How has she done it? With a crimper? I used to crimp my hair in the 90s and I'm pretty sure it never looked like that confused

Plaits and sea salt spray donit

DerekSprechenZeDick Sat 01-Oct-16 16:31:14

Do it*

I can get my hair like this by plaiting it damp - lots of little ones - and leaving it to dry naturally. In no way is my hair naturally wavy either!

Loosely plait it when wet, leave to dry overnight?

Definitely not a crimper

No idea, but I plait my daughters hair at night and it looks similar before I brush it. She is only 7 so not rocking that look for school just yetsmile

How big should the plaits be? Do I need to tie the bottom of every plait? That sounds like such a faff.

Sea salt spray I have. My hair is naturally wavy, but not nice waves like this.

I do 4 in mine. My hair is long as well

GinAndOnIt Sat 01-Oct-16 16:36:45

Is that four on the same level, or divide hair into two and do two plaits on bottom layer and two plaits on top?

GinAndOnIt Sat 01-Oct-16 16:37:36

And are we talking French plaits or just normal? <clueless>

DerekSprechenZeDick Sat 01-Oct-16 16:37:41

That's what I got after 15 hours in plaits

Not wishing to be a cow, but isn't that type of hair part of a whole look? I see women with long grey hair exactly like that, or dyed red hair etc but it's not got the same vibe....

Side by side French plaits

If don't want your top half wavy then do it from ears

noeuf Sat 01-Oct-16 16:38:36

Cross posted! Doesn't apply to you op

GinAndOnIt Sat 01-Oct-16 16:42:58

What do you mean, noeuf?

I like that the lovely blonde lady has the top half wavy so I'll try French. Thank god I haven't got to buy a crimper.

noeuf Sat 01-Oct-16 16:43:41

I don't know how to explain it exactly.

Like, my 'look' would make that hair just look like messy straggles.

DerekSprechenZeDick Sat 01-Oct-16 16:43:56

No crumpets don't do that grin

Just spray with sea salt to toughen them up a bit

DerekSprechenZeDick Sat 01-Oct-16 16:44:13


GinAndOnIt Sat 01-Oct-16 16:48:14

That I can do. My hair is at least good at staying however I style it for days

Plus side to non shiny hair I suppose!

GinAndOnIt Mon 03-Oct-16 14:15:52

So. I French plaited my hair four times. I sprayed with sea salt spray. I left to dry. My hair looks nothing like that lady. I think my hair is too frizzy and thin sad

GinAndOnIt Mon 03-Oct-16 14:17:45

I'm going to replait them before I go to sleep, but maybe more plaits. Perhaps the mistake was washing hair this morning - hair is too clean maybe to hold the kink.

NantucketNightbird Mon 03-Oct-16 14:19:42

I French plaited my hair last night (hair is half way down my neck in a choppy Bob). It definitely gave it some body which it usually lacks and it has a slight wave.

This is how it looks...
