good morning, everyone! today we are going to be talking about hair and how to get that textured look. i have naturally wavy hair, but here are a few ways you can add some interest to an everyday look. purple chalk, a little dry shampoo, and a fishtail braid…check it out!

how to achieve the look:

•  spray a little Root Reboot Dry Shampoo to the roots of unwashed naturally textured hair to give it a little lift.

• select a section of hair to fishtail braid & braid section.

• lightly spray a little Root Reboot to the entire braid.

• work braid with fingers to pull apart and give the braid a textured look. you can add in as many braids as you wish to create your own look!

(for best results, make sure to shake the dry shampoo before using!)

p.s. if you’re wondering about the purple hair we used ulta color chalk!

    So gorgeous! And such lovely photos. I wonder if the chalk works on dark hair too?

    Allie Mackin says:

    Ah I wish I had wavy hair. I have what I like to call lumpy hair or really the term is caulicky hair. Not straight, not curly, not wavy which is loose semi uniform waves that fall away from the head (like yours does) I have lumpy uneven waves that cling to my head. I use to have thick lumpy hair, now that I am not in my 20s I have thin lumpy hair. Oh joy! But wowzie this looks awesome on you!

    So laid back, I love it! Every time I try to do the whole messy-pretty thing with my hair, even with dry shampoo and hairspray, it always ends up flat within the hour -_- What do you do to keep the volume?


    HB says:

    Wow, love the texture. I have recently started to grow out my hair to the longest it has ever been in my life and I’ve been concerned with styling options. This is great, thanks for the idea!
