How to use damp braids to achieve wavy hair

If you’re one of those rare breeds with exceptionally smooth hair, your mane may not hold bouncy waves and curls very well. Watch this easy-to-follow video to learn how you can get wavy locks that’ll last from morning to night. All you need to do to achieve this hairstyle is to place several braids around your head and dampen them with water.
If your hair adapts to this style, consider suspending your current flat-ironing routine to prevent further unnecessary damage to your strands. If giving up on hot tools is not an option, though, alternate both methods into your hair regimen.
