Have you ever tried using mousse?

Hi! I have some crazy frizzy half curly hair, it’s a little longer than yours. 

I let mine air dry the night before, and end up putting in three different products for it to end up looking half decent. 

anti frizz serum, a handful of mousse followed with the lightest hold hairspray I can find. I end up with a decent wave that lasts all day and looks like it took forever to do.

I have long hair and I hate having the wind blow it in my face. Lately I have been wearing a very high bun. Stylish and out of my face. I use either the sock method or a bun roller which I picked up in the hair accessories aisle at the drug store.

@pictureaccount:  So my hairdresses taught me this one, it is going to sound way weird but it works.  Roll your damp hair in baby wipe strips and tie at night and let air dry or in the morning if you like and blowdry.  It makes great curls with no heat.  I think there are some tutorials on youtube.

@pictureaccount:  There are a lot of products out there, if you get a decent one your hair should stay soft. I use Nexxus. Towel dry your hair really well and add mousse just a little at a time you don’t need much and stay a couple inches away from your roots. The only time I use heat is if I can’t get my bangs to cooperate.

I usually always use heat on my hair but I don’t use it every day. I curl my hair and then sleep with it up in a messy bun. The curl will usually hold for 2-3 days, especially with a curling wand. Other than that, things like headbands, half up/half down, and buns are especially good ideas. A sock bun can be particularly easy. You either put it on your ponytail and bobby pin the hair around it, or you put it at the end of the ponytail and wrap your hair up with it. They have TONS of YouTube videos on it.

@pictureaccount:  it will enhance curls and smooth out frizz, what are you trying to do with it? you’re talking about just wearing it natural and down right?
