So I made a new friend and I just can't help but be jealous of her hair. She says she hasn't cut it in years. I've told her about LHC, but I don't think she's ever going to be a fanatic. She wears it down mostly and I just can't believe it... so many fun things she could do! I finally said, "I know this is super weird.. but can I please play around with your hair? There are so many styles I want to practice." And she said yes!

So this braid attempt isn't great. It's even off center, but you can not imagine how hard her hair is to handle! It is SO long and thick. It took several attempts to even get a semi decent braid, as it took some getting use to to handle the weight, length, and thickness.

She gave me permission to post this picture.

And then there's my hair. I have some serious catching up to do in terms of length.

*it's not oily, just a little damp in one streak!

Obviously it's hard to compare hair in pics, but I prefer your hair Vanille, the colour is lovely. :flower:

That's a really pretty braid! I think you did a great job! And lucky you that you have someone to practice styles on. :D

Oh wow, I didn't expect it to look like that! Do you use henna? What's your natural colour?

My hair is a dark brown I think. But it's fairly translucent and fine (when my greys come in they are are very translucent, no pigment and light can be seen behind them). I think this is why it looks like this in the sun, perhaps.

I use Manic Panic Vampire Red. It stays in for months for me.

I love your color Vanille; it's subtle and sleek inside, and the sun makes the red really pop. :D
Gorgeous.

It's pretty. :D I like the idea of having walking into sunlight and having a massive hair colour change.

I'm surprised you can't see any streaks of red in the other picture, your hair looks uniformly dark.

Your hair in the sun is beautiful! And It's so shiny and glossy in the other picture... saying that, I would adore hair the colour your friend has, always had such a weakness for red hair...

Yes and her hair is naturally that color, virgin hair!

It's a little hard to tell, but... I think my braid thickness, from what I remember of back then of all my hair, is about as thick as her half up braid... :o And might I say, her colour is simply divine. Your hair is very nice too; long and healthy looking.

Awww thanks! I don't get the compliment of it being long too much yet :)

Vanille, your hair is pretty thick, very beautiful, I would not want more than yours that if I ever can get 30% of your look, lol
Both of you are a WOW, thanks for sharing

Her hair looks almost EXACTLY like my baby brother's hair! He's got a ponytail circumference of about 6, and the color is nearly spot on. Sooooooo pretty!

And the braid looks good by the way, I think you did a splendid job, and you'll only get better with practice. :)

As for your hair, the color is very pretty, reminds me of a perfectly brewed cup of dark roasted coffee. Very shiny too!

You both have really beautiful hair. I think you did a superb job braiding her hair, even with how difficult you said the handling was. Good going!

I'm with Teao the cat; I'm so jealous of your hair, Vanille! Red--"natural" or otherwise--is always beautiful!

I agree you both a lovely hair! Vanille, your hair has a nice shine! I can't believe how thick your friend's hair is, I think her braid is all of my hair.:D

By looking at her picture, does anyone have any ideas for a hair style I can try or any products I should try? She doesn't pay any attention to her hair right now and has agreed to let me try new things on it.
