I've lately formed a habit of plaiting my hair after I wash it. I wait until it's almost completely dry and form a plait starting as high up my head as possible. This is how my hair looks when I take it out the next day:
I just run my fingers through and voila! The waves do loosen up a bit during the day but since I started using Tigi Catwalk Styling Cream (before plaiting) they hold their shape a lot better. A spritz of hairspray means that it still looks wavy the next day :) I'm on the lookout for some good sea salt spray to see if it makes any difference. My hair is pretty straight- slightly wavy but mostly straight. Not bad for just a plait, eh?
I can't wait to try my triple barrel curler when it arrives! The top part of my head looks too straight but with the curling iron I'm hoping I can make it look more "natural".
