Hi guys,
   I am back and hopefully I will be better than before. Its a new year with new possibilities and I hope we all get to do our very best this year. As you all know I LURVE DIY!! If I could, I would change my middle name to DIY (although it would sound weird but who cares??? Lol) So the other day I was messing around with some stuff and I decided to create this super cute floral headband that I love so much. Here's how to make yours :
You'll Need

I used a Nice sturdy Bra strap for this. Naughty me!!
Let's begin 

Remove the flowers from the stems and if you wish to add leaves, remove them also.

Arrange the flowers and leaves how you would like them to appear on the headband.

Sew the first flower/leave on your line up on the head band. Ensure your stiches are barely visible on the flower/leave. If you are using regular elastic for this its best to sew the ends together before you start stitching on the flowers/leaves. Since I used a Bra strap that has closures at the end I decided to leave it open.


Now continue taking either a flower or a leave from your line up and sewing them as close together as possible. your rhythm should be leave/flower/leave/flower/leave and so on.

A quick Tip 

To ensure the flowers and leaves don't come apart I stitched them together first before sewing them on to the band. You see that black thread at the base of the flower? That's what holds the flower together.

Since I used an open strap with closures I had to sew the flowers on both sides of the straps while making sure the flowers/leaves at each end hide the straps from sight.

I stitched the flower right on top of the strap to hide it from view. If you are using a sealed head band or elastic, you don't have to do this. Just sew them right on till you get to the last flower/leave.
As you can see, the closures are hidden from sight with a leave on the left and a flower on the right to keep the rhythm going. Next I continued stitching leaves and flowers from my line up till they finished.

For those who use a sealed headband like these:

 All you need to do is comb out your fro and slip it on. If you wanna live on the edge like me and use a bra strap,  just comb out your fro and place the strap on your head from back to front, making sure the flowers are in front and snap the closures together. Voila your very own headband!!! I hope you enjoy making yours like I did mine.

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,   Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing: Use the right tool  Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.  Avoid these  Much better Comb your hair only when it is damp  Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be.
