Is it possible to make your beautiful and flawless curls last all day? Here are 5 tips to help you.
1. Let Curls Cool Down
Cool curls down and set before letting it go is an effective way to get your curls to stay. Secure each fresh curl (still keeping the curl shape) with a clip or a bobby pin. Heat will be transferred onto the hair strands if you wrap hair around the curling iron. Therefore, the shape of hair will be changed. So, if you want to make your curls last longer, you can cool your pinned curl. Once it is cooled down, it will allow the cuticle to close and set in place.
2. Use right hair products
You can turn to some right hair products to help hold the curls in longer. You can apply a tiny bit of mousse prior to drying your hair, or simply spray hairspray before and after curling, depending what works with your hair.
Before applying hair products, you should do heat protectant.
Don’t hold the hairspray too close to your hair.
3. Invest in good hot hair tools
High quality hot hair tools damage your hair less, they heat up better, and good quality irons will last you a very long time.
4. Use the right barrel size
It is very important to choose the right barrel size. You can try using a 1″ or 1.5″ barrel, depending on your hair. With a right size, the curls not only look better but also last longer.
5. Trim hair
As we know, overly damaged hair (including split ends) doesn’t curl well. At this time, you can trim it.
