. Walmart :)! You can pretty much find it anywhere now! 
Below you can see it comes in a jar and is in a solid form. You can put it on your hair this way but I’m going to show you an easier (to me) way to put it in you hair. I feel this way the oil is easier to disperse.

First I put the stopper down in my sink, set the jar inside, and fill my sink up with HOT water.

Fill the water up to the top of the label.

 It should look like this when it’s ready! ^^^
(No need to shampoo)
Just,
Dampen your hair! 
*** Damp means you have gotten it wet and really towel dried it ***
Pour a small amount in your hand.
Then run it through your hair with your fingers, you can even use a comb to evenly distribute it.
*if you have super oily hair already, don’t put this on your roots*

Then, clip it on top of your head and do all of your household Sunday chores. (like looking on Pinterest and Instagram for hours!) 
I usually do a minimum of 20 minutes. You can do the whole day if you want, it won’t hurt!
When you are done you may need to shampoo 3 times to completely rinse all the oil out. 
I hope you all have a more moisturized rest of your weekend!

Rompers and Fake French Braiding

Rompers and Fake French Braids

Awe, puppy love! This is Maggie (right) and Tripp (left) our lab puppies  🙂
Today I’m talking about rompers and fake french braiding. Yes, I made that up. Ha.
I saw this hair on someone during the New York Fashion Week somewhere on instagram when I was stalking the models. I was wondering how I could master this look and then teach you guys how. So I played and came up with this. It looks like a “fake french braid” right?! It’s so easy!
Basically all you do is grab your bang area or the top area of your hair and put in a small clear pony tail. With that pony tail (a loose one) you will separate the top part (before the pony) into two pieces, grab the actual tail and turn it into that hole you just made with the top, and tighten. 
Then you will grab the next horizontal section of hair and do the same while putting the top pony into this pony. Continue down your head until you have reached the bottom. If you have long hair you can leave it down, if it is shorter you can loop it up like I did. 
I love this hairstyle especially if you are going somewhere a little fancier and have zero time to schedule a hair appointment or let alone make it to the salon. Easy fix!
About my romper:
I found this in Target! click here to shop. I love Target, I can stay in there for hours. I like this romper because unlike all the other ones I’ve found this one does not give me a wedgie haha! Yes, I said that. It’s also super long so you can wear it with heels. I also feel like you have to be supermodel tall to wear a romper and I can tell you I am not supermodel tall and I was fine!
Let me know if you would like to see a tutorial of this hairstyle! 
Hang in there it’s almost Friday!

Halo Braiding

Halo Braiding

Thank you to my crutching (literally) husband for taking these pics of me … muah! 
He just had knee surgery and was walking up and down our land. Yes!! Our land that we are about to build on.

This is one of my favorite braids! It is soooo easy, and especially for dirty hair. Here I have an off center part, in the video you will see I had parted in the middle. 
I also just wore a T-shirt, showing you don’t have to dress up to dress your hair up :).
I also have this simple green denim dress I grabbed off the clearance rack at Urban Outfitters, to show that you can do so many different looks by adding different pieces with it! Denim dresses are so easy and fun!
Here’s the Halo Braid tutorial I have made for you guys. I hope you like it!
