Follow this guide to get the perfect curls and beachy waves you want, minus any forehead and ear burns
There's no need to wash thick or coarse hair before curling, says Moticka. In fact, it's even better to wait a day or two after your last shampoo, because your hair will hold the curls better.
1. Start with dry hair. Apply a bit of dry shampoo to your roots to give your hair extra lift and staying power, says Moticka. Try Got2B Rockin' It Dry Shampoo, $5.30.
2. Next, mist your hair from roots to ends with a heat protectant to guard against damage.
3. Finally, apply a strong-hold mousse to your entire head to define your curls (try L'Oreal Upward Spiral Springing Curls Defining Mousse, $4.99). Let it dry completely.
