Hi guys. You’ll be happy to know that we survived the first week of school! The last few days have been very busy with school starting, plus sports practices and games, so I apologize for the lack of posts recently. We had a few things planned, meaning that we’re currently a little behind schedule- this post was originally intended for Monday, because this is just kind of a Monday hairstyle. I’m gonna talk you guys through how to get heatless waves perfect for lazy mornings when you don’t feel like spending a lot of time on your hair. Unlike other heatless waves methods, this version does not include braiding wet hair the night before and sleeping on it. Instead, it’s meant to be done in mornings. The actual amount of time you’ll spend on it should add up to be only a few minutes, but the wait time is close to an hour. So this Monday you can wake up, spend 3 minutes on your hair, spend some time eating breakfast or doing your makeup for the day, then take down your hair for instant, effortless waves and walk out the door! Comment below to let me know if you try this out. I’d love to hear if you like it or if it was helpful for you!
What you need: Hairbrush, 2 small elastics, hairspray, and a spray bottle filled with water (I also add some of this leave-in treatment for added softness and conditioning)
- Start by splitting your hair down the center in the back. Starting with the right side, use the bottle to spray with water from midshaft to ends. Use your hand to feel the hair. Once it’s damp all over mist in some hairspray, then another few squirts of water. Run your fingers or brush through the hair to make sure the moisture is evenly distributed.
- Then you can start braiding. You’re going to do a single braid on each side. Braid as tightly as you can. Pull each strand taut after passing it to the center. Braid all the way down, the tie off with a small elastic.
- Repeat steps 1&2 on the left side. Then you have 30 minutes-an hour to wait while the hair dries, depending on how wet it started as. If you don’t have enough time, you can use a blowdryer on a cool setting to speed up the process. Once the braids feel dry, take the ties off and unravel each side.
- Product time! For the last step, you can mist the unraveled hair with more hairspray if you feel like you’ll need extra hold. I prefer taking a styling oil (I use this one), and scrunching it into my hair. You could do the same with a small amount of hair wax for extra hold, or use texturizing spray or sea salt spray for a chic beachy texture. It really all depends on what kind of look you’re going for.
And you’re done! I hope you love this style, like this post if you’re going to try it. 😉 And tell me all about it in the comments! ❤
