Do you have trouble curling your hair? Many ladies struggle with curling; whether it’s because it takes too long or they just can’t seem to get the basics down. I’m creating this mini post to give you some tips and show you a short tutorial video.
I understand that everybody has their own unique hair type and that the steps in the video will not be this simple for everybody, but here are the basics. Begin by watching the video, then move on to the rest of the post.
1) First you’re going to want to brush your hair and separate it into two equal sections. The number of sections on each side will depend on the thickness and length of your hair. (My hair used to be thin but now it is medium from taking these Hair Skin & Nails supplements, using Grow New Hair Treatment, and doing nightly brushing with my Boar Bristle Brush). So I have to separate my hair into about 4 sections on each side.
2) Before curling each section, spray it with Hot Off The Press heat protection spray/hairspray. This keeps your hair safe from heat damage while helping to form the curl and hold it. After spraying, brush through then curl as the video shows. Do this with each section.
3) After you’ve curled each section, lightly break apart the curls with your hands. Don’t use a brush because it could create frizz problems and completely ruin your hairstyle.
Tip: For some extra volume, you can flip your head over and spray some more hairspray.
If you have difficult hair, here are a couple tips:
- For thick hair, you may have to straighten your hair prior to curling. A heat protectant/frizz stopper/amazing smelling hair perfecter I know of is Milkshake Incredible Milk. I use it on my medium hair too, after the shower. It really helps with any potential frizz and damage.
- If you have natural kinky curly hair, I honestly recommend you keep your hair natural most of the time. My friend has naturally curly hair that she has learned to love and take care of. She wrote this article about tips for curly hair.
- If your hair won’t hold a curl, I can help you with that. I created a blog post on a routine you can do to make curls last in your hair all day: What to do when your hair won’t hold a curl.
If you have any questions specific to your hair style and type, I can try to turn you in the right direction. Just leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you.
One more thing… If you’re looking to get new curling wands, check out this 6 in 1 curling wand set. It’s totally awesome. It comes with 6 different barrels that are interchangeable. Here’s a picture below.
