If you have tried endlessly to achieve curly hair, but your hair is just too naturally straight, then you need to read this! We have all tried to make wavy hair work, but for most of us, it either turns into total frizz or pin straight. Instead of continuing to wear stick-straight ponies and tight buns, you need to try these tips to get some waves — and keep them!
Once you try it, you won’t being seeing anything but waves for awhile!
Use the diffuser: You know that weirdly shaped contraption that comes in the box with your blowdryer? Well, it really does have a purpose! (I didn’t know it’s purpose until college…so don’t feel bad). While you are about halfway through blowdrying your hair, toss your head upside down. You can then use the diffuser prongs side up to almost scrunch your hair. Then just continue to dry your whole head this way.
Mousse Mousse Mousse: Many of us have all these hair products that we NEVER use. Why? I have no idea! Maybe we just like to know that they are there when we need them. Anyway, you can finally use it! There is almost no chance of your hair curling or waving if you don’t use mousse. Before using the diffuser, or ANY heat tool, apply mousse. I like to use TRESemme 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse, 8.1 oz.
Sleep in braids: There is no better way to achieve waves than by NOT using heat. Braid your hair at night before you go to bed. Before braiding spray your hair with sea salt wave spray and by morning you will have perfect wavy hair in no time. This works best when hair is dirty!
Use someone else’s hair: You can easily get wavy hair from extensions. They come wavy or you can make them wavy yourself. It’s much easier to curl hair that is right in front of you then hair that is on the back of your head!
