You don't mention your hair type so let's go with a type 2B.It all starts in the shower and I would suggest Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner.  Towel dry your hair by gently squeezing out the water in a large soft towel. Don't roughly dry it with the towel as you can cause breakage and that will make it look dry and fuzzy. Next apply Macadamia Professional Activating Curl Cream. Apply in small sections, twisting your hair into curl / waves shapes rather than combing it through and making it straight. Use a small clip at the bottom of each section to hold it in place when you dry it.  Using a diffuser on your blowdryer, turn it to high heat/ low air. Be sure your blowdryer has a cool shot button. Let your clipped sections gently lay in the diffuse and dry for 10 seconds. Then use the cool shot for 10 seconds. This will set the curls into place. Continue around your entire head this way. Once your hair is 90-100% dry, remove the clips from the ends but don't run your fingers through or break up the curls just yet.. Spray a light amount Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Spray on your fingertips and gently separate the curls to make them look less set and uniformed and more like a natural beach wave. The oil spray is really lightweight and will add shine and definition without making them to go flat. Less is more to start with and you can always add more :-)Be careful not to touch your hair too much and never brush it out during the day. Just "scrunch" it up in your hands if it needs a little refreshing.  You are good to go now. Enjoy your new look.
