Step 01: Start with clean hair. Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo and conditioner like the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo and Conditioner for soft and frizz-free strands.

Step 02: Soak out the excess water and leave your hair to air-dry. Work some frizz-control serum like the TIGI Bed Head After Party hair serum for Shine and Frizz Control on your damp hair. This will help tackle frizz and also lend a beautiful shine to your tresses.

Step 03: After your hair is about 90 percent dry, go ahead and grab your rollers. Open one roller and insert a one-inch hair section into it. Place the roller at the end of your hair and roll it upwards, towards your head.

Step 04: When you reach the scalp, secure the roller in place. Repeat this for the rest of your hair.

Step 05: Because this is a no-heat method of curling your hair, please don’t expect instant results. We recommend using foam rollers before bed as it’s best to wait for 6-8 hours to get the desired results. Also, once the rollers are in place, wrap your entire head with a silk scarf to prevent frizz caused by friction with the pillowcase.

Step 06: It is now time to reveal those beautiful waves. Open each roller and gently remove them one by one. Tousle and tease your hair just a little bit to open the curls. Don’t forget to spritz on some Tresemme Compressed Micro Mist Invisible Hold Natural Finish Smooth Hold Level 2 Hair Spray all over to keep your curls in place throughout the day.
