Hi everyone! Thought I would do a post on a new hair style I've been sporting recently. I was always one for straight hair with a little bit of messy volume, mainly because my hair is naturally straight but frizzy so creating waves or silky straight hair always meant I needed to use heat, and straightening it was the easiest option.
Now what I do is wash my hair, apply Chi Silk Infusion to limit the frizziness in my hair, then do two french plaits on each side of my hair.
Above: Me with the plaits in! I feel like a school girl with them in. Thank god noone really sees me in them - I only wear them to bed.
When I wake up in the morning my hair is normally still a little damp so I flick the hairdryer over my hair whilst scrunching the hair up to encourage more waves. Finally, I mist some 'Fat Hair' hairspray all over my hair and scrunch some more. This hairspray is light but fantastic at creating volume. Perfect for bouncy waves.
Below: the finished look! Truly effortless!
So if you fancy an extra 20 minutes sleep in the mornings I definitely recommend trying out the old sleeping in french plaits trick. What's even better is that this hairstyle lasts me three days instead of the usual 2 when I have straight hair. It's messy so it can never go wrong when you sleep on it etc. If anything - sleeping on it adds to the messiness and your waves last longer.
