Summer is the perfect season for air drying your hair, mainly because the mere thought of a blow-dryer on full blast is enough to kickstart the dreaded neck sweats! So, how can you master flawlessly air dried waves, sans fuss and sans frizz?
1/ Smooth your strands
If you have naturally quite frizz-prone hair, you need to calm your strands with a cream while they're still damp. A small amount of something like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream will keep the cuticle smooth while your hair dries, leaving you with soft, fuzz-free tresses.
2/ Add texture
To boost your natural air dried texture, spritz a texturizing product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray from roots to ends once you're hair is about 70% dry and pin it into a loose, low bun. As your hair becomes totally dry, it'll set into loose, tumbling waves with an undone, matte finish.
3/ Use your hands
While your hair dries, don't be afraid to encourage the waves with your hands. Twist large pieces of hair with your hands and leave them in position for as long as you can. Of course, moving around (even typing too quickly!) will undo the twists, but keep twirling your hair periodically and you'll end up with loose, undone curves à la Blake Lively.
4/ Get a good night's sleep
If you're washing your hair in the evening in order to have perfect tresses by morning, make sure you're sleeping on it the right way. A loose braid or low, loose bun will prevent any weird, irreversible bed head kinks so that when you wake up, you can simply shake your hair out and go!
