If you have unruly hair but you're afraid of damaging it with excessive heat styling, our Hair Art Director Tom Connell is here to help! Learn how to create natural waves, without using a hairdryer. Special guest: his wife Tricia!
# 1 - Wash and soften
To get beautiful, defined waves, you’ll need to start with a good haircare routine. LOVE CURL shampoo and conditioner add softness and moisture to your hair, for further hydration, you can apply the mask every two weeks!
# 2 - Detangle and define the waves
After washing, spray LOVE CURL Primer onto towel-dried the hair. Comb starting from the roots towards the ends to untangle any knots. Then, define your waves by applying LOVE CURL Cream on the lengths.
Pro tips:Apply the cream with the palm of your hand to avoid breaking up the natural waves.
# 3 - Divide into 5 sections and create the twist!
Next, divide the hair into 5 sections: two in front of the ears and three on the neck. Start by taking the front section on your right and create a small twist, turning the hair towards the face as if to form a rather tight rope. After that, do the same for all the other sections.
Pro tips: Twist the front sections in toward the face, and the rear sections in the opposite direction.
To not stress the hair with hot tools, let it dry naturally!
# 4 - Open the twist to create the waves
Once the hair has dried, you can gently open the twists by unravelling in the opposite direction.
Pro tips:Be careful not to break the curls up too much and you will get soft but disciplined waves.
Now add some volume by flipping your hair upside down and shaking your head gently. Then spray More Inside Shimmering Mistas the finishing touch!
