If you’re the kind of girl who gets tired of your blowout after a few days, these tips are for you.
ADD TEXTURE: It’s texture that you’re missing. The zig-zag or your kinks. The spiral of your curls. Or the bounce of your waves. But straight hair doesn’t have to mean bone straight. Before bed, try using a big-barrel curling iron to get big, loopy curls and then pin curl sections for fullness in the morning. You don’t have to forgo the volume you’re used to for straightness.
DON’T GO BONE STRAIGHT: When going straight, have your stylist (or you) flatiron your hair 80% of the way, which will leave a little texture. You can wrap it that night for extra silkening, if you need it.
DO THREE JUMBO BRAIDS: When it’s almost wash day, braid your straight tresses into three big french braids – one down the center and two on the side – for a bed head wavy look. For extra texture, lightly (LIGHTLY, GUYS) spritz your finished braids with a little leave-in conditioner before bed.
SLEEP IN LARGE BANTU KNOTS: Several large bantu knots will prep your hair for a messy top knot or fun ponytail.
