Hey Friends,

hair ribbon tiesRibbon Ties

I’ve be terribly obsessive over these hair ties. Ribbon ties, versatile in many ways. I use them to tie my hair in an updo or as a head band. Even better, they come in various colors. My fiancé and I wear them as wrist bands for added style. It’s gentle on the hair, without detangling or ripping the hair. The material helps to reduce frizz and friction against the hair. I prefer to buy them, but you can opt for an easy DIY. (If you want a tutorial on how to make them, let me know!)

This is my lifesaver. I never go to bed without it. You can tie over your hair to preserve styles or curls. At times, I don’t even tie it around my head. More often, I prefer to wrap it around my pillow and sleep on it. Protect curly hair at night is key to maintain healthy hair. Cotton isn’t friendly to curls, so satin is the best!

Literally, can’t get over how much I use these. There never seems to be enough, lol! I tend to lose them a lot, my fiancé gets annoy because he finds them everywhere, in the car, bathroom, his clothes, in the bed, literally everywhere! They help to keep hair in place or really cute hairstyles. There are variations to types of hair pins, but I prefer the ones shown. I love to DIY them to give them a pop of color or accent to mines to add a bit of flare to my hairstyle.

At first, like most curly gurls, I use combs, mental clips, just about anything to section my hair. Then I found these and it simplify life. Awesome for holding hair in place when styling or detangling my hair. Very gentle on hair strands, firm hold, and easy to grip. You can find them at any hair supply store or order on amazon, like I did. You can never have enough.

This is great for tying my hair up during the day or night. At night, I loosely tie my hair up in a high ponytail (pineapple) to preserve my curls. During the day, at work or before a workout, I want to keep my hair off my neck, but protect my hair strands. Since they come in various colors, it makes for great updo hairstyles.
