Step One: Wash your hair
I tend to use a nourishing shampoo and conditioner to protect my hair and keep it smooth and shiny. Currently I am using Moroccan oil shampoo and conditioner. Try to wash your hair no more than every other day so that you don't dry it out.
Step Two: Use an oil treatment
I always put an oil treatment in my hair after I wash it. It protects the ends and keeps your hair healthy. It also works to protect it from the heat. I am currently obsessed with an oil treatment called Fekkai PrX Reparatives, its amazing.
Step Three: Blow-dry
Most of the time I let my hair air dry but if I really want volume I'll blow dry it. Use a round brush and curl the pieces upward away from you head in order to achieve maximum volume.
Step Four: Style
First off tease your hair. This is important unless you are lucky and are born with voluminous hair, in which case I am extremely jealous. Tease small pieces of your hair and spray with a lightweight texturizing spray. Then curl your hair in small pieces. I use a 1 1/2 in barrel and use it like a curing wand, wrapping each piece around the barrel. Make sure to leave the end out so that it gives you a beachy look. Only hold the pieces for a few seconds. Run your fingers through your hair to loosen it up and now you're a mermaid <3
