Air drying your hair is one way to keep it healthy. Blow drying it constantly dries it out and makes it brittle, plus the heat damages it! Air drying my hair can sometimes be a hassle because it dries funny, in weird waves or curls, so I did a little research on the subject. Here are a few ways to air dry your and style it at the same time.

  1. No-frizz waves: Work some mousse into your damp hair, and then pull your hair into a big loose braid. Twist and clip the braid a few inches above the crown to give your hair some lift. Take the braid out once your hair is dry. This will keep your mane from frizzing up, and it will give you even waves!
  2. Gentle waves: If you want waves framing your face, tuck your hair behind your ears as it dries and clip a metal hair pin above each ear. This will exaggerate the bend and create a face-framing wave!
  3. Textured wave: Mist damp hair with sea salt spray, then pull your hair loosely into 4 braids while it is still damp. Take the braids out when your hair is dry.
  4. Polished waves: Braid your hair into 2 loose braids before bed, clip them into twists, and then take them out when you wake up. You will have gorgeous, smooth waves.

I love that I have found ways to style my hair as it dries, it saves me so much time drying it and then styling it afterwards. I can do other things while my hair dries, and when it dries it will be wavy and styled, plus I am not damaging it with a curling iron or blow dryer!

As you know, I am somewhat of a “no heat hair style” kind of girl. I found a totally new way to curl my hair without heat and I am totally pumped about it! YouTuber Kayley Melissa did a tutorial on it. It is called “heatless halo curls” and all you need is an old t-shirt or bandana to make these curls happen!496fb45a003fbff38c0aaee262bf84cd

  1. Make sure your hair is damp. Grab a t-shirt or bandana (I prefer to use a bandana) and twist it, tying the ends together with a pony tail holder to make it into a halo.
  2. Brush the front part of your hair forward so it is hanging in your face. Place the halo on top of your head and start wrapping your hair around the bandana or t-shirt in small sections.
  3. Once you reach the end of the section you are wrapping you should secure the end with a bobby pin. Once you have wrapped all of your hair in sections around the halo, sleep on it! Since it is on top of your head it won’t interfere with your sleep.
  4. In the morning take out all of the bobby pins and run your fingers through your hair. You will have loose wavy curls that are to die for!

I love no heat curls because it takes less than 10 minutes to prep your hair and it curls while you sleep! Easy peasy!

Get Second Day Curls….On the First Day!

Don’t get me wrong, I love the way my hair looks when it is freshly curled. The curls are all bouncy and shiny! Buuuuut, there is something to be said about “second day” curls. They are looser, messier, and give off that “effortless” look. Want to know how to get “second day” curls without having to sleep on them/wait a whole day? Stay tuned!FullSizeRender (5)

  1. The first step is to divide your hair into sections and curl it how you normally do. You can use a curling iron, wand, straightener, whichever you prefer!
  2. Okay, so after you have curled all of your hair, take your fingers and run them through your hair. The goal is to loosen up the curls and separate them. You can also use a wide-toothed comb for this step instead of your fingers!
  3. Take some dry shampoo and spray it throughout your hair, on the roots and the curls. This will “dirty up” your hair and make it a little messier. I also use sea salt spray to mess it up a bit.

See how easy it is to get “second day” curls on the first day? Super-duper easy! Let me know in the comment section if your “second day” curls turned out cute!

Make Your Straight Hair Wavy

Raise your hand if you have slick, straight hair. Now wave it like you just don’t care. If you have your hand in the sky, then I have great news for you. You can still get those beachy waves or curls you have been longing for! Stay tuned to find out how.

Use a diffuser: Did your blow-dryer come with an odd cone shaped contraption with prongs on the end? That, myhair-dryer-diffuser-clipped-tutorial-for-men-hair-care
darling, is a diffuser, and it is going to be your new best friend. When you have damp hair, hang your head upside down and face the prongs of the diffuser towards the ceiling, scrunching your hair as you dry it.

Mousse it up: Mousse is your new go-to gal pal. Without this product, your straight hair stands little chance of gaining those bouncy flouncy curls you dream of. Before using your diffuser or any heating tool, work mousse into your hair with your fingers.

Snooze in braids: This is the oldest trick in the book. For quick, easy waves, braid your locks and sleep on ‘em. This also saves your hair from being damaged by the heat of your blow dryer or curling iron.

So, my straight-haired honeys, there is hope for you yet! Use these tips to give your hair a little extra somethin’ somethin’.

XOXO, Chels

Do you ever watch mermaid movies and envy their long, wavy, beautiful locks? Well I found a way to mimic that hair style and get that beautiful beachy look! Here is how:

Wash your hair and let it air dry. You need to complete this hair style when your hair is just a little damp. Start on the side of your hair where you usually part it. Start twisting your hair. Take two small sections from the front of your head and start to twist. Each time you twist the two strands together, add a little more hair to each strand. Keep twisting your hair like a crown around your head. Twist until you get to the end of your hair and secure the twist with an elastic. Pull the end of the twist up and secure it to the top of your head with some bobby pins. Sleep with your hair in this twisty concoction and wake up a mermaid! This hair style is super quick and it doesn’t require any heat, so it doesn’t damage your hair! Sweeeeeet!

Hello Girls!

            Wavy hair is my go-to hair.  It’s so effortless and great when you don’t feel like doing your hair.  Unfortunately, some of us are born with pin-straight hair or you have such thick hair it takes hours to curl.  I’ll show you a few easy ways to get beautiful waves without using a curling iron. Chelsea Crockett- braided waves

            If you have thick, long hair, sleep in a long French braid at night.  When you wake up in the morning, take the braids out, and run your fingers through your hair.  You’ll have pretty waves in a flash!  If you have thin or short hair, I wouldn’t recommend this.  Your hair will look kinked and your ends won’t lay flat. 

            For those of you with thin or short hair, twist or braid small sections of your hair and run a straightener over it a few times.  This will create very soft waves.  Make sure to apply a small amount of hair spray so your waves don’t go flat.  If you have curling moose, layer it throughout your hair to keep the curls in place.  My favorite is Marc Anthony Strictly Curls foam or Curl Envy.  Love your hair and love your curls!
