Tip-dyed hair. I love dying my hair. The thing I love about this is that I can have long hair and crazy colors. When I get tired of them, I can cut off two inches, and be back to my natural color and still have long hair.
Simple trick to add texture to your braid: Get 3 strands for a normal braid. Loosely braid One Strand. Use that braided strand with the other 2 to form the final braid of all your hair. Loosen with fingers for more "messy.
I need to try this! Make a pony tail, leaving out an inch-wide ring of hair all the way around the head. Start at the neck using an equal amount of the loose hair and ponytail to make a french braid all the way around the head.
