I have always loved curls since I have straight hair. My sister has beautiful black ringlets, and I have hair that doesn't take to curls very well unless I add a TON of heat.
I've seen tutorials all over the place on how to create lovely beachy waves without using heat by just letting your hair dry in a loose bun.
After I showered last night, instead of blow drying my hair, I let it air dry.
This is what it looks like when it's just dried with my towel and allowed to dry until slightly damp. I didn't use any product, just my general Pantene Beautiful Lengths shampoo and conditioner.
Then I threw it back into a loose bun and held it in place with a clip.
I slept on it.
This morning I left it up for about two hours after I got up, and then took it down before we made a trip to a friend's house.
I'm not sure if it would be considered a success since it's wavy but not what I expected.
Success? Fail? I'll let you decide.
