Creating soft, flowy waves has somewhat been Mission Impossible for my naturally curly, frizzy hair. Thankfully after many trial and errors (lots of errors) I have found a technique that works for me that I’d like to share.
- Unite Session Whip Volume Foam
- Moroccan Oil
- 1 ½ Inch Curling Iron
- Rat-Tail Comb
- L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray
· I apply the Session Whip Volume Foam to my roots and blow dry my hair as straight as possible (since otherwise it’s pretty curly). Once hair is completely dry, section it off into 2 sections as if you’re going to make pigtails.
· Then starting from the back of your hair and working forwards, begin taking 2-inch sections (see image 1 above) and wrap them around the barrel of the curling iron (see image 2).
· Carefully let the curl slide off of the barrel so that it can cool. Push it back and grab the next 2-inch section, again working your way forward (see image 3).
· Make sure to curl your hair away from your face which allows for nicer waves (see image 4).
· Once one side of your hair is curled, start on the other side (see image 5) and repeat until you’ve curled each section of your hair (see image 6).
· Let hair stand a few minutes so that it can cool. Then take the end of your rat-tail comb and gently begin running it through each of the sections that have been curled, thus separating them into soft waves (see image 7). You can also use your fingers however the more you touch your hair, the more frizz happens to rear its ugly head….at least in my case.
· Once all curls have been lightly combed through, you can take a small amount of Moroccan oil and apply sparingly to the ends and pieces framing your face.
· Mist lightly with some hairspray and you’re all set! (see images 8 and 9)
