Default How do you get that movement/swing?

Hey ladies and gents. Just want to know how you get some movement or swing to your hair. With protective styles it moves but when my hair is completely dry no movement.

Cosign to what everyone else said. I wear a bun then take it down that might do the trick if your hair long enough.

I don't know. Mine stops moving when the roots dry completely. The only way it moves again is from spraying with water the next day to juicy it all up again.

...Or in a strong wind. Too bad we can't all have those Beyonce concert high-powered fans to follow us around. j/k

Actually I don't mind that my hair doesn't move around.<shrug>

I agree that the weight from more length should help.

Well, I'm MBL and if I do a wash n go, my hair doesn't move really...

Twist outs and other styles like that let it move.

LOL!

With my length, twist-outs and wind is the only thing that works on my hair.

Braidouts twistouts and products that add weight can help.
