A few years ago, back when I first started my channel at the beginning of 2012 , I shared a tutorial on how to do overnight curls. I have used this method for years and over that time I've learned the easiest way to use this technique. Here you can see how to french twist your hair before going to bed so that when you wake up you will have the perfect beach waves. This method is best for straight to wavy hair as it will give waves in the direction that you want. I like using a french twist because it helps to enhance my waves and gives them a more natural look then a french or three strand braid.
Depending on your hair thickness determines how many time you use this french twist method. If you have fine to medium thickness, I would follow the tutorial exactly as shown. But if you have thick hair I would recommend layering your french twist. This is done by parting your hair from left to right just like its shown in the tutorial. Then with each side you make a parting horizontal splitting it into two sections. Then I would create two rope braids and simply layer them on top of each other. This will make sure that your waves aren't too big that they just fall out.
The smaller the french twist, the smaller the waves, the bigger the twist the bigger the waves! Hope you guys enjoy this updated tutorial! And let me know what your favorite overnight curl method is!
