How To Scrunch Hair

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

Styles with natural wave, flips and ripples are hot this spring. To get this look you may have to master the art of Scrunching.
If your hair has a slight natural bend, wave or natural curl, follow these steps.
  1. Shampoo and condition with products formulated to improve your hair's texture and flexibility.
  2. Towel dry your hair so that it is damp, not dripping.
  3. Apply a firm hold styling aid from the root area to the ends. Hair Gel or Glaze is usually better for heavy hair and Styling Foam or Mousse usually works for fine hair. You may have to experiment to see which works for you.
  4. To dry your hair, you will either use a diffuser or let it dry naturally. Either way, you must be patient to not rush the drying process.

  5. Grab a chunk of hair, squeeze and push the ends up toward your head, causing it to 'crinkle'. If you are using a diffuser, direct the air flow toward the chunk of hair you are working with. Drop that piece of hair and grab another chunk. Repeat the process until you have worked with all of your hair. Go over it again and again until your hair is dry.
    • Grabbing small chunks of hair and working more slowly will give you more curl.
    • Larger chunks of hair will give a larger wave effect.


To save time, shorten the process by:
As soon as you get up, get into the shower.
Follow step 1
Immediately upon getting out follow step 2.
Then grab chunks of hair, wad them up and clip them to your head loosely. (The clips to use are similar to those used with hot rollers. Only without the rollers!)They must be loose enough for the air to circulate. When you have all of your hair up in clips, it will be messy looking.

Then have your coffee, breakfast and continue getting ready for work. Your hair will be air-drying at this time.
When you are dressed and have your make-up on, check your hair. If it is still very wet, use the diffuser on it.
When it is almost dry, carefully take out all the clips. Continue scrunching, using the diffuser until your hair is completely dry.
To get rid of any frizz, finish your style by scrunching some hair creme into the ends and adding spray shine.
