and any product suggestions that arnt to pricey would be appreciatedd ! help
Maybe you could do twists on bigger chunks of hair but twist it tightly to get waves if you get me? You could also try bantu knot outs? Plaits work really well too

There are a few videos on natural hair rollersets on YouTube, and now that you're an adult (translation: not your old school rollersets when you were a child), you can really dress them up! Like when I do mine, I'll get a lil' crazy and put a few rhinestones in the front for a semi-formal or formal event, or flat twists on the side, a ponytail, or... well the possibilities are endless !

Now, you are also mentioning curls and waves in the same description of what you're looking for. I can't help you with the waves (maybe a braidout?) ...but if you want curls, especially at your length, then... read above .

Peace & love!

When I take these braid extensions out I will have a massive hair styling/picture taking sesh because i haven't really been able to experiment with products atm because i have been growing my hair. On some braids i took out, pure coconut oil is a very good sealant, I wet my hair, sprayed with pantene aqua light spray or something (using bad products atm), then sealed with coconut oil. My hair is non greasy but soft and shiny

But unfortunately I have no pics of my own, but if you google chunky twist out, braid out lot's of pics come up. Sorry for the long post lol x

Possibly try a braidout. There is a youtuber, I think her channel is Bronzeqt (@ work & cant post a link) that gives a good tutorial. I even think the link my be on the 4a forum as well. There are a lot of options for styling & experimenting is the most fun. Good luck!
