Victoria Moronta is like a real life mermaid!
We came across her gorgeous Instagram page about 18 months ago, and have been mesmerised with her long locks ever since.
This beach babe who calls the USA home, has shared a few tips on how she tames her luscious mane...Victoria, tell us a little about yourself!
I'm a freelance model and blogger. The east coast of Florida is my home base but I spend any free second I have travelling. I fall in love with bits of each city I visit and stranger I meet, it's incredible.What inspired you to create the blog Victrix Valley, with your photographer Tori Ray?
Victrix Valley is a space built and shared by two creatives - Tori and I found ourselves gravitating towards each other for projects quite often. After awhile of working together, we knew a collaborative blog was the perfect place to document our adventures and work. Though we've both grown and have our own interests / work elsewhere, Victrix will always be our common space.You've been travelling a lot this year, what has been the highlight?
I feel in love with the culture and people in Bali. I was hosted by a women's surf and yoga retreat, Ocean Soul and had the pleasure of meeting the most incredible people.
I'd say any place you go, especially when visiting another country, just submerge yourself with new happenings, new culture and new people.Your mane is AH-mazing and we have major #hairenvy. How long did it take to grow your locks this long?
I'd say its taken just under a year to reach this crazy length. I tame it every few months or so with a light trim to prevent breakage and split ends.What are your must have hair products that you cannot live without?
Dry Shampoo for sure. I'm a fan of messy, out of control locks, and dry shampoo definitely helps to achieve the look.What are your tips and tricks for maintaining the health and length of your hair?
I definitely recommend a healthy diet and staying away from harsh chemicals / heat exposure.
I hardly wear my hair up in a ponytail and have found that my hair is fuller when I refrain from using hair ties.What does your hair routine involve?
I believe natural is best - I wash my hair every second day or so.
It has never been dyed, I don't really style it and hardly ever use heat tools.
I usually just apply a little bit of hair spray and dry shampoo to it. I trim my own hair every 3 months.
Though genetics has a lot to do with how long your hair can grow, keeping it natural (no dyes/heat) and maintaining a healthy diet, (including lots of water) will help to keep it healthy. You're always at the beach, what is your secret for ensuring healthy strands during Summer?
Do you have any tips for people wanting to grow their hair like yours?
My hair reacts pretty well to the harsh Summer weather but when it needs a little pick-me-up, I apply a small amount of Hello Hair
or a bit of the Organix Biotin & Collagen Oil
to my ends.What is next for you? Any more travel plans on the horizon? What can we look forward to seeing on your blog?
I'm headed to California for a little while, then I have a few plans to venture around the U.S.
I'm working on putting my passport to good use in the new year, but as of now the destinations are a secret!
Tori and I just wrapped up the last post from our recent trip to California on Victrix Valley.
I am actually releasing my own blog this week, titled The Girl with the Hair.
