I'm currently 38 weeks pregnant with DS2 and have a longish pixie cut with a heavy blunt cut fringe. My hair is texture is fine but I have loads of it and has a natural soft wave/curl. I currently blow dry and straighten my hair after washing.
I realise I'm not really going to have time to be doing this once the baby arrives and I have my 3 year old DS1 to contend with too.
Does anyone have any good product recommendations for helping my hair dry naturally with a nice curl and minimal frizz?
Ideally I'd like to be able to wash, pop some product in and that be that for the day!
I am growing out a pixie at the moment - and am at the very short bob stage. So getting curls back (used to be long).
I used to have to use quite light hair product so as not to weight the curl down as mine is fine too - but I am finding with shorter curls the light stuff doesn't actually hold it together enough and it ends up a bit pouffy and frumpy looking. So I , in exasperation used some of DH's bog standard hair wax. Nothing fancy. Nothing matt. Nothing with a faffy name. Just wax. This stuff. And it is fab. A little bit of glue as it were, to hold the curls together and a little bit of help to stop the frizz. And cheap as chips.
So - firstly try stuff your DH has maybe. Try something cheap and cheerful first. You can get this stuff in Sainsbos/Boots etc etc.
I have fine wavy hair, lots of it in blunt layers. I use any shampoo and conditioner designed for fine hair not curls and then a few drops of hair oil - again not picky about brand.
I then let it dry naturally and just run my hands through it a few times to shake the curls up.
Oil seems enough to prevent frizz and I get lots of lovely wavy curls although it's fairly random how good it looks. I am too lazy to do any more styling but if I do dry it with a diffuser there is a lot more curl.
