So normally when I do my twist sets, I normally just finger tousle my hair to give it a beachy look. Unfortunately, I’ve become bored with the way the results are coming out so i decided to find some ways to reinvent my hair for summer time!
First, I decided to start doing less twists. Now I only do three… they are much larger and it allows for looser curls.
I make sure to use a leave in conditioner spray to help keep my hair soft. You can even use a bit of shine serum to sit in your hair overnight. This way, you don’t have to apply the serum in the morning and risk losing your curls.
Once I wake up in the morning, I unravel the twists with my fingers, finger tousle them, and then I go through the twists with a wide tooth comb. My curls come out so much more voluminous, and they also have a more natural feel.
I’ve finally found my go-to style for summer
Let me note: My hair is about a month post-relaxer. This style works for me now, but I have a feeling that once it starts growing out that this style won’t work anymore. For now, this will be my summer style.
Some products you might want to consider using:
Motions Leave-In Conditioner
Spray GVP Silk Remedy
This style can be done with any hair type. You have to remember, your hair will do anything as long as its properly set .
Pinterest is booming with all sorts of DIY ideas, unique hair styles, and creative makeup looks… well, at least to me because that’s all I care about. So I ran across this really cute bun that was jazzed up with a twist going up the back half of the head. This style is perfect for summer styling; it also looks precise but is actually really easy to style. Check out mine:
One of my bobby pins is a little loose from movement, but other than that, the style is really cute! I sported mine with a heavy bang in the front to add a little more styling. Try this look for summer!
I’ve vowed to myself that I wouldn’t put so much heat in my hair this summer… I really need want the growth. My haircare regimen is pretty simple thus far:
- wash once a week
- deep condition twice a week
- blowdry on warm
- style in a twist-out or curls
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been wearing curls. I normally use small green foam rollers but I’ve always wanted voluminous curls. During my weekly splurge-fest at Sally’s, I was looking for the large foam rollers and I couldn’t find them anywhere… so I ran across something better… satin-covered foam rollers!
My friend during college had been warning me that the foam rollers could break my hair, and that I should cover them with something. I never listened of course, and that’s why I was so excited to find these! So far, they work great. They keep the moisture in your hair and smooth the hair cuticle. Only one problem about these: the satin covering slides off. Not easily, but something about this bothers me. Overall, it’s a great product! I’ll definitely keep using this one throughout the summer!
And look at my curls!
