I love the Modena Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner,  they smell divine and are super hydrating. Just a bit of product and my hair is clean, smooth and so easy to comb through. The other standout is the Capri Style-In Conditioner its perfect for a bit of extra moisture when my hair feels dry. Also works great post swim at the pool helps detangle long hair and hydrate.

How To: Create a Fishtail Braid

The team at The Beauty Department have a great how-to video on how to create a fishtail braid. I have been playing with my hair trying to get it right and this video makes it a lot easier to see the step by step process. In just 2 tries I am pretty happy how my braid turned out, now to buy some tiny clear elastics!

The hardest thing about doing a fishtail braid on yourself is getting it started. In this video, I’m giving you one of my favorite secret tricks… start with a clear elastic then cut it out at the end. By starting with a clear elastic at the top, you never have to worry about holding 4 confusing pieces together to get your braid going. You can just go straight into it!

Tools: 2 clear elastics, scissors, patience.

Steps:

For a smoother braid, brush your hair out first. For a messier braid, leave the natural texture and separate the hair with your fingers.
Create a ponytail using a clear elastic.
Split the ponytail into two separate pieces.
Take a piece from the first side and pass it to the 2nd side.
Next take a piece from the 2nd side and pass it back to the 1st side.
Once you’ve finished your braid, go in with your scissors and CAREFULLY cut the clear elastic at the top.
Optional: gently pull on the pieces to loosen it up if you wish!
When you’re fishtail braiding, don’t think too hard! You’re simply making X’s. Also, remember that when you take the little piece from one side and pass it to the other side, you don’t need to keep track of it.
