How to Curl Your Hair in 2 Minutes

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 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.

  1. I have a stubbornly straight hair. I noticed that 3 hours after curling it, it will be back to being straight no matter what product I use. I will try your recommedation and see how it goes. Also, I have tried permanently curling my hair before but after six months, it was all frizzy. I had to cut it super short and it is now back to straight. Lol. I really need to see if the products you adviced will work foe me. Thanks you for sharing this.

    • Pitin,

      That must be annoying. You know, some girls would love to have straight hair all the time!

      But anyways, I really think Hot Off The Press will help you keep curls in your hair. Give it a shot and tell me how it went!

  2. Thank you for sharing!! 🙂
    My hair is really quite fine, and curls tend to fall out ridiculously easily 🙁 Does the heat spray you use work for all hair types?
    Also, can I use the same method with hair straighteners… Or will the effect be more square like and look unusual??
    Thanks!!

    • You’re welcome!

      Yes the heat spray works perfectly for all hair types. And I’m not sure what you’re asking. Do you mean using the dividing your hair method to straighten? If so, I wouldn’t recommend that. You should clip sections of your hair to the top of your head for straightening, working your way up. This will ensure that your whole head of hair gets straightened evenly. I don’t use Hot Off The Press when straightening, only curling. I use Milkshake Incredible Milk for straightening.

  3. This is a lovely site, clear and concise and very colourful and vibrant. I’ve had a look around and the tips and tricks for gorgeous hair are useful. It’s especially helpful for the youngsters who may be inexperienced in doing their own hair.
    Can you tell me if your ‘grow new hair treatment’ is available in the UK? I would like to try it out but buying it from ‘across the pond’ does often lead to delivery problems so I prefer to buy it from a UK distributor. Ches

  4. I love this post. So, I wasn’t expecting you to mention curling kink-curly hair which I have. Some women with this hair type don’t know that curling your hair can cause heat damage. That’s why I tend not to curl with a curling iron. What they can do instead, is use rollers which give you the same results. I’m happy you provided a link as well for that. I liked the types you gave for curling hair, like for thick hair and thin hair. It’s great that it only takes two minute since most women don’t have time to spend a lot of time on their hair, so this is a plus.I also liked that you mention getting hair, skin and nails for thinning hair. That’s been a problem for me, so I’m going to try them to see if it works for me. I’ve bookmarked this page and I hope to see more content from you. Thanks, for the info.

    • Ashley,

      I’m glad you see my honestly and my effort to help women with all hair types. Maybe you would like to do a guest post sometime on how you take care of your hair type. It’s great hearing from all types of women because each hair type needs its own very specific care.

      Let me know how the Hair, Skin, and Nail vitamins work for you! They’re guaranteed to help.

  5. Oh my goodness! an amazing article dude. Thank you for this. Curling my hair always took me FOREVER

  6. Hello Gina,

    Loved this tutorial. Do you think a curling wand it’s better than a curling iron? I have a curling iron and I feel like it takes me so much time to curl my hair, but I usually divide my hair in more sections.

    Thanks for the tip with holding the hair a little bit after you curl it. I usually used to let it open and if I don’t use hairspray my curls are gone within a few hours.

    Cheers,
    Cristina

    • Cristina,

      I definitely prefer a the curling wand over a curling iron so yes. When I curl my hair I usually do 3 sections, the bottom, middle layer and the crown of my head. It’s super quick with the wand.

      And yes, it’s cool how a little trick like holding the curl makes a big difference in how the curls turn out.
