Running Late Hairstyles



Again, SO many ways you can braid your hair. They simply add variety to the everyday plain and simple looks. The easiest are the classic, French and fishtail. I could never get myself into doing a dutch, waterfall or 5-strand braids like that. my eyes squint, seriously.

Tricks for fuller Hair



*please correct me if they are called something else.*
Bumpits or hair inserts. Yes. suitable for people with less or voluminous hair altogether; if you have flat, less-volumed hair, it adds volume and if you are blessed with thick voluminous hair, they help you style your hair in a more chic way

Hullow Dry Shampoo

Yup! Say hello. Worried about getting greasy hair and washing up every other day? Dry shampoo soaks up excess oil and adds volume and texture. My personal favorites are:
Loreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo

Batiste Instant Hair Refresh Dry Shampoo in Cherry

Batiste Instant Hair Refresh Dry Shampoo Plus- Divine Dark

IGK Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo- First Class


Say bye bye to hair styling tools and embrace your real hair texture with hair mousse. Rock those locks or waves by crunching your hair a little while its wet. Take an egg sized amount of mousse on the palm of hair and work it all the way through your hair. My favorites are:

OUAI Soft Mousse
Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam
Finesse Curl Defining Mousse
Tresemme Thermal Creations Volumising Mousse

Let air dry

Oh yes! For once, try letting your hair air dry. your hair will feel/ look such that you will not regret having let it air dry. and think of all the time you would save on the styling.

Heat Protectant

If there is a need of heat styling, do NOT neglect heat protectant sprays. Just get the one that doesn not leave your hair looking all flat and sticky.

Paul Mitchell Heat Seal
TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Protective Spray
TRESemmé Expert Selection Heat Protection Spray, Keratin Smooth

Frizzy Hair!


Use products to tame

Among the products mentioned above plus any other that you feel comfortable using, Go ahead. Anybody with frizzy hair should NOT leave their hair at the mercy of air and atmosphere. Use hair taming products. your hair will thank you!

Finish with colder water

While everybody loves a good long warm shower, it is advisable that you finish you hair washing with cold water. it improves blood circulation around the scalp area. What it does more is that it prevents excessive hair breakage, prevents hair from moisture depriviation and leaves it looking all shiny and tamed.

SKIP heat styling

We all know its addictive. and we also know we cannot go our entire life without heat styling. But lets just skip it till its Absolute-f***king-ly necessary.

That’s all i have for now. hoping that this helps all those struggling with their hair looking good everyday.

Bro Tip: Keep hydrated. Your hair is 70% Water.
