Whether your hair is naturally wavy or you need a little boost to revive your curls, here are some techniques that will make it easy for you to redefine the natural movement that is created (or not) in your hair:
Certain styling techniques can help redefine or define the waves that dot the hair. Now it's up to you to choose which one to opt for according to the desired result:
For light curls and wavy hair worthy of the name, the braid is your best ally. Perform this hairstyle on damp hair before bed and admire the result the next day when you wake up! The tighter the strands of your braid (or braids), the more defined your curls will be.
Another possible hairstyle: the bun. By wrapping your damp hair tightly around itself and letting it dry this way, you will also get curls, but this time even more relaxed than with the previous hairstyle.
For each desire its ideal hairstyle, therefore, and if what you aspire to are even sharper waves, this third hairstyle is the one for you: place a headband on your head before winding a few strands in it. of your damp and twisted hair.

Another possibility, if your hair is already naturally wavy and it just needs a boost: the texturizing product!

The most famous of them? The seawater-based spray, which gives hair the air of a vacation, with "beach waves" effect waves, just like in summer, all year round! To apply it well, just spray it all over the hair before crumpling the lengths of your hair, either using your fingers or a cotton cloth (an old t-shirt will do case) which will allow you to better define your curls.
In order to achieve beautiful curls, you can also very well use a heating device, such as a curling or straightening iron, depending on your preference. If you already have naturally wavy hair, we recommend that you decorate your hair with a few curls placed in very strategic places, by waving the strands of hair framing your face, for example. If your hair is of a smoother nature, then we recommend that you focus on the entire hair instead. To do this, you can in particular separate your hair into two equal parts that you will twist on themselves before running your straightening iron over the lengths of hair thus rolled up. Start from the top and go down to the bottom by pressing lightly for a few seconds, you're done! It's quick and easy, the curls obtained with this technique are natural and last all day.
Be careful, always make sure to protect your hair from the heat before using a curling or straightening iron.
While there are some things you should do to have beautiful curls, there are others to avoid. Sleeping with loose, wet/damp hair in particular is a very bad idea. Indeed, when you wake up, there is little chance that you will like the shape your hair has taken during the night. In general, we recommend that you do not go to bed with your hair loose, as it may flatten your pretty waves. So - before going to bed and if your hair length allows it - you can very well gather all of your hair above your head, thus forming a beautiful palm tree hairstyle that will allow you to both preserve your volume like your curls and avoid the appearance of frizz.
Another tip: between shampoos, avoid the hairbrush, or worse, the comb, which will both break your curls! Instead, detangle your hair using your fingers and reserve these accessories for detangling after you get out of the shower, with your hair still wet/damp.
Be careful, in this state, your hair is particularly fragile. So make sure you do it with delicacy and start by disentangling your hair at the ends, before gently working your way up to the roots. By doing this, you will preserve your natural curls for longer between shampoos!
Some cuts are particularly good at highlighting your wavy hair. The good news is that among them, we find both short and long!
