Forget blow drying, flat ironing or curling for a trendy wave look! The hottest wave look is “air dried.” For the easiest, softest, sexiest hair…do almost nothing.
First step is to blot shampooed hair dry with a cotton t-shirt or turkish towel, avoiding terry cloth, as it produces frizz.
If your hair is STRAIGHT- And you want wave, apply SoZo Gel Mousse, divide hair into four sections, twist sections of hair and let dry. Re-twisting occasionally during the drying time will add more pronounced wave. Four loose braids is another way to get wave, don’t braid too tight or hair will crimp. Remove braids before hair completely dries.
If your hair is WAVY- Apply SoZo MIRACLE and SoZo Gel Mousse, divide hair into four sections and twist or braid. Another option is to pull hair up in a top knot and secure with a bob pin, leaving the last three inches of hair out so they don’t curl too much.
If your hair is CURLY- Apply SoZo MIRACLE and SoZo Zero Frizz, pull hair up into a high ponytail and secure with a loose scrunchie. Separate pony into two sections and twist or braid.
Once hair is dry, lightly run hands through to separate. Fine hair usually takes about an hour to dry, course hair will take about three hours. This is if air is getting to the hair, if braided or in a top knot it will take longer. If needed, add a blow dryer on LOW. Blow close to and toward the scalp, letting the air bounce from the scalp out toward mid-shaft and ends. On the mid lengths, braid or top knot, hold section secure and blow where needed, don’t let the dryer blow so hard it causes the hair to fly and separate.
If a dent occurs from a hair band or scrunchie, a flat iron or curling iron can be used on that area to reshape the bend into a wave.
