    Default Hair styling tips

    I have (very) thick semi long hair and all I seem to do is either tie it up or straighten it.
    I can't leave it out / down after it dries naturally (way too boofy)
    I need some tips to lightly wave / flick (not really curl) it.
    I have a GHD but the one with the thick pads.
    I'm not a good stylist either!

    Have you tried drying it in braids?

    (Wash, put some product in it and tie it up into two braids. Let it dry in the braids and then unravel - instant waves)

    Otherwise, lightly curl with the GHD and then finger brush the curls out.

    Thanks. I looked at a tutorial and it suggests to spray hair with water (not wet hair completely) to avoid wet look. WDYT?
