So I decided to post two days in a row. I’m always looking for ways to help prolong my hair between washing it (it helps preserve my curls) and since I liked my hair enough today, I decided to curl it with a curling iron. It is always a good idea to protect your hair, whether you have naturally curly, wavy, or straight hair. So I suggest using some sort of heat protector spray and allowing that to dry before starting to curl your hair.
The products I used:
Step 1: Make sure your hair is free of tangles. If you have a lot of tangles, be very gentle with untangling your hair. Once your hair is untangled, separate a bottom layer and clip the rest of your hair up and out of the way. The bottom layer should only be the hair from the middle of your ears and down.
Step 2: Start curling. I find it’s easiest to work from the back to the front. And I will start with my curling iron upside down and twist UP towards my head instead of under. Take hair spray and spray the curls as you’re done curling that layer. (*repeat the same for every layer)
Step 3: Make sure to confine the part of your hair that’s already been curled before letting down another layer. I will then take the middle layer which will start right at my temple and down. Again, I’ll curl from the back to the front and gently comb out the hair if it’s still tangled. *
Step 4: this is the top layer and I do this layer a little differently. Instead of curling UP towards my head and I will put the curling iron on my hair right side up and curl UNDER towards my head. This helps create a smoother finish of the curls on the top layer while the bottom two layers provide more volume. *
Step 5: Once all of your hair is curled, spray your whole head with hair spray. Then gently flip your head over and carefully pull some of the curls apart. Don’t be rough with this part otherwise you will loose the shape of your curls.
then voila! You’re done!
