Hey guys! 🌞🌞
I’ve got something a little different for y’all today! My typical night hair routine was to dry my hair in a towel after I showered and i’d throw it up in a bun while it was still wet! I wouldn’t even brush my hair because I didn’t want to deal with it. Most days when I would wake up my hair was still really wet and I would just blow dry it, then straighten/curl it! Recently, I’ve broke my hair dryer (just stopped working for no reason lol @ my lifeeeeee) so I’ve been trying something new with my hair instead of using heat!
- Let your hair air dry for the most part but make sure it’s still a little damp. I wouldn’t recommend it to be soaking wet because you want your hair to be dry in the AM!
- Brush out any knots you may have!
- Part your hair!
- Separate your hair into three pieces and tightly braid. The waves look more natural with just a regular braid vs. a French braid in my opinion!
- Finish off your braid with a hair tie, but don’t braid the hair completely to the tip, leave about two inches as shown above!
- Spray sea salt spray on the braid! See below ⬇️⬇️⬇️
- Go to sleep & let it dry!
After the braid is complete, spray some sea salt spray into the braid! This will make the waves look natural! I bought this spray at target for about $5.00, but if you don’t want to spend any money here’s a link I found on Pintrest that tells you how to make the spray at home!
The next morning: I typically keep the braid in until I’m done with my make-up because the braid keeps my hair out of my face! So the next morning after you’re done doing your make-up, take the braid out! Shake the pieces a little with your fingers and guess whaaaaAAAaaat?!? That’s all there is to it! 🙆🏼 I don’t use any hair spray because it really isn’t needed since I used the sea salt spray. This hair style is so so so so simple and easy to do for everyday. I recommend making it part of your nightly routine because it will help save time in the morning before work, class, etc. And I mean who doesn’t love sleeping in a little longer because you won’t have to do your hair!?? ⏰⏰
This is the result after a nights sleep and 5 hours after it being out of the braid! Doesn’t it look so naturally pretty?! Ahhhh so in love! 😍😍 And the best part is that there’s no heat involved so you’re not damaging your hair! 🙆🏼🙆🏼🙆🏼🙆🏼 The sea salt spray is the secret, I would highly recommend the brand Not Your Mothers! Alright guys, I know this was a little different but I just wanted to share! I think I’m going to expand my blog into some more beauty hacks as well! Do you guys have any thoughts?
