I’m trying to use less heat and not blow dry my hair so often so I’ve been playing around with my 2nd and 3rd day curls. I honestly don’t have 2nd day curls that I can wear out. I’m still on a quest to find them but I have figured out a way to stretch my wash and go for 4-5 days without having to re-wet and re-blow dry. These 1940 waves have helped me tremendously this winter.

I usually wear my hair out the first day after I wash and go or diffuse. Then I wear my second day curls in a high ponytail with a cute accessory. Then I do flat twists. I either wear the flat twists in a style or cover them with a head wrap. After I untwist and rock my twist out or 1940’s waves seen below. I’ve been really pleased with the results of this style and it involves NO HEAT!

Below is a video on how I did the twist out and 40’s waves.


Keep in mind, while I do not fully re-wet my hair everyday I do mist it with water using a spray bottle. I’m a firm believer that water is the best moisturizer. After I mist it I add a little leave-in conditioner and/or oil depending on what my hair needs that day. Before I twist my hair I spray it with rosemary infused water on it to add shine and moisture.
