When it comes to doing my hair I try to plan it around my schedule by trying to maximize each wash. When I get my hair done at salons (I typically go to Blowout Junkie in River North) they do double shampoo and deep conditioning treatments that allow me to go 3 days without washing my hair! (Don't worry I still take body showers everyday) When I first wash it, I wear it blown out and straight. After 1-2 days I typically try to do stick to braids and ponytails. When hair is a couple days old it adds friction so it's easier to work with. The crown braid is super easy (especially my messy version) which can be done with braided pigtails and just a few bobby pins. (I will do a tutorial in the next couple weeks) It's a pretty hair style for weddings, showers, or any type of special event.
