Embrace your waves:
A recurrent piece of advice from the stylists was, “Don’t fight what nature gave you.” Chamberlain recommends enhancing natural waves with a beach spray and just letting your hair air dry. You can apply some heat at the ends just to smooth it out a bit if this option stresses you out.
Laini Reeves, who styles Amy Adams and Emily Blunt, has another idea, involving one of her favorite natural styling products, Nohona Coconut oil. “Towel dry the hair, put a little bit of coconut oil in, twist the hair really tight all the way down to the ends, and tie it back in a little knot on the back of the head,” she recommended. “Let it dry on its own. Once you pull it out, you’ve got a really lovely dried wave and the coconut oil seals it.” [Ed. note: The oil smells delicious and comes in the cutest mermaid bottle.]
Or don’t intervene at all and take the advice of Rossano Ferretti, who gave Kate Middleton her last hair cut before she gave birth. “When hair is curly, it becomes curlier in humidity. And I want you to leave it curly,” he told me. “I don’t like treatments that straighten hair and destroy the hair. Why do you want to do that to your hair everyday?” Well, sometimes we just have to, but it’s a point well taken.
