Next, clamp down your straighteners on the plaits to heat

‘I know it look a bit silly right now but trust me, it’s worth it’.

So, how does it work? Well, by literally taking your straighteners and clamping them down at the top of each plait for around five seconds. Then, move down the plait to apply heat to the rest of the length.

Once that’s done, undo your plaits to reveal a whole head of beautiful waves. Erm, easy or what?!
