Thank you to Got2b for sponsoring this post.
I've been using Got2b's brand new Volumaniacs line to extend my usual style of natural, texture-heavy waves, and the results have been ace. I stick to my usual hair-washing schedule of about once a week with a blonde shampoo and a conditioner (alternating every week with a deep conditioning hair mask), and a sea salt spray for that just-off-the-beach look, and then follow the steps below. It's a great base style for a messy ponytail, a braid crown, half-top knot...the list goes on.
If you have any questions about the process or any other hair questions, ask away!
