Got bored with your straight and beautiful, but plain-looking straight hair? Well, this might cheer you up. I’m here today with a full tutorial on how to scrunch your straight hair perfectly. You’ll get that wavy, wet look in no time if you just follow a few quick steps I’m about to give you.
I’ll also list out all the requirements, meaning the products and tools you’ll need in order to pull this look off. It’ll maybe take a bit of time and practice, but it’ll be totally worth it once you stand in front of the mirror, unable to recognize your own hair. It’s the best feeling in the world since we girls enjoy changes so much, plus you’ll also be ecstatic once it reaches your brain that you did it all by yourself, without any help from a professional hairstylist. No money will be unnecessarily spent also, except for the products I’m about to list out, but you probably already have them in your bathroom, so no money wasted there.
Let’s waste no time either, and let’s get to work as quickly as possible.
Full tutorial coming right up!
Here’s the complete guide on what to do if you’re in the mood of scrunching your straight hair.
You’ll start by washing your hair. There are special shampoos made for hair that’s about to get curled, so if you can it’ll be a good idea to get one of those. Also use the conditioner, but only at the hairs ends though. The conditioner is a great thing for moisturizing your hair, but it’ll weigh her down, and the styling will be made much more difficult to do.
Dry your hair using a towel. Just flip your head downwards and squeeze out the water from your hair. Don’t rub it though. It’ll make your hair’s shaft all frizzy, which will compromise the sleek, wavy look you’re trying to get
Put the mousse the size of a golf ball on your hair next. Start by putting it on your palm and rub it gently between your hands before applying it to your hair. Massage it into the sections of your hair, giving it time and opportunity to absorb the product and get some shape.
Next step will require a diffuser attachment for your blow dryer. Gather one section of your hair and put it into the cup while you’re turning it on. Be sure not to move the diffuser around at all since that’ll have a straightening effect on your hair. Just hold it in place, and it’ll do all the work for you while it’s drying your hair nicely. Do this with all of the hair until it’s completely dry.
You’ll want some extra hold, so scrunching a bit more gel or mousse into your hair would certainly be a good idea. Curling iron with a large barrel will come to your aid if you’re not satisfied with the overall look at this point. That’s to say if your hair still looks much more straight than wavy.
Flexible holding spray is your finishing move.
