How to Make Your Hair Wavy and Curly Without a Curling Iron
- 1). Wash your hair. If you do not want your hair to look oily when it is dry, it would be smart to wash with shampoo. Also use a conditioner appropriate for your hair type.
- 2). Remove excess water. I do this before I get out of the shower (just squeeze your hair gently and allow the excess water to drip off)
- 3). Comb your hair while it is still wet.
- 4). After you have combed your hair, it might be smart to add mousse to your hair. Use as little mousse as possible (some people may find that their waves look and feel better if they don't use any mousse at all - but it will hold better if you use mousse)Do not get mousse on scalp, but on the rest of your hair away from scalp.
- 5). This next step is the most important! SCRUNCH your hair. If you do not know what this means, I will tell you. Scrunching your hair is just squeezing and bunching your hair up a little bit at a time. So take a small handful of hair near your scalp and squeeze it. Continue to do the same with that section of hair in a downward direction until that vertical section is complete. I usually use both hands at the same time to cover more area of hair. You should start to see results after you have scrunched.
- 6). For even better results, you can put your (still wet) hair in a bun. This will serve as a hands-free scrunching technique. I often go to bed at night with wet hair in a scrunched up bun(although my Mom tells me this will make me catch a cold) When I wake up in the morning I have very curly hair.
- 7). If you do not want very curly hair, and you only wish to have wavy hair - DO NOT GO TO BED WITH YOUR HAIR IN A SCRUNCHY BUN - instead you should only keep your hair in a scrunchy bun for maybe an hour. The longer you keep it in the bun the longer your waves will hold.
- 8). If you want to have waves in your hair and not have wet hair, it might work out best for your hair to dry it afterwards but continue to scrunch while you are drying.
