1. Bantu Knots
Bantu knots are a type of hair bun that allow your hair to remain at a certain length and keep its definition. Getting them to be perfect or small would be impossible so just try your best! Try to divide your hair so you can at least do eight to 10 knots. This also depends on how dense and curly you want your hair to be. The more volume you want, the more you will have and the smaller they should be. It’s advised to prep your hair with a setting product. Then choose your favorite wide-tooth comb to divide your hair into small or large sections. Remember, this all depends on the length of your hair. You will need to make sure you twist each section from root to tip. After you get that done, make sure to wrap the twist into a tight curl that won’t budge at the base. Secure each Bantu knot with a bobby pin. Make sure to wrap your hair in a silk wrap, scarf, or bonnet to protect the knots and curls from getting too messy as you sleep overnight. Preparing your hair into Bantu knots takes no more than five to 10 minutes! When you wake up the next morning, unravel each knot slowly and gently. Tada! Curls! Give your curls a shake and run your fingers through them to give yourself the volume you need. After you’re done, you are good to go.
Braids are always a great idea when you’re trying to maintain and keep your curls and waves after a shower or overnight. The braid keeps the curls from falling overnight and resulting in bouncier, more voluminous hair in the morning when you undo the braids.
3. A Pineapple
Okay, so here’s one you’ve probably never heard before. Pull all your hair together and make it into a pineapple. Sounds easy enough right? Well, pineappling is definitely not your “go-to” hairstyle, but it’s definitely a game-changing technique. It’s such a game-changer, you’ll wonder why you’ve never heard of this style before. In order to achieve full, natural curls, simply pull all your hair up. Make sure to pull your hair towards the top and center of your head. Try to get it near your forehead. This will help keep your curls from falling and flattening out. *Tip: When you pull all your hair together and tie it on top of your head, keep it loose to prevent indents. You can use headbands, clips, and a sleeping cap to protect the pineapple. In the morning, you can give hair your hair an extra boost of volume with a curl-refreshing spray.
4. Pin Curls
Another good idea to keep your curls from falling overnight is pin curls. If you have an especially soft texture to your hair, but you want your hair to be big and voluminous, you definitely should pin your curls at night. To do this, gather a good amount of each strand of curl, depending on how thick you want your curls or waves to be. Grip it from the bottom and start to wrap it around your index finger. Begin to roll it upward. Once you’ve got the strand of curls wrapped up until its roots, flatten it onto your scalp. You then will secure the curls with a bobby pin to keep the curls from falling overnight. In the morning, gently release each strand of hair from the pin, separate the curls, and style to your liking.
