Learn how to scrunch your hair to create poppin’ curls!
What you’ll need
Learning to scrunch hair can be an excellent way to revive your curls without any heat or styling tools (yep, really!), so if you’re late to the scrunching party, it’s time to get in on the action.
Who can benefit from this scrunching method? While it’s most effective on hair that already has a natural wave or curl pattern to it, even if your hair is naturally straight, it can still help to add texture and boost volume.
So, if you want to learn all about scrunching hair (and the best hair products we recommend for it), click play on the video above or read on for the step-by-step breakdown.
The easiest way to scrunch hair for waves and curls
Step 1: Wash your hair.
Editor’s tip: Use a microfibre towel or cotton T-shirt to remove excess moisture and help reduce frizz.
Step 2: Apply leave-in.
Step 3: Use mousse.
Scrunch your hair to help encourage and enhance your curl definition. To do this, gather your hair into the palm of your hand, grip it and crumple it up (just like you would a piece of paper) and press it towards your scalp.
Editor’s tip: Flip your head upside down when you’re scrunching to help keep the volume in the roots.
Let your hair dry.
Editor’s tip: In a rush? You can use a hairdryer (on a low heat setting) to speed up the process. Just remember to use the diffuser nozzle, as this will help prevent frizz.
