Hair Challenge 2016 Link Up #5

Another Wednesday, I can't believe we are on week 5 of the Hair Challenge! I did a few new hair styles, and even sort of made one up on my own, go me!

I was trying to create this braid...I had seen other videos braid three strands and then hold onto one strand and push the other two up strands up...but her way is way easier, going to try that one next week. Obviously this was a fail and I took it out immediately. Actually I was practicing before bed to see what I was going to do in the morning...yikes! That was not it!

Here are the ones that actually worked. Thursday to work I did a rope twist braid, simple and gets my hair out of my face for work.

Friday I had the day off, so I actually had time to do my hair...yep did a fancy updo/prom do for a regular Friday of preschool drop off and pick up, along with going to Disneyland. I got this from Mindy from Cute Girls Hairstyles, isn't that where I get most of my styles?

Saturday I did the same thing as above, but a braid version. I forgot to take a picture...oops. I actually tried something else, and Mr. said, nope that doesn't look good, too many fly aways. I think it would have been a cool hair style if there wasn't so many fly aways...I'll get more on that later...

Sunday it was rainy and I had errands and dirty hair. I love the fullness of it. Wish I had gotten a better picture. Darn, next time!

Monday to work I did this. I was running late and needed something quick and easy.

I basically took two sides of my hair and tied it with a hair tie and then flipped it inside out a few times to create the twist.

Yesterday I worked from home and had to get to PT and had dirty hair, so I needed to put it up. I wanted to do something fun, but ran out of time and did this in about 3 minutes. I tried the upside down French braid, but it did it too loose, so next time I'll make it a little tighter, I only ended up bringing in two sides of hair, which makes for a small braid. By the time I put it in the pony tail and loosened it up, it almost disappeared. I did like how it kept all of the lose hairs from under the pony tail swept up.

If you look very closely you can see the French braid a little bit.

Back to my fly away issue, which you can see here in that messy-ish bun up there. I'm on a mission to find the right products for fly aways and styling in general. I watch all of these hair tutorials online and you know what's missing? The products they used BEFORE they styles. None of them have fly aways...what?! Is it just me noticing this? I might be slightly sensitive to it. Anyway...Here's my first round of products.

Let's break it down...I'll start with the KMS. I sort of have no idea what any of this stuff does, but have heard it mentioned here and there, so thought I would give it a try.

I did buy these with my own money, but linked products are affiliates and I will receive a small commission if you click on it. Thank you for your support!
