Get natural-looking waves without any heat!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I had Christmas break and I was with family and friends, and now I have exams next week so I’ve been spending all my spare time studying.
But for today, I have a post on how to wave/crimp your hair (frizz-free!) without any heat. This literally requires no effort, so let’s begin!

Step 1. With damp or wet hair, brush and part your hair as you want it when it is wavy. Pull all of your hair into a ponytail. How high your ponytail is is personal preference, the higher, the higher up your waves will really start, but the less hair you will have to work with. The rule of thumb is generally the longer your hair, the higher the ponytail. 20130110-214137.jpg
Step 2. Put another ponytail on your hair, about 1/4 of the way down from your original ponytail holder. Add as many ponytails on as you like, so that you have a ponytail with elastic ponytail holders placed on it at different spots all the way down. The less “crimped” and more “waved” you want your hair, the further apart the elastics should go. When you add the final ponytail, try to tuck the ends of the pony into it if you don’t want straight ends (this isn’t very visible if they are). 20130110-214418.jpg
Step 3. Go to bed and get a good night’s sleep, or just leave it in all day until its dry.
Step 4. Rise and shine! Remove each elastic, starting at the bottom and working your way up. You will notice the waves in your hair right away.
Step 5. Once all of the elastics are out, gently finger comb the waves out. If you need to, use a wide-toothed comb to part your hair. Then use a smoothing balm (I used Paul Mitchell’s Super Skinny Relaxing Balm, but any smoothing balm or anti-frizz will do) and finger comb it throughout your hair. 20130110-215024.jpg
You’re done! Enjoy! 20130110-215148.jpg

*note: All products mentioned I purchased with my own money, I’m not sponsored. Also, my hair came out more crimped than wavy as I used a lot of elastics. The less elastics you use and the more hair you have, the more finger-wave effect one will achieve.
