Wash hair

Use Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo and Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Conditioner to deeply nourish and smooth out your hair. It’s best to start with clean hair specially on this lazy day.  Then, let it dry on its own; you’re not in a big hurry anyway.

Create three sections

Divide your hair vertically into three even sections, then tie back the middle section into a low, loose ponytail.  Do this on dry and tangle free hair.

Twist and tuck

Wrap the right section over the top of the ponytail and twist the two together. Pin the twisted sections onto your hair. Then, grab the remaining section and tuck it under the other two. Pin it as well. Your hair should resemble something like a bunch of bananas together in a clump.

Loosen up

Pull small sections of hair from the side of you face using your thumb and index finger. This will create a stylish bedhead look, with the loose sections of hair framing your face.
