Hey loves and happy new year! I wish you all the best, love and success! So, today's post is about something I hear every-single-day. "Oh my gaud, your hair looks so good!" or "Do you wake up two hours earlier every day to make your hair like this?" are things I've heard way too many times from people at my uni. And I'm like "No, it literally takes a couple of minutes".
Just to let you know, my natural hair is straight, and I really don't want to damage them every day by curling them or whatever. Plus, within only a year, my hair grew from my shoulders to my waist. Trust me it was very damaged, I've been bleaching my hair for four years, and I 've been using heat every day. So, it really wow-ed me when it grew so fast, just by saying goodbye to heat.
However, you're not here to read how to grow your hair fast, but how to create gorgeous, voluminous curls with absolutely no heat. First things first, simply wash your hair and let it dry (I don't use blow dryer, so it takes about three hours to dry completely). Make sure your hair is fully dry, because if it's a bit wet it's not going to work.
Then simply do what this lovely girl is doing in this video, and ta-da! I prefer the second way, it makes the curls more voluminous, and I'm separating the ponytail in 4 sections, not 2 (you'll understand when you see the video). I've been doing this a couple of years now, and I always get so many compliments on my hair.
They stay like this the whole day, but I'm doing the bun every night, just to give back to the curls the shape they "lost" throughout the day. It seriously takes a few minutes to do it, and they look like you've spent the whole day on them. If you recreate this hairstyle, tag me on Instagram @venetiakamara, I'd love to see it.
