How to get natural looking waves

DIY

When I was younger, I wanted to have curls really badly. I absolutely hated my straight hair, because in my eyes it looked boring. I tried many things in order to get them: hair rollers, sleeping with a bun or braid, keep a braid in for a whole day and curl it with a straightener. This caused my hair looking either awfully curled, a huge lack of sleep or sometimes even both. To make it all worse, my hair then gets very fuzzy. Nope, would definitely not recommend anyone to try any of the above mentioned methods. Fortunately, I’ve discovered my own way to get wavy-looking hair and it’s actually pretty simple to get them. First of all, wash your hair and let it air dry. When it’s almost dry, not perfectly dry yet though, brush it trough, make a pony tail and hold it in its place with your hands. Then simply turn your hair over and over again until it automatically wraps itself up like a (very forced) bun. Wrap a rubber, or if you’ve got very thick and many hair even two rubbers, around the bun to keep it in place. When your hair is dry simply remove the rubber and spray some hairspray in your hair. Do not brush your hair after removing the rubber(!), but simple get it in shape with your hands. It’s very important to let your hair dry a little bit after washing it, because it won’t be able to dry well, if you don’t. Hope it works, good luck! Don’t forget to let me know what you think about this (:

  1. I have veen using this methods since my early teens. Discovered the secret after wearing braids for couple of days and then undid them.

    1. Oh really? Because they seem to disappear after an hour or so, since my hair is pretty thick and heavy.. What do you do to keep it all in place? (: x

      1. It is not my secret! I have very thin hair. If I use the method overnight, like go to bed with the hair up, in the morning it is ready to go. I use some hair spray to make it look better and nothing else. If the air is not too humid, it can last two days.
