As the mercury begins to dip in fall, our hair demands extra attention and care. One of the many things that you can do to make your tresses look shiny and gorgeous in the harsh fall season is to ditch your hair dryer. And if you're looking for a simple fall hairstyle that you can do in just a few minutes, here is an easy no heat waves tutorial for you to try.
Watch the video above to create a fabulous wavy look or go through the directions below for a step-by-step tutorial on creating gorgeous waves without using any heat.
Remember, this style requires prepping your hair at night. But don't worry, we'll walk you through the process.
Get the look
The key to creating this look is to shampoo and deep condition your hair the night before. We highly recommend the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare – Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo and Conditioner to repair damaged hair and restore the health, shine and vitality to your mane. If your hair is dry, frizzy and feels more damaged than usual, go ahead and smooth-in a small amount of the Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm. You'll notice the difference this super product makes to your hair right after one use!
Since this is a 'no heat' tutorial, towel-dry your hair thoroughly to take out as much water as you can. You don't need to dry your hair completely; it's okay to leave it a tad damp.
Divide your hair into three sections and braid all the pieces separately; nothing special, just three normal braids. Secure them down using hair ties.
Take all the three braid pieces and plait them into one chunky braid on the side (because you'll be sleeping with your braided hair, a side braid will be more comfortable)
The next morning, untie the braids.
Note: If you have colored hair, spritz some Advanced Hairstyle – Color Vibrancy Root to Tip Fixer (especially at the ends where your strands are the driest) to protect your lovely locks and add instant shine.
To finish up, mist your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and scrunch your tresses gently with your fingers to create a casual, undone, wavy look.
If you have long bangs, you can twist the face-framing section and pin it to the side using a fancy hairpin. Spritz some Advanced Hairstyle LOCK It Fine Control Hairspray to secure the bangs in place and set the look!
That's it! Wear your gorgeous no heat tousled waves to work or to a party!
