To achieve straight hair, I first put Sleek.look by Matrix Blow-Down Cream into my wet hair. This helps cut down on frizz. Then I blow dry with a hairdryer and flat iron with my ghd iron. By the time I go through this whole process, I pretty much need a nap.
For beach waves, I spray Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves onto wet hair and scrunch. Easy-peasy, right? (Or you can just jump into the ocean and let the saltwater do its thang).
For soft curls, I use the No Heat Curls Headband method (type that into You Tube for a tutorial). For the longest time, I tried curling my hair with a curling iron or my flat iron to no avail. It would take me forever only to discover that the curls wouldn't stay. This is hands down the easiest way to get gorgeous, long lasting curls.
You can get different curls depending on the size of the headband...
(see, they even held up in the crazy heat in the Bahamas!)
I've discovered I don't actually need to keep the headband in overnight...it works in just 30 minutes. After I take the headband out, I spray Dove Extra Hold Hairspray on and I'm good to go!
Do you wear your hair straight, wavy, or curly? Are you a slave to your hair?
