Wavy Hair Made Easy


Having thick hair, trying to get my hair into any kind of hairstyle is a challenge. Luckily with a few products, tools and a bit of patience I've found a routine for wavy hair that works!

This isnt really a tutorial as its pretty straightforward enough but I'll go through the steps. On my hair, I need some heat to style so I used the Toni & Guy Deep Barrel Waver* to create beachy style waves.


The deep barrel waver is a jumbo style waver to create waves with a 32mm barrel and ceramic tourmaline plates to protect hair and colour. It heats up super quick and upto 200 C - I put it on the hottest setting as my hair is really thick. I placed my hair into sections and used the styler on the underneath section of hair first. With these plates I placed them over my hair and clamped them for around 20-30 seconds. On thinner hair you wouldnt need to hold them for as long. I found with this styler, you need to clamp and unclamp the tool as you move down the hair, otherwise it wont work. I did this for my whole hair and it took around 30-40 minutes but as I said, my hair is really thick so it always takes quite a long time to style. Before using the waver, I sprayed each section of hair with the Loreal Elnett Satin Heat Protect Styling Spray. I love this spray as not only does it protect from heat damage but it smells incredible and rules out any flyaway hairs, which is something I get a lot of even when I go to a salon.


After using the hair styler, I spritzed the Vo5 Give Me Texture Dry Texturising Spray underneath my roots to give it a bit more volume and body. so far I'm liking this spray but you need to spray it from a distance or it leaves a white cast on your hair. Finally, on the ends of my hair I used Fudge's Salt Spray* to add extra texture and hold. This stuff smells incredible as it has a coconutty scent. 
This is a really easy hair routine for anyone wanting to create waves in their hair. Using a texture spray gave my hair a slight beachy effect and kept my hair in place all day. I created this style yesterday but after sleeping on it and brushing my hair it dropped out today just leaving a slight wave in my hair so its best suited for an event. Whats your favourite routine for creating waves or curls?


  1. I'd love to give this a try. I have really thick hair too, but I love to have waves and curls in it and it takes me ages. I'm always on the lookout for new styling tools. I already have both the VO5 texturising spray and Fudge Salt spray and love them both. xxx
