Thanks to products like Ovation Cell Therapy and accessories like the sock bun, even I can take my hair from limp and lifeless to full and bodylicious. There are also countless styles out there that add volume to fine hair like mine. My personal favorite is still the loose curl look. Unless you’ve never been on Pinterest (aka hiding under a rock), you’ve seen numerous ways to get these so-called beachy waves. Here’s the thing…many of the tutorials I’ve seen and tried just don’t work on my stick straight, fine hair.
So, in a state of end-of-summer denial, I went on a search and found three effective and easy ways to get those beachy waves, specifically for fine hair.
- Mini buns (overnight) – Separate almost dry hair into 5-10 pieces. The more pieces, the tighter the curl. Twirl the strand, and then curl it up into a bun. Pin or use a hair tie to secure them and make sure the ends are included in the bun. Sleep with the buns it, then simply pull them out in the morning. Some of the buns may fall out overnight so have your curling iron ready.
- Flat iron, pull and twist (30 minutes and a little practice) – I know I said “easy” in the intro above and this one isn’t difficult, but it does take a bit of practice and maybe a few You Tube tutorials. First, use Ovation’s Thermal Protection spray to avoid damage from the flat iron heat. Start with the bottom of your hair, clip the top of the hair out of the way. Hold a section (thin or thick depending on the curl you’re looking for) and pull the flat iron through the hair to about 4-6 inches away from your head. Start with one panel of the flat iron facing you. Pull a few inches then twist so the other panel is facing you. Its twist, pull, twist, pull till you’re at the end of the strand. Wait til the hair is cool to run your fingers or a wide tooth comb through it.
- Curling iron wrap around (30-45 minutes) – This is easiest if you use a curling iron similar to this. I love this particular one because it comes with a glove! Again, start by using Ovation’s Thermal Protection (link) spray to avoid damage from the curling iron. First, you’re going to separate the hair into pieces and clip the rest out of the way. Start at about 4-6 inches from your head and wrap each piece of hair around the curling iron. Using a glove makes it easier wrap the entire length of the hair without burning your fingers. Repeat those steps for each piece of hair and wait for it to cool. Lastly, run your fingers or a wide tooth comb through it.
I suggest trying a few of these out to see which results you like best, then just enjoy your voluminous, curly hair!
