Have you ever had hair that you thought you had curled well, but by night it is all gone? Is it because you are not using styling products before and after curling your hair with an iron? We will review the basic tips for curling hair and teach you how to keep your hair curled well into the night!
Scales! Styling products before ironing
You probably know to use a spray after curling your hair, but did you know that applying a styling product before curling will actually make your curls last longer? This is not mentioned in any of the sprays that I have seen, but I hear that people with good curly hair are already practicing this. The correct order is to spray on wet hair after towel drying, dry with a hair dryer, and curl with an iron. Since the dryer and the iron will continue to put strain on the hair, choose a styling product that will prevent heat damage.
Don’t go through the trouble of blocking
After drying your hair thoroughly, let’s start curling it…but wait a minute! Have you blocked your hair properly? Failure to do so will result in a half-finished look. If you don’t separate your hair properly, you won’t be able to curl it properly. This may look difficult at first glance, but it is not difficult at all. By separating the hair, it will be easier to get the hair bundles and curl them.
How to use an iron to keep your beauty
Take a bunch of hair from either side of the collar and start curling it a little at a time. After taking a bunch of hair, glide the iron from the root to the tip of the hair to warm it up. By making the entire bundle at a uniform temperature, it will be easier to curl the hair when curling. Be careful about the amount of hair you take out for one bouquet. If you take too much, the heat will not be evenly distributed and there will be areas that will not curl. Change the amount of one bundle according to the thickness of the iron. For example, if the diameter of the iron is 30 cm, take a bundle of hair about 3 cm wide.
Cold air → spray to finish curling!
If you unwind the curls immediately after curling them with an iron, the curls will collapse. After curling the hair neatly, first place the hair bundle on the palm of your hand and wait for the heat to cool down. The hair is fixed in place when it cools, so the key is not to change the shape of the hair until it cools. Once the hair has cooled completely, it can be unraveled, but if you want to increase the holding power, it is better not to unravel the hair. Spray from the inside to finish off the look for better hold.
Double use of styling products will definitely make your curls last longer and keep them looking beautiful until the end of the night! Please also refer to the basic steps for curly hair.
