Creating waves without a curler

I use a straightener or if no staightener and I want loose curls or waves I put my hair in two braids. But if you can't braid this post is pointless lol

Sorry should be clearer. I wet my hair then braid it and leave it overnight then it's wavy for about two days.

I luff it. Curls, waves, straight...it's the bestest.

Handful of mousse -> turn head upside down -> scrunch through ends -> flip back over.
Done and done.

Plait wet hair, leave it until it drys, take it out and your left with beautiful waves.
Or if you want tighter curls, you can do rag curls using fabric, you'll need wet hair, brush out and part, seperate your fringe if you desire, then take the rag and roll the section of your hair from bottom to top, not too tight otherwise it wont dry then tie the rag under your hair, don't do one side at a time, otherwise you wil lhave one side of super tight curls due to hair being wet and a not so tight side of curls as your hair will dry, so you kind of need to go from side to side then do the back. Sleep on it or hold to together with a cap of some sort. Gently untie and brush, it will look fluffy, pop some mousse in and smooth out curls. it's a bit of trial and error the first few times, but the result you get is so much better then any curler will give IMO. If my instructions are too hard to follow their are plenty of online tutorials with photos/videos etc. You can tie the rags looser to give a more softer curl/wave.

You pretty much just need pins (hair pins/bobby pins) to do it, and time. You just make little rolls all over you head, pin them, then leave them for ages. You'll get old-school waves...

Otherwise there's a way to do it with a straightener...
Or you can use rags and brush the hell out of them when you're done...

Thank you so much ladies! I'm going out to a cocktail bar tomorrow night and really want to do something different with my hair that'll make me feel sexy. I used to do it when I was a teen but I've completely forgotten how to do it!
Thank you all so much for your help. I'll check out the link as well.
