Hi everyone! After I put up my video on a day in our lives I’ve had several requests for a hair tutorial video. I thought it sounded like a fun idea, so here we go. Check out the video below to see how I create these loose curls!
While I take a shower daily, my hairdresser advised me not to wash my hair daily. Washing dries out your hair, and since I color and heat style my hair it’s already dry to start out with.
I normally wash my hair every other day, so you will want to do this tutorial on a wash day for best results.
I naturally have rather thick, course, and wavy hair. Honestly, it’s like big fluffy 80’s hair. Man I looked great during that decade.
Unfortunately the sleek look the 90’s brought around didn’t quite mesh well with all of my lovely frizz. And since smooth hair has remained the “in” look ever since then, it’s been hard on my hair.
I have to take steps.
Lots of steps.
Lots of heat.
I also have to use good anti-frizz products to keep that Material Girl 80’s look at bay.
And I’ve found that the round brush help smooth out my locks as well, so if you’re naturally frizzy like me you might want to try mastering the round brush technique.
I think this tutorial will work on most hairstyles though, even those of you lucky girls with naturally smooth hair. If your hair doesn’t hold curl well, you might want to add a little hair spray to each curl as you go. Mine tends to hold curl fairly well, so I didn’t do that in the video, but it’s just something to consider.
All of that said, here’s my beachy waves hair tutorial. I hope you enjoy it, and that it helps some of you!
Supplies I used:
- Hair Dryer (Mine is an older Hot Tools dryer so I couldn’t find a link.)
- Olivia Garden Round Brush (Mine has a 45 on the tip and has an approx. 1.5” barrel)
- Kerastase Nectar Thermique
- Kerastase Oleo Relax
- Got2B Guardian Angel
Happy hair day!
You and I have the exact same frizzy, big hair. And I live in Houston with humidity! I also wash my hair every other day so as not to dry it out, but I use more heat. I have to dry my hair straight with a paddle brush. I use a ceramic Chi hair dryer and Chi flat iron hair product. Then I have to straighten the frizz out with my flat iron. On hair wash day I have nice, sleek, straight hair. Then the next day I curl it with a Hot Tools curling iron and it is super bouncy. In the winter I can actually go a third day without washing, but use dry shampoo and pull the front up in a cute clip. The curls are always still there. I used to color my hair but I just lack the time to keep up with it. Now all my faux blonde grew out and I have a natural mix of blonde, dark blonde and red! I like it fine and my hair is much less dry. I usually get long layers cut too, but my bang section is almost as long as my first layer now, which makes nice curls away from the face. Nice tutorial.
Yes, I do messy buns on 2nd days when it’s not cooperating too LOL
