I will literally do ANYTHING to NOT “do” my hair!
Let me tell you a little bit about my hair… (sounds so fun, right?!?)
It’s THICK and course. I have friends who once asked me about the texture of my hair and I said “it’s course”, they said “you mean Horse?!?” Then proceeded to whiney and neigh like a freaking horse! Yep! true story. It is very dry as well. I can go daaaaaays with out washing my hair. In fact, I think my record is 11 days of not washing my hair! Gross or genius?? Freaking genius, I say!
To get a good beachy wavy hair look, my most favorite and EFFORTLESS way to do it is with BRAIDS! Depending on the look you are looking for (ie: tight/smaller waves, big/loose waves) depends on your braid size and placement. I have a more center hair part so I like to do one bigger braid down the middle and then one on each side of that. Two braids will give you bigger/looser waves but to get the body I wanted, I did it this way! Smaller the braid, tighter the wave. Get it???
I take a shower at night, towel dry my hair and proceed to do my braids. If you have REALLY REALLY thick hair you might want your hair to dry a little bit more and not be too wet. You don’t want to wake up with wet hair that doesn’t hold and wasted all that “effortless” time! It might take a couple times to figure out what braids and how wet/dry your hair should be.
Another HUGE TIP…
DO NOT BRUSH OUT YOUR BRAIDS!!
Use your fingers to gently pull the braids apart and just finger brush your hair. NO BRUSH NEEDED!!!
