Who doesn’t love getting things done at the first try? Like, throwing a piece of paper in the garbage can as a basketball player and it goes in and you say to yourself goal. What does this have to do with hairstyles? Well, Loves: everything! Ever tried to make the perfect messy bun, low ponytail and low braid at the first try? Simple hairstyles to go and simplicity is my life motto without a doubt!
My favorite hairstyle after wearing it loose is a messy bun. And I confess: it does not always look pretty at my first try. When it does, it definitely feels like I threw that piece of paper in the garbage can the first try. Goal! I like how it suits my oval face and when I left a pluck of hair over my ears. Having long hair helps a lot with this hairstyle, but also when I didn’t wash it for two days. It gives it more volume, at least with me.
With my oval face I can do a lot of hairstyles. Separation on the side of my head and putting my hair in a low side ponytail, is one of them. I love how easy this hairstyle is! I twist my ponytail in my hand like one big curl. It gives that extra flair and volume to the ponytail. What I like about this hairstyle, is that it looks at the front like I have a short pixie cut and then I turn around, hello ponytail!

Oh my gosh! I tried for the first time hair flip in extensions. Yes, me! I never thought I would do it because it never crossed my mind. Or rather I should say that the only crazy thing I did to my hair is cutting it short. No, not an extreme pixie cut but from the middle of my back to the end of my neck, like an A-line bob. This was two years ago and since then I’m letting my hair grow back. I only cut the dead-ends and that’s it. So when I got the opportunity to try hair extensions I said yes!
In my hair I’m wearing the layered deep dark brown synthetic hair. It is 60 cm long and weighs 160 grams it also has a wavy structure. You have to attach the hairpiece with a wire. It sounds crazy but it is possible! The hair extension has a wire on top of the left until right ends of the hair extension. You flip it on top of your head like a hairband and with a tail comb you flip your hair over the wire. Simple, easy and quick! The wire is thin and transparent, perfect because you can’t see it in your hair. Very glamorous, whoop!
I chose on purpose a wavy structure the reason behind it is that I never style my hair in all the way straight. I prefer a natural stroke and with these hair extensions my hair naturally blends with the synthetic hair. What I also love is that they are easy maintainable. You can comb, style, curl and wash it. As long you comb it from the bottom to the top, use a heat protector first when you want to style or curl it. Never use a hair tool that is higher than 160 degrees! Let the hair tool no longer than 8 seconds in your hair and last but not least wash it in lukewarm tap water and fabric softener. Yes, the one that you wash your cloths with. Let it soak for five minutes then rinse it off with lukewarm tap water and squeeze out excess water from the hair. When you are done with the ‘’hair bath’’ add a number of drops from a serum or hair oil and pat it dry with a towel before you let it lay or hang to dry naturally.
From the moment I got in my hair I felt like a mermaid. My hair had suddenly length and volume! When I opened the package I was a bit sceptical about the hair colour. Even though my hair is dark brown I didn’t know how it would look on synthetic hair. So when I flipped it in my hair my sceptical thought flew away when I saw a smile on my face! I take good care of my hair and surprise myself with a new hairdo once in a while is just amazing!

I’ve been taking more care of my hair. I swear by Argan oil. This is truly my golden elixir! I use it daily, when I finish with showering and I apply it after I style my hair.
I did a blogpost before about Argan oil. It has many benefits that will help to protect your hair, to make it healthier and give that natural shine back. It should be in your daily routine to see the difference.
Moroccan women are well known for using natural beauty goodies. Remember my blogpost about rosewater? I use it for my facial routine. Same goes for rosewater, it has many benefits!
Why not mix these goodies together? I used this mix when I went to the beach in Morocco. I wanted to protect my hair from the salty water and the sun. I was so positive about it that I decided to use it more often. As you all know, water and oil does not mix. In this case it doesn’t matter because even though it didn’t truly mix together, the Argan oil was not so oily anymore which makes it perfect for daily use for the ones who don’t prefer oil at all in their hair. Besides a small drop of Argan oil only does not make your hair look like too oily! I use this mix mainly on the ends of my hair to keep it moisturized.
I see and feel that my hair is getting healthier. That I never dyed my hair has to do something with it too. I do style my hair a lot so I’m going to keep using these goodies!
