Before styling, spray hair with a thermal protector, like Davines MELU Thermal Protecting Shield ($31), to prevent damage from high-heat styling and ensure a sexy, healthy shine.

The #1 Way To Damage Your Hair – and it’s not what you think!

Use a flat iron, like ONE Crush 1 Inch Flat Iron ($80), to create a natural looking wave without the crimp you can get with a curling iron.

After dividing hair into one-inch sections, clamp the flat iron midway down the length of your hair before twisting your wrist inwards towards your head. Quickly slide the flat iron down the entire section of hair, maintaining this position.

Make sure to twist again at the ends so they wave as well.

Peekaboo Braids!

Work quickly to ensure that curls are loose and wavy. The longer time you spend sliding the iron over the hair, the tighter the curls. Continue until all sections of your hair have been curled.
