Curly hair can often be a lovely look that completely transforms your appearance. If you’re one of the many people with naturally straight hair, then some gorgeous curls are perfect for special occasions. I find that a lot of women struggle to achieve the perfectly curled look, so here’s my advice to help you out.
Wash & Dry Your Hair
First thing’s first, your hair needs to be clean and grease-free when you curl it. Secondly, it must also be dry. So, it makes sense to give your hair a quick wash & dry before you whip out your wand. You can pretty much use any shampoo or conditioner you like, it’s a simple case of personal preference. However, I do have one top tip; use a blow dry lotion. Why? Well, I mentioned in this post here http://www.missirosesviews.com/how-to-give-your-fine-hair-a-boost-beautytips/ that these lotions are great for adding volume and bounce to your hair. Not only that, but they work to prevent heat damage, which will come in handy when using a hot curling wand. Protect your hair, give that extra boost, and you’ll be ready for gorgeous curls.
Don’t Set The Temperature Too High On Your Wand
A curling wand is probably the best tool you can use for curling your hair. Some people try and use a straightening iron, but I find it’s just overly complicated. The key with a wand is to keep the temperature at a low setting. Put it up too high, and you’ll end up damaging your previous hair. As it shows here https://therighthairstyles.com/best-curling-iron-wand-reviews/, many of the best curling wands come with different heat settings. You want to buy one that lets you manually set the right temperature, rather than one that just automatically heats up to the hottest temp possible. My tip is to start at a low temperature and work your way up until you reach a point where your hair starts to curl effectively and stay in place. Don’t go any higher than this, or you will damage your curls!
Get Rid Of All Knots
One thing that holds a lot of people back is the fact their hair is a tangled mess. We’ve all been there; you’re rushing to get ready in the morning, your hair is full of knots, but you want to curl your hair! So, you give it a go, and it just doesn’t work. At the risk of sounding patronizing, well, duh, it’s obviously not going to work! You need to spend time getting all of the knots out of your hair, so it’s nice and smooth. There are literally loads of tips out there and guides like this one https://www.madison-reed.com/blog/how-to-detangle-your-hair-the-right-way that can help you do this. Once your hair is detangled, you have the perfect base to start curling.
Right, now you should be in a much better position to achieve perfect curly hair. Follow this mini guide, and you’ll get those gorgeous curls every time, without fail.
