How To: Heatless Styling

❂❂❂

heatless waves

Overexposing your hair to heat styling takes a big toll on the health of your hair. It dries out the hair cuticle and exacerbates breakage. Hot tools are great for quick-drying and quick-styling. If you are a hot tools addict, try taking one/two days-off per week to let hair air-dry naturally and/or try this heatless styling technique. Your hair will thank you later.

NEED:

❖ Duckbill Clips

❖ Spray Bottle for water

❖ Hairspray

Optional: Sea Salt Spray

HOW TO:

❖ Start with 2nd day hair.

❖ Grab a section of your hair. The larger the section the looser the wave.

❖ Wrap section of hair around two to three fingers and roll towards the scalp. Pin hair with small duckbill clips (bobby pins will leave a crease).

❖ Wrap the hair in the direction you want the curl to fall. Inward curls, outward curls or ‘S’ -shaped curls – alternating between both.

❖ When you have pin-curled the entire head. Spray water to dampen the curls – do not soak.

Fun Fact: In the 20’s pin-curls were also called “spit curls” because they used to spit on them instead of spraying water.

❖ Let your hair completely dry. If you want to do this at night and sleep on your curls, wrap a scarf around your head to prevent fall-out and frizz.

❖ Take out all the clips – carefully.

❖ Finger brush the curls and adjust.

❖ Spray with hairspray.

Options:

◆ Focus on where you pin the curls. I like to pin them just above the ear, leaving 2-3 inches from the top of my head.

◆ Try different methods of wrapping your hair to create a variety looks. For a simple wavy look – take extra big sections. For a more bohemian look – twist the hair and then pin-curl. For more texture – use a combination of water and sea salt spray.

Bb.Texture creme

I am a second-day hair girl… First day is too shiny, soft and manageable for my liking. I discovered the perfect product that achieves just the sort-of tousled/matte finish I yearn for.

Texture Creme by Bumble & Bumble is the best way to achieve the second day/un-done/dirty look.  Simply apply to damp hair, let air-dry, or blow-dry for a more matte finish.

VOILA!
