Hair is such a temperamental thing… not going to lie, sometimes I seriously suspect it to have a mind of its own…
One day – “hey! lets add double the volume just for fun!” it says
Next day – “let’s make that favourite cow lick on top of your head stand almost upright!”
Another day – “I wonder what it’s like to look like medusa – let’s try it out!”
I’ve tried the creams, the products, even hats! But can never seem to stop nature’s practical joke…
BUT, there is one thing… *lean in* that I can almost guarantee your hair will not see coming….
Yes, that’s right, the humble braid is a saviour!
But, there’s only so many times we can redo the pigtails or that pony braid updo
So there’s something easy we can do to shake up the old plait… Let me introduce you to the…
FISHTAIL BRAID: which you can perfect from just a few simple steps!
2. Take a small amount of hair from the outer edge of one of the bunches and bring it over and join it with the other bunch of hair (of course the smaller the clusters of hair you bring over the more detailed the fish tail braid will be)
3. Do the same with the other bunch of hair; taking a small amount of hair from the outer edge of the other bunch and bring it over so it joins the other half of hair. Keeping it tight for a neater braid.
4. Repeat steps 1-2 until you have a fish like tail and tie!
As the braid gets longer be sure to hold onto both bunches tight, so it all doesn’t fall out and stays nice and neat.
Now with this new hair trick up your sleeve, let’s take control of our hair and braid it like a fishtail! No more crazy hair days!
Quick and effective – have fun!
Have you got any other hair dos that save you from that bad hair day?
