If you have curly hair, or want curly hair, it can be incredibly frustrating. Curls can be quick to loosen, “fall out” and droop. They can easily appear frizzy or static if you are unlucky. However, these problems can be quite easy to eliminate.
Today we’re sharing our favourite tips and tricks with you on how to curl your hair to make it last all day! By the way, all these tips also work for hair extensions as well.
1. Get Your Curls To Stay: Cool Them Down
One of the most effective tricks on how to get your curls to stay is to let the curl cool down and set before letting it go. Split your hair into fairly equal sections and run the curling iron from the base to the tip. After each curl, pin the curl to your head with a hairpin. How does this work? Well, as you wrap your hair around the curling iron, heat is transferred onto the hair strands, which is what makes them change their shape. So once your pinned curl is cooled down, it will allow the cuticle to close and set in place, making the curl last for a much longer period of time. Let the hairspray sit in your hair for around 10-15 minutes.
2. Use the right hair products
Help your curls! Apply styling products to your hair, which will help hold the curls in longer. Depending what works with your hair, apply a tiny bit of mousse prior to drying your hair, or simply spray hairspray before and after curling. All this is after applying heat protectant, of course – always remember the heat protectant first!
- Using Rollers
Wash your hair then let it dry so that it is damp. It is best to put in the curlers when your hair is damp so that the curls last longer. Additionally, the hair will be easier to work with if it is damp. Comb your hair to remove any knots. Combing your hair can help straighten it out so that the rollers will be more effective.
Apply a curling enhancer before putting in the rollers. It is best to use a spray as a cream can leave white flakes behind in your hair. Let the spray sit in your damp, combed hair for around 3-5 minutes before putting in the rollers.
Put in the rollers. Divide your hair into equal 1-inch wide sections. Roll each of these sections into the roller so that your hair looks uniformly curly after the rollers are removed. Apply a few more sprays of hairspray after you have applied the curlers.
Do not use much more than three sprays since too much hairspray can be damaging to your hair and the environment. Remove the rollers in the morning to finish the process of curling your hair.
- Invest in good hot hair tools
For years, you may think that your hair is ‘stick straight’ and that ‘your curls will fall apart in 20 minutes anyway’. You will think that as long as you use cheap, drugstore brand curlers. Only when you switch to better quality, higher-end tools, will you realize that the problem isn’t in your hair – it’s in the iron! Yes, they may be more expensive, however, they damage your hair less, they heat up better (so you will apply heat for a shorter period of time), and good quality irons will last you a very long time.
