Easy waves….without heat!

I have always been in love with the whole beach waves look and last night I discovered a brilliant trick! 

I’ve tried curlin tongs, crimpers, rollers, heated rollers and curling with straighteners but nothing rely have me that perfect soft wave. Then I remembered when I was little, my mum would put my hair in French braids when wet before bed and she used to say “when you wake up you will have pretty princess hair!” Well, it never happened! Just had weird looking servants hair full of kinks! So I thought maybe the reason being was because it was wet, she never tried it dry! So I tied my hair into 2 tight plaits and slept on it (my boyfriend thought I was going mad). When I work up I untied my hair and brushed through it and ta da! It worked, so happy!  


I’m going to be doing this tonight as well but adding some salt spray and seeing how it looks then! I’ve finally got my princess hair πŸ’†πŸΌπŸŒΈ

  1. I only ever did this with wet hair, and it always turned out far too crazy and curly for my liking. I never thought of trying it dry! I will have to try it, Thankyou πŸ™‚ xo


    1. It really does work!! And if you think it’s still a bit too much, just brush it through a few times and it tames it πŸ™‚ the photo doesn’t do it justice though πŸ‘ŽπŸ» couldn’t get the right angle! No worries, let me know how it goes x


      1. I found when it was wet even if I did brush it, it was still very crazy and unmanageable. I will let you know how I get on ): xo

  2. I do this πŸ˜€ but I spray it with a little water again before plaiting. Another thing you can do if you have loads of time is do tight curls with a straightener the night before, then plait them over night, and it keeps the curl in, but makes it bigger and wavier by morning.
