So often it feels like we want the opposite of what we get! Girls with looser waves often want tighter ones, and those with tighter waves often want loser ones.
If you’re someone who often gets tighter waves or spirals but prefers that looser, beachy waves look – this post is for you!
Can You Change Your Natural Curl Pattern?
I have a blog post on wavy hair curl patterns. In that post I talk about how my hair can have pieces that range from 1C-2C in different sections and/or on different days. It’s very common for people to have a range of curl patterns naturally.
It’s also common for hair to have a range of possibilities depending on how it’s styled. I have a blog post where I attempted to show proof of how wavy hair technique matters more than products. Technique can make a big difference in outcome. That’s what much of this blog post is about, is sharing techniques that can give you results in the looser end of your curl pattern.
Can you truly change your natural curl pattern? No, not naturally, anyway. There are chemical relaxing treatments you can have done if that interests you. Or, it’s possible that as you age your body will make natural changes that will change your hair. Many people see their hair get curlier or straighter after hormone changes such as puberty, pregnancy, childbirth or menopause.
My hair without product, and brushed out. This isn’t a look that I like on myself. However, I don’t have much natural definition. Others with naturally wavy hair can get some really voluminous, soft waves if they brush their waves out.
