What do you have in your bathroom storage closet?
I recently did some spring cleaning and found some forgotten about – but had to buy and try – hair accessories. I pulled out at least 3 different size barrels of curling irons, hot curlers, those bendy curlers, and a crimper. ACK! Did I really crimp my hair?
I wish I knew then what I know now and I would have saved some money. Thanks to social media, like blogs and Pinterest, I came across this easy wave technique and had to try it. I would love to achieve the beautiful looking waves seen on Taylor Swift. Her wavy locks seem to be her favorite look.
The power of braids
Yes, I’m one of those people who braided my wet hair, slept that way, just to get the look of the waves in my dry hair after taking them out in the morning. Let’s face it, that’s sometimes uncomfortable, not to mention increases split ends and breakage. Here’s a quick way to add waves, some texture, and body to your hair.
You’ll need a hair straightener (look in your bathroom storage closet). On your dry hair, divide it into hair into two sections or more depending on the amount of wave you want and time you have. Braid each section.
Take one braid and twist it. While holding the twist, put the hot straightener around the twisted braid and twist the straightener in the same direction as your twisted hair. Repeat this with the other braided section.
Take out the braid when the hair is cool. Run your fingers through your hair to separate the braid and see the resulting waves.
This “easy waves” technique really enhances and showcases any natural wave your hair may have.
Achieve different amount of waves by making tighter or loose braids. Use Mane ‘n Tail Braid Sheen Spray to slightly dampen the braid before twisting for yet another wavy look.
