Hair Share — Loose Waves Without a Curling Iron


Holly sent in some great tips for creating waves overnight.

1. Rub Organix Coconut Milk Mousse, which is a mousse/leave-in conditioner hybrid, into damp hair. (Yet another Organix recommendation!)
2. Twist hair into a bun
3. Take the bun out in the morning and shake out the waves
4. Spray upside down then again right side up with Aussie Mega hairspray
5. Finish off any scruffy bits with a little bit of Fructis wax

Holly calls it “deliberate bedhead.” I call it gorgeous. Thanks for sending in your tip, Holly!

Share the hair love! If you have a great hair tip or two, email me with the details.

    I have tried that oh so many times, my hair ends up in chaos, unfixable without fully wetting it chaos.

    I wished it worked like it does for her!

    This sounds awesome. I fear though that my hair would never dry till I took it out, then it would pouf and frizz. I hate having so much hair. I might have to try it anyway.

    I agree; I’ve tried this numerous times (I’m not a quitter :) but I have so much hair that it’s still wet in the morning and I’m basically doing my hair all over again. I have to add more product or wet it down and either try to go fully wavy with a diffuser or try to then get it straight. It’s for someone who doesn’t have a ton of thick hair, but that’s great it works for her.

    Wooow that is cool! I have a different question – how can I straighten my curly hair without constantly destroying the hair structure? Somebody recommended me to use curly hair
    … do you have any experience with that?

    Thanks guys!
