Gorgeous Strandz B LeFay Braidband Review and Giveaway - US Only - Ends 10/02

Thanks to Gorgeous Strandz for providing me with a free headband to review! 
Admittedly, one thing I am really bad at doing, is my hair. I usually stick with either an up ponytail, or keep it down with my bangs clipped back, or to the side. Other than that I don't really do anything to it. It's not because I don't want to, I just give up really fast, and when I try new things, I always get flustered and frustrated and just end up going back to a pony tail for ease.

So when I find products that can give me a style that I can't do on my own, I have to give them a try. So as you can imagine, I was really excited to receive a B LeFay Braidband from Gorgeous Strandz.

When I first got my package I was really excited, because I've seen lots of hairstyles with braids across the top, but I've never been able to actually try it. Unfortunately the color I received was way too dark for my hair (I have dirty blonde hair and I received a very dark brown.) At first, I was really saddened because I had been looking forward to trying something new, but after seeing the color, I knew it would match my moms hair, and I was equally excited for her to be able to try something new as well.
My mom works so much, and so hard, and it's hard for her to find time for herself, so after I had really thought about it, I was actually more happy that she was able to have it. The color I received matched my moms hair perfectly. She's worn it twice now, once while her hair was down, pulling her bangs back, and once over her head (like in the one pictured) but with just a plain pony tail. She's seemed so happy wearing it, and she told me she's even had a co-worker mention how nice it was seeing her with something different.

I was kind-of worried that the hair band would become frizzy, but so far there has been no frizz, and it still looks nice and polished.

Overall, I would say we're pretty happy with the B LeFay Braidband from Gorgeous Strandz.
