Yes, they make crimpers, but who wants to buy another hair appliance?
Crimping is easy enough with braids.
-small hair ties
-anti-frizz creme (optional)
In order to get your hair to crimp well, your hair needs to be damp. The best way to do this is shower and then wait a bit until your hair is somewhat dry, but still damp.
Braid your hair in tiny little braids and tie them off with the small hair ties. I used rubber bands. I would not suggest doing that, because I basically had to tear out my hair to get them out the next day. Just use hair ties that are made for your hair. Make sure to braid all of your hair like this, all the way up to your scalp. When you're done, it should look like the picture below (the braids can be smaller if you want. That is up to you).
Go to bed! Crimping takes time if you do it this way! I did all the braiding the night before.
4. Take out the braids
When you wake up in the morning, take out your braids at the end of your morning routine. Just so you know, you might want to add a little more time in your schedule to do this; it takes a little while to take out all those tiny braids. My roommate had to help me, otherwise I was going to be late to class.
5. Brush you hair
Brush out you hair. It will probably bush out a bit. If that bothers you, you can use anti-frizz creme. Be careful when you do this though, because it will cause the texture to fall out sooner if you use too much. You don't want that.
Hairspray your hair to make sure the texture holds!
Viola! You now have gorgeous, crimped hair! Below is the finished look!
