I’m always a fan of casual ‘cool-girl-everyday’ hair. I usually do use heat on my hair almost everyday (I know, not great) unless I’m wearing my hair up. I also always like to have some sort of wave to my hair, as opposed to having it straight so I’m always looking for products that will keep the waves in my hair, and also just make my hair look better (that’s always a plus!). I came across the brand Captain Blankenship and I knew I had to give it a try, not only is the packaging super cute, but the products are natural so it’s a win win!
So in today’s post I’m going to be sharing with you how to get some pretty waves using Captain Blankenship!
Step 1: To get this look, I do like to have my hair clean. So this is more of a ‘first day’ hair look. Once I wash my hair, I will spray some of the Mermaid Sea Salt Spray on my damp hair. If I have a lot of time, I prefer to have my hair air dry, but you can still get a similar effect if you just blow dry your hair. In this instance, I did let my hair air dry the night before.
Step 2: This type of curl is kind of different than the typical curl, because I’m aiming to get a more ‘natural’ looking wave. For this look, you’ll want to use a curling wand (one with a clamp) that is about 1-2 inches. Then, take about 1 inch of hair and put in in the clamp, almost like your crimping it, and take the bottom half of hair (that is hanging out of the curling iron) and kind of lift it up. This will help guide the hair to wave.
Step 3: Next, move the curling iron down, but flip the iron around so the hair will be going the opposite way. Repeat this process all the way down and do this all over your head.
Step 4: When you’re all done, shake out the waves a bit. I don’t like to really brush my hair after doing this, because I want it to be a little piece-y. Next, use some of the Captain Blankenship Dry Shampoo on the roots, even if your hair is clean. This will just add a little extra texture. I also find that if I use dry shampoo even on my freshly clean hair, it almost stays cleaner longer (maybe only an extra day, but it’s worth it!) Last, finish off with some of the Captain Blankenship Mermaid Hair Oil just at the ends, and even a little more of the salt spray.
