If you've ever curled your hair with a curling iron or straightener, then you know how time-consuming this type of styling can be, especially on long hair or when styling thick hair. What if we abandoned these tedious techniques to implement an ultra-simple trick that only takes a few minutes to wave our lengths? In addition, it is done with a simple hairdryer!
It is well known that we are rarely satisfied with the nature of our hair. When they are curly, we often regret their indiscipline and their volume, and we dream of straight hair, while when they are naturally straight, we would like them sublimated with waves that infuse movement and volume into the hair. Fortunately, styling devices are our allies in transforming our hair upside down and helping us achieve the look we like the most. Multifunctional curling iron and straightening iron in the head, these clever beauty devices have the answer to everything and succeed both in flawlessly straightening hair and creating pretty curls in our lengths. Only downside: achieving our favorite hairstyle then takes us a lot of time, especially if we have long hair or a lot of hair. A fatality? Apparently not! On Douyin - the Chinese name of TikTok - a hairdresser who shares his achievements under the pseudonym yhd13141314, has indeed unveiled a super easy to reproduce technique to curl your lengths without a curling iron or styler, in just a few minutes. Enough to save precious time for styling when you have long hair!
Here is her video, taken on Instagram by the @dresshow account, which shows us that you can sport pretty curls with a simple hairdryer and a little ingenuity:
As you can see in the video above, the technique is pretty straightforward and doesn't even require wet hair first. Everything resides in the way in which the hair is twisted before heating it thanks to the blow of the hairdryer, which then makes it possible to create waves in the lengths very easily, and above all: very quickly!
What you will need:
Step 1. Bring your hair back so that your entire length is at the back of your neck.
Step 2. Separate your mass of hair into two equal parts, without really drawing a parting in the middle.
Step 3. Then twist the two large strands of hair created, twisting them between them, and making sure to tighten the strands to obtain a beautiful twist of hair.
Be careful when twisting your two quilts because the beauty and regularity of your waves depend on the way you make your twist, much like when you curl your hair by making one or more braids to obtain curls without heat. .
Step 4. Making sure to keep the twist intact, take your hair dryer and heat the twist by passing the hot air blast of the device from the top to the bottom of the twist, several times, while the heat does its work.
Step 5. Let the hair twist cool for a few seconds.
Step 6. Carefully untie the twist, then run your fingers just as gently through your hair so that your wavy lengths unfold.
Here you are with pretty curls at the length, in just a few minutes.
You just have to fix everything with a styling product if you want to wear beautiful curls for as long as possible.
