Style Without Stiffness
I’ve been getting some questions recently about how I achieve touchable-looking waves and curls. I’m no expert, but through a lot (and I mean A LOT) of trial and error, I’ve found a routine and products, that work for me.
How to Get Touchable Waves and Curls
I’d like to start with the fact that my hair doesn’t just look touchable soft, it actually is! I’ve discovered some products that help me achieve touchable waves and curls that actually hold up throughout the day. In fact, they even hold up for 2-3 days, with minimal touch ups!
We’ve long been fans of TRESémme. And their Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Spray products allow me to create style without stiffness for a natural, lasting hold that will move with me. Many traditional hairsprays are formulated with clunky particles that sit on top of the hair which creates build-up. But TRESémme’s Micro-Mist technology uses superfine micro-mist particles that penetrate through the top layer of hair to provide deeper coverage throughout hair.
Truly Lightweight, Flexible Hold
TRESémme’s compressed micro-mist hair sprays contain an optimized blend of polymers to give lasting hold, lightweight coverage, and humidity and frizz resistance yet still result in hair with natural and flexible movement without stiffness. This allows me to create my touchable waves and curls that last and last.
My Hair Routine
- Day 1: Wash, condition and dry hair. I then curl my hair with a 1.25″ curling iron. I wrap my hair around the barrel, so the tips of your hair end up with no curl. That’s pretty much the secret behind the wave: leaving out the ends of your hair. Another tip is to hold your curling wand upside down, so the barrel of the curling wand is pointing down toward the floor. I typically alternate curling my hair away and toward my face. After curling I add TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture spray.
- Day 2: Brush out my hair and I might add a little dry shampoo but I typically don’t need it until day 3. Then I touch up any curls that need a little attention and add TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend spray.
- Day 3: Brush hair, add dry shampoo and touch up curls. Add TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend spray.
- Day 4: Repeat day 3 process, if I can get away with it, or wash hair.
As a busy mama, this routine saves me SO much time and gives me truly touchable waves and curls! And if you’re afraid to wash your hair less frequently, don’t be! All it takes is a little commitment but once you’ve done it for several weeks to a month, it’s amazing. My hair is healthier, holds curl longer and I save a ton of time!
