Preparing Your Hair
Before you begin curling your hair, it is important to make sure your hair is properly prepped. Start by washing and conditioning your hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. This will help to ensure that your curls stay defined and don’t become frizzy. Once you’ve washed and conditioned your hair, apply a heat protectant spray to help protect your hair from the heat of the curling iron.
Choosing the Right Curling Iron
When it comes to curling your hair, the type of curling iron you use is just as important as the technique. Choose a curling iron with a barrel size that is appropriate for the type of curls you want to create. For tight, defined curls, opt for a smaller barrel size. For loose, beachy waves, choose a larger barrel size.
Creating the Perfect Curls
Once you’ve chosen the right curling iron, it’s time to start curling. Start by sectioning off your hair into small sections. Take one section of hair and wrap it around the barrel of the curling iron. Hold the curling iron in place for a few seconds before releasing the curl. Repeat this process until all of your hair is curled.
Once you’ve finished curling your hair, it’s time to add the finishing touches. To help keep your curls defined, apply a light-hold hairspray to your hair. This will help to keep your curls in place and prevent them from becoming frizzy. You can also use a light-hold styling cream to help keep your curls looking smooth and shiny.
