DIY – How to Make Your Curls Hold

6

Every girl wants her hair to look as good at the end of the night as it does when you step out of the salon.

And as a girl with stick-straight strands let me tell you… there’s nothing more frustrating than spending 45 minutes curling your tresses only to have your perfect waves fall flat before you’ve made it out the door.

So today I’m sharing a few secrets for flawless, lasting curls. Without further ado, here are a few useful tips I’ve come across…

Start with day-old hair.

Your hair’s natural oils give your hair texture and make your strands more mouldable. So if you plan on curling your hair, don’t wash it for a day or two. If your scalp feels too oily sans shampoo, sprinkle a little dry shampoo along the roots and leave the rest dirty.

Skip the deep conditioner.

Deep conditioning treatments have a tendency to weigh hair down and make it harder to style. So if you know you’ll be curling your hair, stick to a lightweight conditioner and save the more intense hydrating treatments for another day.

Pick the right products.

Many people make the mistake of piling on products after curling and using nothing before. But stiff, crunchy curls are not the goal here. So before you take a curling iron to your mane, start with a lightweight styling lotion to give your hair some texture. It’s also a good idea to use a heat protecting spray so you don’t fry your strands. Once you are done curling your whole head of hair, finish by misting your curls with a light hairspray. Use just enough hairspray to make your strands stay without feeling stiff.

Use the right tools.

Having the right tools makes all the difference. To begin, make sure you’ve selected an iron with the right size barrel. For hair that doesn’t hold a curl well, I recommend a ¾-inch barrel.

The curls will be tight without looking ringlet-y, and will loosen as the day goes on. If your hair holds a curl better than mine does, choose a 1-inch iron for instant beachy waves. Also, if your hair always falls flat, consider investing in a professional grade curling iron. For a long time I was trying to curl my hair with a drugstore brand, and it was only when I switched to a higher-end iron that I realized my hair could hold a curl.

Try the post-iron pin.

Once you release your hair from the iron, simply pin the curl to your head until it sets. Once your entire head is pinned, mist it with hairspray. Then, carefully unpin your curls and comb through them with your fingers.

Braid before bed.

This timesaving trick is the one I use most often. If you know you’re going to curl your hair the next day, sleep with it in a braid or two (depending on how thick your hair is). The next morning you will wake up with instant textured waves—the perfect canvas to take a curling iron to.
