Elle's Loose Curls with a Hair Straightener Tutorial

It's been highly requested, and it's finally here...

My "Loose Curls Hair Tutorial"! :D

So, without any further ado, please watch the video below for the step-by-step guide and some tips:

 The final result:

This is how I usually do my hair. If you find my wavy hair that you saw on my Instagram or anywhere else interesting, you might want to watch the video above to learn how to do it yourself! :)
I find this method to be the easiest and most convenient way to achieve that kind of curls. And quickest too (takes me about 10-15mins to get the final result)!

Anyway, I'm sorry I forgot to mention on the video that you have to make sure your hair is DRY before you curl it.

☻ I learned this technique from YouTube too!
☻ My natural hair state is straight (as you can see in the video), so this wavy hair REALLY helps to add volume to my otherwise flat hair. Love it!
☻ I actually made this video 2 months ago and planned to publish it on my birthday, but unfortunately the video quality degraded somehow after my brother edited it using Adobe After Effects. We couldn't find the problem and I was very upset, I thought it couldn't be saved and I had to record a new video (T_T). Finally, last week, I went to my best friend's house (Rudy), and I brought up this issue. He said, "It's hard to explain right now, just bring the files tomorrow and let me find out the problem."
So, the next day, I gave the files to him and 10mins later..... the problem was SOLVED!! He said it had something to do with the Codec lol. I was sooooo relieved and happy, if you're reading this, thank you Femaooo!!! 

And girlsss, thank you so much for your patience, I hope you enjoy my very first hair tutorial and can learn something from it. :)

If you have any requests or questions, please comment down below, or on the video! xx
