Carefree Boho Curls Hair Tutorial

As some of you may remember, I have naturally curly hair. I don’t wear it like that often, but it does come in handy when I want to try different styles. I have this one relaxed boho look I like for summer, so I wanted to share it with you! I will be using John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Styling Spray to relax the curls a little since I won’t be blowdrying much or using a flat iron.

First, spritz your wet hair with John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Styling Spray. Next, you’re going to french braid (or regular/American? braid) your hair and let it sit for a couple hours. If you can’t wait, just blowdry it in the braid. I used the blow dryer for about 2 minutes.

When it’s almost dry, go ahead and let the braid out and let it finish air drying. The straighter your hair is naturally, the longer you should leave the braid in. Since my hair’s curly, I didn’t need to leave it in that long. The braid helps reduce frizz and volume in my case.

Next, pull some strands of hair from around your face and braid them. I used my bangs and some of the surrounding hair. It’s a great method of getting your bangs out of your face! Anyway, braid each side and pull them together in the back and tie with either a clear elastic or a little ribbon. I used twine.

And that’s it! If your hair isn’t all the way dry yet, you can just let it continue to air dry as you go about your day.
