I just wanted to let everyone know the story of The Wright Hair. I am fairly new to blogging about hair but I have been doing my little girls hairstyles since the day my oldest daughter was born. The first thing out of the doctors mouth was I hope you ordered a girl full of hair. When my 2nd daughter arrived we were not so lucky with the hair genes. She has thin short hair. It was with the frustrations I had trying to do my 2nd ones hair that I decided to start this blog. I figured if I struggled this much there must be others struggling too. I am a working mom and getting my girls ready every morning is the best time of the day for me. This is a time we get to bond without other distractions. Right now my girls and I are enjoying our time together. I am sure it will only be a short time before my oldest wants to do her own hair. But for now we invite you to join us on the Wrights Journey through hair. Because of being a working mom, sometimes we will do fancy dos and sometimes quick dos, other times the do's are dont's but we welcome everyone to come along for the ride.


Low French Braid to Side Pony

This one is very similar to the rolling into a side ponytail.
I started a french braid just above her right ear.
I continued to french braid along the back of her head until it reached the right hair. 
Then I secured it with an elastic. 
I took a small amount of hair and wrapped around the elastic. I secure that small amount of hair with a small bobbie pin. 
Then we added a flower for our accessory. 

A Powerful Message!

I just recently received this email below.  I was so touched by this that I wanted to share it with everyone else.  There is nothing in this world more important than making our kids feel good about themselves.  In "normal" circumstances it is the mother that takes on the roll to teach our kids about hygiene.  This story below goes beyond the normal.  The email is from a single dad and I applaud him for caring about his daughter so much.

Here is the email
My name is Josh and i am a single dad with custody of my 6 year old daughter. I enjoy doing her hair at first i did simple single braids and even curled it almost to perfection which took two and half hours each time, it looked so awesome. I want to thank you for your blog before i found it i ran out of creativity and ideas with what to do with her hair.

It ended up down quite a few days this school year which she likes but it is so fun when i do her hair because of her excitement and how proud she is to tell everyone i did it for her. As much as i would like to curl her hair everyday it is just not feasible with the time not to mention the damage it would do. Your site has given me so many ideas and concepts to do her hair.

Thank you,

Hair Remedies

I use hair tips all the time and don't think twice about sharing so I have put together some easy hair remedies.

When it comes to hair and keeping it healthy it is better for our hair not to wash it every day. For people such as myself who has incredibly greasy hair I have learned a few tricks to making my 2nd day hair look as good as just washing it.

Getting volume:

There are a couple of things to get volume.
• First you can do a back comb. (this loses its poof over time)

• A 2nd option is using really big rollers and root volume spray. Spray the roots and roll the large curlers leave in for about 5 minutes or until the spray dries.

• An old fashioned way is to Use aluminum foil. Start by rolling aluminum foil in the shape of a cigar. Then, take 1' sections of hair and wrap from ends to roots around the foil. Heat up the foil by using a flat iron for 5 to 10 seconds. Allow the hair to cool down before removing foils. The result is big curls.
-Beach Hair: Mix a generous amount of table salt into a water bottle and spray into hair. Let set and scrunch dry hair with your hands for a beachy textured look.

-Moisturized for Dry Hair: If you have extremely dry damaged hair use olive oil put a small amount on your hair and leave on the hair for 20mins once a week for hydration.

No time for a shower or your Hair is to Greasy:

• Dry shampoo by Tresemme is the answer. This product is awesome you spray it on leave in for a few minutes then brush your hair.

• If you don't have dry shampoo then Use talcum powder put a small amount into your hands and applies at the roots. **NOTE** Be careful! The powder can be messy so do this before you put on your favorite outfit.

• If you have time to shower but your bangs are always greasy as mine are. I put on a shower cap and just wash my bangs.

Accessorize it. Use headbands, flowers, bows or anything else you like. If you don't have headbands they are easy to make. Use old bra straps, just cut them off and secure them together. Nylons or leggings also make good headbands. I have also used the ties off of shirts. My favorite headbands are using the foam rolls (they can be purchased at Justice or Claires. Flowers can be purchased or made out of flowers from a craft store. Accessorizing 2nd day hair is a good way to class up your style.

Can't find a Bobbie Pin. If you are out and need a bobbie pin and can't find one try using a paper clip.

Static. When you wake up or put on a shirt that has lots of static it never fails that the static will end up on your or her hair. Take single fabric dryer sheet and rub it over your dry hair.

Strong Hard Setting Gel: If you need a really strong hold use an old trick of sugar and water mixed, **NOTE** heavy on the sugar. It is easier to apply with a small toothed comb.


Loose Side Braid

 This has been a HairStyle Hit at our house.  Since I first did this style a couple of weeks ago she has asked for this style about 5 or 6 times.  This style is so simple, easy, quick.
All you need is a water bottle, comb, and a single elastic.
Start the french braid just above her right ear and braid along the base of her head.  When you get to the left side keep the braid low and pull the hair to the braid.
 Below is the back view.  The pictures don't do this style justice to how cute it looks.
