The drip of curly hair is, after all, humidity. Many of you must have experienced that your curled hair came off the moment you went outside. We will show you how to make your curly hair last longer.
Six key points to keep your hair curly
- Dry hair from the roots with a hair dryer and blow dry.
Half-dried or wet hair tends to pull out curls and makes it difficult to create curls. Dry your hair thoroughly with a hair dryer before curling, which will make it easier to get the curls in place and make them last longer.
People who don’t wash their hair in the morning also wake up with their hair flat, so lightly dry the entire hair with a hair dryer and fluff it up from the roots. Blow-dry your hair with a brush to remove any kinks and waviness, and then curl your hair.
- Use a styling product for curly hair
Use a styling product for curly hair, such as a styling water, before curling to make curls last longer. It is also recommended to use a styling product that protects the hair from the heat of the iron.
However, after using styling products, be sure to dry your hair thoroughly before curling, or it will be difficult to get curls to stay in place.
- Curl hair clearly at high temperatures.
These days, many irons have variable temperature settings. If you usually curl your hair at a low temperature, it is a good idea to set it to a slightly higher temperature on humid days to create clear curls in a short time. The key is to give the curls a firmer curl than usual.
However, because of the high temperature, be careful how long you curl your hair; 5 to 10 seconds is sufficient.
- Do not unwind the hair until it cools down.
After curling hair with heat, the hair will shape-memorize when it cools down. If you try to unravel curls immediately after curling, there is a possibility that the curls will fall out.
Allow the curls to cool thoroughly before unraveling them with your hands.
- Lightly rub in an oil-based styling product.
Oil-based styling products tend to be resistant to humidity. For long hair, take about the same amount as a pearl and spread it firmly on both hands, then apply it to the curls as if you were rubbing it into the curls from below.
Be careful not to apply too much, as the weight of the product will cause the curls to fall out.
- Do not apply too much hairspray.
Lightly spray hairspray all over the hair, while zigzagging the spray from the top to the left and right. As with styling products, after spraying, rub in the product as if lifting it from the bottom to the top.
Although it is easy to do, it is counterproductive to try to firm the curls with the spray! The weight of the spray will cause the curls to fall out, so be aware of the importance of “lightly distributing” the spray throughout the hair.
Keep your style in the morning and have a refreshing day!
Style collapse is easy to occur during the summer and rainy season. Keep the above points in mind and feel good all day long!
