If you're like me, you like wearing your hair in styles that are easy, last long and that's for all occasions. If this description fits you then I know the perfect hairstyle for you. Yes, it's time you learn the right way to put some lustrous curls in your hair that's perfect for work, a date with your special someone or even just a night at the movies with your girls.
The first step in creating curls that not only look nice but last long is to thoroughly clean your hair. Shampoo your hair and towel dry. Use a dime size of your favorite hair moisturizer and work it through the lengths of your hair. This eliminates any fizz and gives your hair some moisture.
Next you can detangle your hair by blow drying it and using a round brush to straighten your strands. Don't set your dry on the highest setting. Your hair doesn't have to be bone straight because we want to leave some texture to it, that way it will curl better.
Once your hair is dry you can take some rollers (Velcro rollers are the best) and roll your hair up. Depending on the size you want your curls to be, you can use small, medium sized or large rollers. After rolling your hair up, you should sit under an head dryer, if you don't have one the job can be done with an hand blow dryer.
When your hair is set, carefully remove the rollers from your hair. Spray your hair with an very light holding spray. A lot of holding spray can damage your hair. Now, take a small to medium sized curling barrel and curl the hair half way below the roots.
Now all you have to do is separate your curls to your liking. For high volume you can should turn your head downward and softly separate curls by back combing your hair. You can also use a curling barrel to fix certain curls to your liking.
