Day 1 (wash day):
Before blowing your hair dry, apply a liberal amount of mousse. This will help add body as well as hold the curls. It’s an alternative of using mousse on each strand before curling… remember THIS tutorial? Not having to apply mousse to each strand cuts the time significantly while achieving effortlessly looking curls!
Day 2 (5 min – touch up):
Since the curls are looser to begin with, you’ll need to touch up in the morning. You won’t need to section your hair in 3 layers like you did on Day 1. Rather, apply a fine mist of hairspray to the strands that seemed to lose the curl the most. Then proceed to curl. The product already in your hair from yesterday will now REALLY work it’s magic. Day 2 looks even better and more natural, in my opinion.
Day 3 (3 min – dry shampoo & leave it be):
Since you already have plenty of product in your hair, only add dry shampoo to the roots to add some body and life back into it. I use the wand at the base of my roots again (as shown in the video) to “perk” it up a bit. Sometimes I’ll touch up a few curls (mainly around the frame of my face) but I don’t add additional hairspray. Other than that, I let it fall out more. This is a completely different look than Day 1 or 2 but it’s cute!
Day 4 (your choice):
If you can go this long without washing your hair, SPORT IT! Depending on your mood you can keep with the Day 3 regimen or go back to Day 2.
Day 5 (it’s time):
PSSST! Oh and when you sleep, I’ve found it’s best to just leave it down. The few times I’ve tried sleeping with it up, I ended up with a big kink where the ponytail was AND my curls fell out even more.
One more thing and then I promise I’ll shut my yapper. If you try it and find it successful tweet me a pic @xoPinkPistachio with hashtag #10mincurls I’d LOVE to see your results!
