How to: Get mermaid waves

Photos of me which I took last week while writing up a review for Sunplay's products. I'm still in the midst of drafting my Bangkok Part 2 post (no I haven't forgot about it!) so in the mean time I thought I'll blog about my hair!

While I was in Bangkok shopping at Chatuchak Weekend Market it was sooo hot and stuffy that I had to tie up my hair. But I didnt want to tie it up with a normal rubber band nor hair clip because it will just leave an ugly wave at the back of my head after I took it off. Like as though someone had forced me to wear a bowl over my head for hours until a round mark is visible. You get what I mean???

So I thought that I would just braid up my hair, and just as well it suited the tourist look with the fedora hat which I was wearing that afternoon. Towards the end of the day when I reached my hotel and loosened my braid, I was like Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Mermaid waves!!

Asked my mum to help me take a picture of my hair and she said that's how girls in her time get their waves (by sleeping with their braided hair) and promptly proceeded to asked why am I so vain -__-

Tried it last week and this was the result!!

So all you have to do is to tie your hair up in a tight or loose braid and perhaps sleep in it if you want it to last longer. Last week I only braided my hair for 15 minutes and the waves also went off in approx 15 minutes.

Loosen the braids and you'll get soft mermaid curls!!! If you wish to have your curls last a bit longer you can try out Liese's designing jelly or Fuwarie Prostyle Airy Curl Keeper spray. Photobucket
