"6 Secrets For Making Your Curls Hold" By LC

  • Start with day-old hair.

    Your hair’s natural oils give your hair texture and make your strands more moldable. So if you plan on curling your hair, don’t wash it for a day or two. If your scalp feels too oily sans shampoo, sprinkle a little dry shampoo along the roots and leave the rest dirty.

  • Skip the deep conditioner.

    Deep conditioning treatments have a tendency to weigh hair down and make it harder to style. So if you know you’ll be curling your hair, stick to a lightweight conditioner and save the more intense hydrating treatments for another day.

  • Pick the right products.

    Many people make the mistake of piling on products after curling and using nothing before. But stiff, crunchy curls are not the goal here. So before you take a curling iron to your mane, start with a lightweight styling lotion to give your hair some texture...

  • It’s also a good idea to use a heat-protecting product so you don’t fry your strands. Once you are done curling your whole head of hair, finish by misting your curls with a light hairspray.

  • Use the right tools.

    Having the right tools makes all the difference. To begin, make sure you’ve selected an iron with the right size barrel. For hair that doesn’t hold a curl well, I recommend a ¾-inch barrel. The curls will be tight without looking ringlet-y, and will loosen as the day goes on.

  • Try the post-iron pin.

    Once you release your hair from the iron, simply pin the curl to your head until it sets. Once your entire head is pinned, mist it with hairspray. Then, carefully unpin your curls and comb through them with your fingers.

  • Braid before bed.

    If you know you’re going to curl your hair the next day, sleep with it in a braid or two (depending on how thick your hair is). The next morning you will wake up with instant textured waves the perfect canvas to take a curling iron.
