1. Start at the roots.
Detangle freshly washed hair with your fingers and apply a styling paste or water-based pomade into your roots. Massage it into your scalp like a head massage but steer clear of the middle or ends. Then, pointing the nozzle of a hair dryer directly down on them, blow-dry only your roots while finger combing them.
2. Next, rub a leave-in conditioner or styling cream between your hands and run them through the middle of your hair, try Bumble and Bumble Leave-In conditioner. Divide your hair into two sections and twist them into two buns. Blast them with the blow-dryer until they’re about 80% dry. Then twist them the other direction and repeat.
3. When your hair is completely dry, wrap sections around a 1-in curling iron on medium heat, leaving out the ends. If the curling iron is too hot you’ll create spirals. Alternate the curls towards your face and away from your face then hold each piece for a few seconds before releasing.
4. Lastly, spritz a salt spray on your hands and run them over the curls; don’t scrunch. Try Aquage Sea Salt Texturizing Spray. If you have thick hair, use a smoothing serum instead.
Yay for summer!
