There’s no time for anything else, so you simply put your hair up in a messy bun and get on with your paperwork, errands, chores, and personal projects. The messy bun has somehow become the default hairstyle for busy days, hasn’t it?

Wild hair is common among women with naturally curly and wavy hair—no thanks to humidity! This is why we often don’t see women leaving their natural curls or waves down. Some even go for rebonding treatments to put an end to this wild mess once and for all. But it doesn’t have to be the case. Be confident and let your hair loose. A dollop of hair mousse can help give you beautifully defined curls, so you can feel free to wear your hair down.

Editor’s tip: Style your curls with the help of VO5 Extra Body Mousse, which can give your hair volume and body without weighing it down. 

6. Sorry, I can’t hear you over the volume of my hair

Not everyone is endowed with great hair volume which is why you should feel blessed if your hair is naturally thick. If someone picks on your voluminous hair, you can always tell them how easy it is to get layers or style your hair any way you want!

If you have naturally thick hair, waves can highlight it. But if you have thin hair, don’t worry. Big, voluminous waves or Hollywood waves can make your hair look thicker and fuller. No curling iron? No problem! You can use hair rollers or even no-heat techniques like sock curls to create glam waves.

7. I am a queen crowned in my curls

Who says crowns have to be literal objects that glitter? When you feel proud of your curls (which you should be), then freely wear it like a crown! It’s not called “crowning glory” for no reason, right? Or better yet, create a crown braid to make one of these inspiring messy hair quotes a reality.

Don’t be afraid to explore different hairstyles with your curly hair. You can start with an easy one like a curly half updo with scarf. It’s a great way to flaunt that messy hair.

Editor’s tip: Love your curls and make sure they are well-nourished. Use Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Blooming Color Shampoo regularly to take care of your kulot hair. This shampoo is not just for color-treated hair. Murumuru butter can keep your hair moisturized and shiny, which is a must when you have curls that are prone to dryness and frizz.
