Want perfect hair for longer? Here’s 4 steps to fabulous…
We have all experienced the pain of perfecting your hair to a red carpet worthy style only to find it fall flat as you step out of the door. No matter what type of curl you’re going for, following our 4 steps to success below will ensure those beautiful curls last all day long!
Keep your cool
Hair state. If you don’t change it- it will not work! Whether that’s from wet to dry or hot to cold your hair needs to change it’s state if it’s not naturally curled to perfection. Whilst wet to dry curling is far more kind to your hair, it’s very time consuming and if not perfected, can also provide some overly dramatic results- which you end up correcting with heat anyway! All you need to do is make sure when you’ve curled a section of hair with a roller or with tools you let it cool. The heat transferred to that hair section from the styling is what will cause the strand to change shape. Letting the hair cool whilst remaining in this shape will help your hair to set in place, staying much curlier for longer. Simply hold the coiled/curled hair in place and pin to the roller or head using grips and pins. Once your hair is fulled cooled you can release those beautiful curls!
Product? What product?
Your curls need some help along the way, so lend them a helping hand by applying some of the right products. Remember when using any heat tools it’s so important to use a good heat protector- especially on hair extensions and wigs! They don’t receive the daily dose of essential oils from the scalp like your natural hair so they need all the protection from the damage they can get! After a good spritz of heat protection, a light mousse when wet or a light spray of hair spray will help to hold for longer. The rule is the straighter your hair pre curling – the stronger hold you will need from your product.
The right tools for the job
The higher the quality the better the curl. Good quality tongs and rollers will not only last for a long time but will ensure your curls do too. Buy cheap – Buy twice, thrice etc etc. Investing in a good quality tool will ensure the damage to your hair when styling is lessened by curling quicker and more effectively. You will quickly realise even the straightest hair beauties can achieve that full bouncy style. The size of the barrel is also key to achieving those bouncy, beautiful curls. Some people opt for the largest barrel or roller in an attempt to acheive super model curls but this look is best achieved with a 1” – 1.5” barrel, cooling the curls and then brushing out- TA DA!
Condition is key
Even the best tools and prep won’t be able to stand against damaged hair. If you’re still finding it difficult to curl and you’ve followed all the steps- your hair needs some TLC. Ensure your ends are trimmed and tidy, free of those troublesome split ends. Applying heat in it’s current fragile state won’t help the matter, it will worsen it. Ensure you hair isn’t too heavy with regular trims and thinning and make sure behind the scenes you are giving it the love it deserves! That way when you’ve brought it back to life the curls will last all day!
