Curled wavy hair is a fantastic appearance for a night out or a special occasion, but the repetitive heat from a curling iron may be extremely harmful. Braiding gives you smooth, wavy hair. Make sure the hair has been washed and is still somewhat moist before braiding it. If you have naturally wavy hair, a loose side braid will give you relaxed curls. For more consistent waves, consider tight braids if your hair is straight. You may then style your curly hair to seem sophisticated and appealing.
- Start with washing your hair. Shampoo and conditioner are essential, especially if you have thick, dry hair.
- Use a blow dryer to dry your hair or you can also allow it to air dry. Make sure your hair is moist but not dripping wet, as this will aid in the setting and curling of your braided hair.
- Make sure your hair is knots free. Brush your hair with a brush or comb while it is still somewhat moist.
- If your braided hair tends to get frizzy, add nourishing hair oil to the ends of your hair before braiding. Using your hands, rub a dime-sized quantity of hair oil into the ends of your hair. If you have fine or straight hair, this however, may likely prevent the curl from holding.
- In your hand, squeeze a tiny quantity of lotion or mousse. Starting in the centre of your hair and going down to the ends, apply it evenly throughout your hair.
- To perform a side braid, you’ll need at least one hair tie. To make tight braids, you’ll need two hair ties.
- Wrap a hair tie over the end of your side braid to keep it in place once you’ve braided all of your hair into one.
- Remove the hair tie and carefully remove the braid once it has been in your hair overnight, or for at least 6-8 hours. Your hair should have loose waves on the ends, giving you a relaxed, curled look.
- Apply a few spritzes of hair spray or a little amount of curling cream to your curly hair to keep it in place. Scrunch your curls softly with your hands. You may also turn your hair over to give your curls more volume.
This curling technique is quite old and well known. Only your fingers and a few bobby pins are required! You need to twist small parts of your hair around your fingers and place pins on curls. To achieve easy, beautiful curls with any hair type, leave the pins in overnight.
- Grab a piece of hair at the crown of your head and brush it through with your fingers or a comb from root to tip. Tightly pull your hair and place your dominant hand’s index finger at the end of your hair. Curl your hair when it’s wet for the greatest effects.
- The larger your curls will be at the ending of that part, the more fingers you take. Using your fingers, wrap the hair around your fingers until it reaches your scalp. Remove your fingers with caution and put the curl flat on your head.
- Pin the curl with two bobby pins in a crisscross pattern. Continue to segment, roll, and pin your curls until you have a complete head of pin curls.
- Allow your curls to set overnight for the maximum results. To preserve your curls, put a silk cover over your head. Allow 12-15 hours for your hair to set before removing your pins.
- Remove all of your bobby pins after your hair is dry to reveal your pin curls.
- After removing the pins, to make the hair look fuller and separate them, you need to gently comb and shake through your curls using your fingers.
