How can girls with pin straight hair get their hair to be wavy?

The best way is to start by adding a texturizing spray/beach spray. Twist the hair on both sides of the head and rough dry until completely dry. Touch up with a 1″ curling iron.

How can girls with curly hair get their hair to calm down to be wavy?

It’s best to apply a lightweight oil or cream like Couture Color Pequi Oil Treatment to damp hair. Pull hair back into a tight bun and let dry. When your hair is let out it will be a smooth wave, without having to blow dry.
