5 Tips to Make Your Curls Last Longer
Today we’re sharing our favourite tips and tricks with you on how to curl your hair to make it last all day! By the way, all these tips also work for hair extensions as well. You can either watch our tutorial below, or keep scrolling down for all of our tips and tricks.
1. Get Your Curls To Stay: Cool Them Down
One of the most effective tricks on how to get your curls to stay is to let the curl cool down and set before letting it go.
Make your hairstyle an important part for the expression of your identity!
Take each fresh curl (still keeping the curl shape) and secure it with a clip or a bobby pin. How does this work? Well, as you wrap your hair around the curling iron, heat is transferred onto the hair strands, which is what makes them change their shape.
2. Use the right hair products
Help your curls! Apply styling products to your hair, which will help hold the curls in longer. Depending what works with your hair, apply a tiny bit of mousse prior to drying your hair, or simply spray hairspray before, during and after curling.
3. Invest in good hot hair tools
For years, you may think that your hair is ‘stick straight’ and that ‘your curls will fall apart in 20 minutes anyway. You will think that as long as you use cheap, drugstore brand curlers.
4. Use the right barrel size
Barrel size is actually pretty important. It’s easy to think that a bigger barrel is what will give you those sexy Victoria Secret Curls. We find, however, that most of the time, a smaller barrel will do the magic.
5. Your hair still doesn’t curl?
Well, my beautiful friend, this is a sign that your hair is screaming SOS. Overly damaged hair (including split ends) doesn’t curl well. Period. It’s time to give your hair some love and get a trim!
