There are tons of things you can do with your hair. However, nature has been designed to limit you and crush your dreams.
We live in a world where nature can potentially hurt us. Yes, it provides us with things like food, water, and air. However, we also find a lot of things in the environment that can hurt us and make our body suffer. Too much exposure to the sun can damage the hair and skin, powerful gusts of wind can tangle our hair into a huge mess and pollution can poison us and make our hair sticky and dirty.

HOW TO STYLE WET HAIR
Most of us work in a demanding environment where the competition is quite fierce and tough. That is why it is important to make a good impression and arrive to work early.

Make a simple know using these two pieces by crossing one section over the other and then pulling them through. Repeat the same process and secure the ends by tucking them under the bun and placing a bobby pin.
Another thing you can do is the figure 8 low bun. Place your hair in a low ponytail, twist your hair and loop the upper portion of the twist in one hand while holding the tip of the twist in the other hand. Then, wrap the tip of the hair around the elastic then slip it inside the looped part of the hair. Secure the tip with a bobby pin. These two styles can give you the most beautiful waves when you unravel them after they dry. Perfect for rushing to a dinner after work.
