    Curlers? :P I'd suggest a Straightener but you don't want to damage your hair so I suppose it's not an option?

    No, trying not to use heat on my hair (a hairdresser cut it with a razor almost 2 years ago and I still suffer with split ends because of it and have to be really careful with what I do with my hair!).

    you could try braiding it overnight or drying it with a curling brush, but I'm not sure how effective that would be.

    Use heat protection spray! and if your hairdresser cut your like that 2 years ago and you've since had it cut properly, that's not what's causing your bad hair. Do you heep your hair clean and tidy and not do things like back-combing? Use intensive conditioning masks - they make hair lovely
    You could section your hair into small sections (maybe divide your whole hair into about 10 sections) and twist them into buns when wet. Then let the hair dry, undo the little buns and spray with hairspray

    wash your hair in the evening, without using too much conditioner as i find this makes the waves fall out. whilst wet, without any drying, scrunch hair repeateadly until the curls become defined. then you can either plait tightly (better when french plaited) or screw up into a high bun. if you do the bun, it's a bit more effort but looks more natural i think, making sure it's tight and scrunched up. when you wake up the next morning take out all clips/bands and it will still be quite damp, scrunch a bit, then apply mousse. i then apply quite a lot of mousse and curling spray (tresemmé, really good!) if i want it curly rather than wavey. Sometimes the front bits need a quick curl with a tong but the rest is fine, especially if you separate the layers (or fake this), ie. clipping the sides up so the curls look like they fall at different levels - especially at the back this makes it really curly.

    For some really curly bits, get a few wet strands before hand and coil them up into a spiral then simply pin to the head. these go really curly!

    Hope this makes sense, is easier than it sounds! I love doing this to my hair.

    you'd have to pin them, or plait them whilst wet before you go to bed - which can be somewhat uncomfortable.

    Wash your hair before bed, don't dry it, and put in bendy curlers. Then you sleep with the curlers in, take them out when you wake up in morning, and you have curly hair. Bit of hairspray and they stay in pretty well all day.
    I tend to put the curlers in, then use the hairdryer for 5-10 minutes so it's not quite as wet and minging for when I'm going to sleep.

    Yeh it's taken so long to get back to the condition it used to be - sometimes I backcomb it, sometimes I straighten it, sometimes I curl it.... :woo: But I'm trying so hard to keep it looking good, the split ends have got gradually better and I don't suffer with them as much as I did when I first got it cut. My hair is just quite fine, and the razor damaged it really badly... oh well!
    I think I'm going to try plaiting it and then putting it into little buns! I've never used so many kirby grips in all my life... :p:

    Maybe rollers. Or if your hair does have a slight curl or wave to it you can just use a little mousse and scrunch it whilst blowdrying.

    This really works, sometimes even too much. Looks lovely the next morning
