Are you tired of the summer humidity ruining your beautiful blowout? Does your hair need a heat styling break?
Try this fun hack that’s quick and easy, and damage free!

 You can start by braiding damp hair (but this isn’t recommended for everyone, for some people too much moisture on the scalp for so long can cause the scalp to dry out, especially if you’re sleeping on it.) If that is the case for you, you can braid it dry, and spray the braid lightly with some water for a more defined wave. If you are doing one braid, you’ll get a soft wave. If you want a tighter wave, do 2 French braids. Make sure to loosen the bottom of your braid for more of a natural appearance.

Some of my favorite products to help with this look are ‘Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam’ and ‘Aveda Texture Tonic’ You can apply these before or after you braid your hair. I do recommend having your hair slightly damp if you are using the Phomollient.

Leave your hair braided for at least 2 hours. Once you take it out, apply ‘Aveda Light Elements Smoothing Fluid’ for a nice silky glow. If your hair is lacking moisture, apply ‘Aveda Dry Remedy Oil’ to add a beautiful healthy shine.

Now your ready for the day, and you can wear this effortless look until your next wash. Enjoy!
