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 big 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 wand? No problem! You can use hair rollers or even no-heat techniques like sock curls to create glam waves.

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 a scarf.


Editor’s tip: Love your curls and make sure they are well-nourished. Use Love Beauty And Planet Hope & Repair 2 Minute Magic Masque regularly to take care of your textured hair. This coconut oil and ylang-ylang flower oil-infused deep conditioner will keep your hair moisturized and shiny, which is a must when you have curls that are prone to dryness and frizz.
