Finally have this tutorial!!! We were having some technical difficulties with it lol but it is finally done and I am so excited because it is requested on the daily! I have always had STICK STRAIGHT natural hair so doing these no heat, tight waves is fun for me. I kind of envy people who have hair like this naturally! But luckily it is really really easy to achieve this look and there are three ways I get my no heat beachy waves so in the video I share all three. In these photos I had my natural hair braided and my extensions just scrunched from the salt water in the ocean and I let them air dry like that. The good thing about most hair extensions is that they are naturally wavy so when wet they scrunch super nice! You can use a mousse or salt spray if you aren’t by the ocean but you may have to wash them sooner since product does kind of start to build on them. Here in these photos I am wearing 3 extension wefts (4 clip/8 inch, 3 clip/7 inch, 3 clip/6 inch) and in the video I am just wearing 2 wefts (7 and 8 inch)! Since my hair is thinner I love the thickness.
You obviously don’t need extensions for this style and if your hair is already naturally thick then you can do just the braiding portion — I would maybe do three french or dutch braids if your hair is naturally really thick and make sure you do them really tight! They don’t have to be perfect and in fact the less perfect they are the more they will look like waves you get from the beach.
Also one more thing! When you take out your braid make sure you toss your hair around a little and break up the waves a bit – you can even add texture spray if you want but DON’T brush through your hair with a brush because it will turn into a bit of a frizz ball. If you are wanting to brush it then just brush through with a wide tooth comb 🙂
