Wash and Condition: Start with clean, freshly washed hair. Use a moisturizing conditioner to keep your hair healthy and well-hydrated.
Apply a Heat Protectant: Before using heat styling tools, apply a heat protectant spray to safeguard your hair from damage caused by heat.
Use a Curling Wand or Flat Iron: To create waves, use a curling wand or a flat iron with rounded edges. Section your hair and curl or wave small sections at a time.
Vary the Curling Technique: To achieve natural-looking waves, vary the direction and size of your curls. Curl some sections toward your face and others away from your face.
Don't Overdo It: Avoid excessive heat and over-styling, as this can damage your hair. Use a lower heat setting and limit how many times you pass the heat styling tool over each section.
Finish with Hair Spray or Texturizing Spray: After creating your waves, finish with a light hold hairspray or texturizing spray to help the waves set and stay in place.
