How To Get More Wear Out of Your Hair (Tutorial)

Hello, hello! This afternoon I am continuing HWG Beauty Week with a video I promised you weeks ago. (Are you getting sick of these yet?)

Back in November, I debuted a How I Curl My Hair tutorial, and the positive feedback encouraged me to then film How I Scrunch + Tight Curl My Hair.

In those videos, I demonstrated my around the barrel and away from the face curling technique using a curling wand, along with how I create the look of tight curls vs. loose curls.

Today, I am sharing how to make that hairstyle last for days… i.e.:

How To Get More Wear Out of Your Hair (Tutorial)

Because who really washes their hair every single day anymore?

Before I get going, let me just throw this out there…

This is a judgement-free zone, people.

On average, I only wash my hair two to three times a week. Really. For those of you who don’t know already, my hair has a very weird frizzy, thin, but looks thick natural wavy/curly texture to it. Without blow drying and styling it, it isn’t pretty, and I wouldn’t wish the same hair upon my worst enemy.

Dealing with it pre-straightener days was a real treat.

I guarantee that the majority of pictures I post of myself, I am rocking at least day-old hair in them. A lot even have two-day-old styling, but you would probably never know!

To be one hundred percent real with you, I have been known to go three to four days without washing my hair, depending on what my activities look like. I started getting into that habit when I added a dark red tint to my hair, since it tends to wash out so easily.

If you’re thinking that’s gross or that you had no idea, that just means I am doing a good job at getting the most wear out of my hair and this is why I am sharing my ways! (Stop judging me.)

Per usual, I guess my techniques are best described in person, or in this case, via YouTube. I hope you enjoy it!

How I Scrunch + Tight Curl My Hair (Tutorial)

Hello, hello! I have something very fun to share with you this afternoon, and I am kind of surprised it already all came together.

Back in November, I debuted a How I Curl My Hair tutorial, and I got great feedback on it. In that video, I demonstrated how to go around the barrel of a curling iron or wand, along with my techniques of how to create tight curls vs. loose curls.

Since then, I have received several requests to share how I scrunch and tight curl my hair, so I am here to deliver!

First things first, let me throw it out there that I was born with naturally curly hair. Well, kind of curly. Without styling it, it air dries somewhere in between curly and frizzy, and it’s not cute.

I am certainly not one of those people who can shower and get on with my day while letting my hair air dry, so I always have to style it. Some days I go straight, while others I go curly.

Most recently, I have been rocking the scrunched curl look, and I have received a lot of compliments on it. To be honest, it isn’t any harder or more time consuming than styling my hair in any other way. Just different.

How I Scrunch and Curl My Hair video

To help show you my ways, I filmed a video with me going through the process of getting ready. It begins with me right out of the shower and ends with me ready to get out the door.

I have edited and cropped it down to under ten minutes to spare you the boredom. I hope this helps!
