Are you envious of the volume and texture of wavy-haired women? Do you wish you could fall asleep and wake up with a whole new look?
Good news! The following three no-heat methods will give you gorgeous wavy locks overnight.
Many of us have been using this method for no-heat waves since we were little. Just go to bed with braids with damp hair and wake up with a new ‘do. However, now that we're older and wiser, we know that not all braids are created equal.
Experiment with the type of braid you choose to get different results. A fishtail braid will produce wavy hair without the crimping that can come with a standard braid. A rope braid will leave you with a more piecey, natural look. French braided pigtails can create tighter, all over curls. Give a few different braids a try and see which works best with your hair.
The Sock Bun
Did you ever think you'd use a sock to get beautiful, wavy hair? Give it a chance. You can easily make your sock bun by grabbing a sock and cutting off the toe area. Roll it up to create a doughnut shape and you're ready to go.
Before bed, after towel drying your hair, add a bit of styling product, such as mousse or a texturizing spray. Put your hair into a ponytail, then pull it through the sock ring, keeping it toward the bottom of the ponytail. Spread your hair out around the sock ring then tuck it in while you roll the sock ring toward the base of the ponytail. Secure it with bobby pins. In the morning, unroll the sock and check out your brand new waves.
The Twist and Clip
If you're not having luck with braids or buns, one last option might give you the waves you're looking for.
Once again, start with slightly damp hair. Then, dividing the hair into two equal sections. Tightly twist the first section. When you've twist all the way to the end, pull the hair to the top of your head and secure it with a clip. Do the same for the second section. Use more clips to ensure that the hair is secure and your twists won't come out as you sleep. In the morning, unclip the twists and enjoy your new look.
