Who wants sexy waves for Valentine’s Day?!
I’m not much of a Valentine’s Day kinda girl, however, any night where I can get dressed up and go on a date night, is a win for me.
So really, this post isn’t JUST for Valentine’s Day. But I thought, since the day is coming up, and restaurants will be full of couples celebrating, I thought I would share tips on getting sexy, voluminous waves in like 10 seconds.
Here’s the thing – I love getting dressed up, but like, if I have to wash my hair, I’m turned off by the whole thing, and I’d rather just stay home with my dirty hair. You know? LOL
I like to go a week, maybe 8 or 9 days without washing my hair. (Sorry babe!) This is no secret btw. I’m very open about this and more people should jump on the bandwagon. No one is saying you need to go as long as I do, but you should wash less.
Washing your hair less preserves the natural oils in your scalp and actually overtime you won’t need to wash your hair as much as you do. Over-washing your hair with shampoo leaves your hair dry and brittle. This leads to your scalp going into oil production overload trying to replenish the oil that was stripped away thanks to sulfates in shampoo.
So, point is, don’t over-wash your hair. I posted this video on IGTV and let’s just say my hair was not clean. There are some staple products I use when I’m getting to say 5 or 6 of not washing.
Check out how I get my sexy waves for Valentine’s date night in 10(ish) seconds.

There's some days I just don't want to wash my hair. Okay, most days! So, sue me. However, when I'm reaching the 5th or 6th day of not washing, I'm into a VERY specific hair routine. Because I still need it to look presentable. I'm using my favorite curling wand by @sultrabeauty and a few of the best hair products by @designmehair. These products were made for me!! Design Me Hair just gets it!
Products used in the video:
DESIGNME HAIR PUFF ME DRY TEXTURIZING SPRAY – I started with this. In order to get your unclean hair ready for some hot tools, you need to add some texture. By day 5 or 6 your hair is starting to get oily, and you need some texture. I sprayed this all over my hair and worked it in with my fingers.
SULTRA BOMBSHELL CURLING WAND – This has been one of my favourite curling wands ever! It is very lightweight and extremely powerful without burning off your hair. It’s super easy to use and gives you the bouciest curls. These are some of the features:
- Advanced Care Ceramic Technology.
- Ideal for any hair type –ultra fine to thick and course.
- Locks in your style for long-lasting wear.
- Includes complimentary Bombshell Clip-less Iron Styling Glove and Iron Pad.
- Durable, lightweight construction.
- Rapid heat-up and heat recovery.
- Auto shut-off safety feature.
- 9-foot, no-tangle swivel cord.
DESIGNME HAIR HOLD ME HAIR SPRAY – This hairspray is amazing because it’s got three different holds right on the bottle that you can choose from. So if you’re looking for more bouncy, soft curls, you can choose ‘low’ and get the perfect spray for softer curls. If you need medium-hold, then just choose ‘medium’. And of course, if you want extra strong hold, choose the ‘high’ setting. There’s a little dial right on the spray top. Such a good hair spray! I’ve been using it for years.
DESIGNME HAIR PUFF ME POWDER – Oh em gee. This might actually be my favourite product of DesignMe. This little bottle is a lifesaver sometimes! I have 4 bottles at ALL TIMES. One in my purse, one on my dresser, one in my bag, and one at the office. JUST IN CASE. You just never know when you’re having an oily moment in your scalp and just need a quick spritz of this stuff. It instantly volumizes your hair and takes away any oils from the scalp. You can use it for a little OOMF as well!
And that’s it! Quick, easy, and sexy waves for Valentine’s Day. Do we love this or what?
