Happy Friday, everyone! After taking a poll on Instagram Stories, you all voted to see this topknot tutorial on the blog today! As I mention in the video, I am not a “YouTube Pro”, so simply just recorded this on my phone for you all so you could watch and learn. Nothing fancy, just simply the raw footage. I decided to save my hair breakage post for another day, as I have a lot to say and realize everyone coming here is more or less coming for the tutorial and not to know how I have ben fixing my hair. Stay tuned though, that will be up within the next week or so!
Here are the products I use in the video:
- Philosophy Dry Shampoo – I have tried every brand under the sun and this stuff WORKS! I typically have to wash my hair everyday because it starts to look greasy, but have really been trying to go every 2-3 days and with time train it to last this long on it’s own. My saving grace has been this dry shampoo. I kid you not, I can go 3-4 days without washing my hair and just using this stuff!
- R + Co Texture Spray – Not only do I use this for adding texture to my topknots, I also lightly spray my hair before curling so my curl holds throughout the day!
- Invisibobble Hair Tie – Jumping back into breakage for a quick sec, I was told that my “traditional” hair ties were a big factor for my hair breakage. Sure enough, as soon as I switched to these (or the no crease ones) I started to see such a difference! I also love these Slip silk hair ties for around the house or sleeping if I am trying to preserve my curls.
Hope you enjoy the tutorial and let me know if you have any questions!
