Easy Hairstyles and Heatless Waves for a busy morning
Knowing how to braid your own hair is a great skill to learn because you will be able to do your hair in no time in the mornings! I’m talking 2-3 minutes tops! If you braid your hair before bed and it’s a bit damp, you can create some easy heatless waves in your hair and it’s also a great way to protect your hair from damage while sleeping!
If you have a lot of lawyers in your hair, you will get a lot of hair sticking out of the braid. Some of the ends you can spray down with hairspray, but we all have hair poking out from our braids and it still looks great, so don’t worry about it!
