No heat waves

Hi guys!
So my mom saw this on pintrest the other day and we decided to try it out. It is a no heat way to get some nice beachy waves. It ends up looking tight right away, but once it falls it looks amazing. So let's get started.
You'll need some pins I used bobby pins and a headband. 
So first you'll need to start off with damp hair. I showered and let my hair air dry for around 45 minutes to 1 hour before I started. You're going to want to make sure that your hair has some water, but isn't soaked. 
Then you put the headband around your head. Leave the back of the headband over your hair rather than under it. Take the first section by your ear and wrap it over and under the head band. Take the same section and a little more and wrap it over and under the head band. Continue this on one side of your head until you reach the back. Repeat this on the other side of your head, but making sure you are wrapping it opposite from the way you wrapped the first half. Otherwise your curls would all go one way. When you reach the back, you're going to have a "ponytail" of hair. You are going to take this and wrap it over and under the back of the headband until you run out of hair. Then, take the pins and pin it in place so that it won't unwind when you sleep. Then go to sleep for the night. It is comfortable to sleep in, which is good because that is something I was worried about. 
In the morning, unpin the back of your hair and shake it out. You can spray your hair if you want to, and I combed through mine with my fingers to separate the waves. As you go through the day, they soften a little bit and while they still look beachy, they look way less intense. 
Let me know what you think of this in the comments and let me know if you have any questions!
