Spring is coming next month! I’ve been looking forward to this season because I’m not really a fan of cold weather, nor of wearing my two-three layers of clothes (sorry, I came from an island where it is always sunny…). Spring is a great season where you can see nature, see more of God’s wonderful creation, and enjoy the sun without it being super hot. It’s also great time to go outside and enjoy fun activities with my family!

Today, I’m excited to share a hairstyle hack with all of you. It’s a style that makes me feel “young” and girly-girl, and  I think it’s perfect for Spring. The hairstyle is simple and easy when you use the right tools. I went to my nearest go-to destination, Target  to grab hair tools and accessories for this hairstyle look. If you are a Goody fan like me, you know they make quality products!

Goody_hair_tools_reverse_crown_braid_tutorial_blogger_em_smith_5 Have you heard about the Goody Clean Radiance Oval Cushion Brush? I don’t normally brush my hair, but this brush has changed my hair routine. I have very thick, dull hair. When I first used this brush,  I immediately noticed how my hair looked more beautiful. Even if I skipped using conditioner, my hair seemed more alive, shiny and healthy looking. I found that the copper bristles help to massage the scalp and give back natural moisture. It comes with a cushion pad, which adds comfort while I’m brushing. And I love the white color! Although it’s not recommended to use the brush for blow-drying since the copper bristle may turn hot (ouch!) I love using the Goody Clean Radiance Oval Cushion Brush when my hair is air-dried. This is actually more healthy for your hair, since it is more easily damaged if you brush it when it is wet. Cleaning tips: Dip the bristles in a mixture of lemon juice and water and then wipe the bristles with dry cloth.

So let’s begin to do this simple Reverse Crown Braid:

1). After you brush your hair, section your hair into two and braid each side, securing each braid with Goody Ouchless Elastics.

2). Hold the end of each tail and cross over the braids as shown in the photo.

3). Pull the ends of the braids up. Tilt your head down to keep the braid from falling.

4). Secure the braid by using bobby pins, and the hide the ends of the pigtails underneath the hair.

5). Try to use accessories like headband. I used a Goody headband, which comes in set of either brown or black colors.



Goody Ouchless Elastics is my favorite hair tie  because it won’t snag, and it works great if you have thick hair like mine. Ask my husband -you can find these everywhere in our house! I always like to make sure I keep extra Goody hair ties in my bag/diaper bag, beside my bed, bathroom, etc. I have baby who likes to pull my hair, so better to tie it back or else my hair will become his teether 😉
