Ask Jenny About How To Bounce Up Natural Waves / by Jenny Strebe


Wow, what a week...between working in the salon, photo shoots and filming tutorials I have been one busy lady. And just because I'm busy, doesn't mean I have forgotten to answer your questions. Here is a question from a viewer named Angela from Mississippi. Here's what she wrote in for today's "Ask Jenny" post.


"Jenny, I need a simple way to enhance my natural waves without a sticky heavy product. Some of my hair does ringlets and some is just wavy, I can blow dry it pretty straight without having to flat iron." - Angela


Angela, thank you so much for you question! It looks like you have gorgeous blond hair. OK, so this is a tough one...I can tell from your picture that you curl/wave is definitely not consistent through out your hair. I would recommend using a diffuser when styling, a lite weight curl enhancer as well as get a hair cut that has a little bit more layers in it to bring out the curl.

Using a diffuser will help bring out the natural wave and curl. Basically its like scrunching your hair with heat and it will help give you that bounce back to your curl that you are yearning for.

With your diffuser, I'd recommend using a lite curl creme such as Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Defining Creme 8.5 oz for fine textured hair. Depending on your how thick your hair is, you may need to use a pea size to an almond size. Work the product from roots to ends. This product is great because if you want to skip the diffuser step you can. It can be used along with a blow dryer or you can just let air dry. Since your curls are so erratic, I suggest after applying your product that you take 1 to 2 inch sections and twist each piece before diffusing or air drying. This alone will help bounce up your curl and give it loads of seperation. 



Another helpful tip to bounce up those curls would be, getting a hair cut with a little bit more layers on top. The top looks a tad weighted down, if your hair had a few soft layers on top it will create more body and bounce up those beautiful curls. 

I really hope this helps you out Angela. Try these simple techniques and let me know how it goes.
