Finnnnnallly I am getting this up for you girls!! I have been asked many many times since I started the blog and social media accounts, how do I get my hair wavy like you see in the majority of my pictures? 🤔
I've promised a hair tutorial to show you girls all the details for a while now....ok, like 6 months 🤦🏻♀️.....so yeah, sorry about that. Honestly, I had no idea how much work and time would go into creating it either! But I am happy to report that I have finally knocked it out....edited it down to what I feel is an appropriate tutorial length for a video, and am ready to share with you babes.
First off, I wanted to list the products below that I talk about throughout the video and links to them in case you want to try any of them. Now, let me preface this by saying that up until about 3 years ago, I literally used no product in my hair. Like washed it, dried, and maybe some hair spray. That was it. I also bought the worlds cheapest shampoo and conditioner in the world. I was of the mindset that products really didn't make a difference and that cheap shampoo and expensive shampoo were basically the same thing.
Ha. How dumb is that?
Anyway, I am by no means an expert on products, thats for sure, but I have been trying different things out over the last few years and learning what I like. So below are all of the products that I talk about during the video which are pretty much my go staples right now anytime I fix my hair......which by the way is about every 4-5 days. That's how often I wash it. I hate washing my hair. 🙅🏻 I don't like how it dries it out, plus I just don't like doing it 🙄 or fixing it...so I try to make it last as long as possible......which is why I do consider myself to be a connoisseur (sure did have to goole how to spell that word 😂) of dry shampoo. I am always trying new ones our but I've also highlighted my two current fav's below.
I've linked all products to Amazon to make your life just a little easier.
For starters, I use:
It's a 10 - Miracle Leave in plus Keratin
After I shampoo and condition my hair I spray this in and comb it through. It smells create, detangles, and makes my hair feel super soft. It's great at moisturizing your hair and protecting it from heat. Which speaking of heat, it's important for me to note that I RARELY ever actually blow dry my hair. I literally HATE blow drying my hair....most because I am also so sweaty afterwards 😂
All I do after I wash and after I spray the It's a 10 product, is blow dry just the roots of my hair for about 1 minute so they aren't too flat and that's it. Then I sleep on it wet .
Another favorite product that helps to smooth out my hair and tame my seemingly unending amount of flyaways, is:
Frizz Ease Touch Up Cream
I use this after I have styled my hair completely. Just a tiny dab, as you will see in the video, and I smooth down flyaways up top and run my fingers through all of my hair to smooth it out.
My absolute FAVORITE product of all time that I cannot live without is:
Garnier Fructis Texture & Tease Finishing Spray
Girls this stuff is legit amazing!! I found it a couple years ago and have used it ever sense. Problem is you can rarely ever find it in stores so I order it on amazon, usually 4-5 cans at a time. I spray it on after styling my hair to give it texture and make it piecey looking and then also up at the roots for a boost of volume. LOVE IT!! And it's cheap!
For my go to dry shampoos, my two favorites are:
Batisste - Divine Dark
I like that fact that it's tinted for dark hair so it doesn't dull out the way my hair looks up top.
My other current favortie is:
I think these are new for them but they smell AMAZING!
For hair spray, I included my regular go to which is:
but I also included a pricier option as well which I also really like
R+Co Vicious Strong Hold Hairspray
That's it for product. Now take a look at the tutorial below and the tips that I outline below it. If you like this video and want to see more stuff like this, please comment on Instagram or Facebook or send me a message and let me know what you thought!
Things to Remember:
- I sleep on wet hair
- SMALL pieces of hair
- Curl Vertically
- Don't hold too long
- Don't curl the bottom 1 1/2 - 2 inches
- Pull down with curling iron at the end before letting go
- Always curl back AWAY from your face
- Let hair sit and cool before shaking it out
