The Best Way to Curl Your Hair

To get the best curls for your hair length, you should to consider the following things.

Is your hair all in one length or be layered? Usually, it will takes more time to curl and shape the layers. Long layers also apply. Do you have any product to hold your dried hair? If you can't let it dry naturally, here are some quick fixes to get curls on any length.

For short straight hair use 1-inch barrel curling iron, throughout your hair. Curling med pieces of hair making sure you are tucking in the ends so the curl does not flip out. After curling rub some wax or pomade on both your hands. Flip your hair over and rub your fingers through it for a loose curl. If you like the tight curl effort spray some firm hairspray until you are ready to show off your curls.

For medium to long hair it might take a bit of work, but you too can get the waves or curls you like. For un-layered straight hair, you can get a curl, but its going to be very flat on the top of your head and very heavy and curly at the bottom. Invest in some hot rollers at Wal-Mart; getting curls only takes 10 minutes in the hot rollers. Twenty minutes if you are brave and want it really curly. As you wrap the pieces of hair on the roller spray hairspray in a downward movement and lightly stroke the ends before rolling. You get a better-defined curl. Start rolling 1-inch sections from front to back, then do your sides and top. Leave them in 10 minutes and voila! Curls-a-la-Carte. To loosen the curls apply a small amount of BioSilk for a soft shiny finish.

For medium to long layered hair scrunch with Joico's Ice Finisher the hardest hairspray there is out there, but combine it with a soft gel or mousse to give you a softer yet holding curl. It's guaranteed to give you curls all day. Pin some of those pieces of hair up if you plan to make it a night-time event or hot date.

To get the frizz out of any curl use a small amount of BioSilk to any ends. Spray on a spray shine for a final finished look.

yeah I have been unsuccessful with curls until I used the curling iron one day and twisted my hair into the curling iron and hold for 2-3 minutes and they come out very cute.

The Shielo Volume Hairspray is my favorite volumizing hair spray. I have very fine straight hair, and I've tried all sorts of products. With this, I spray all over my hair first. Then I can curl it with a curling iron(which is rare, my straight hair never wants to curl). Then I flip my head upside down and spray all over. My curls and volume last all day.

Hi, I have very naturally curly hair that takes curlers/curling irons very well, but then they fall flat after an hour or so.    Or else, in the case of hot rollers, sometimes gets so curly my long hair is a shoulder length afro.    I don't what to use.    If I use foam curlers on wet hair, then I only need about 4 and it looks like frizzy poodle curls.    If it do it on dry hair, it won't take at all.    I have tried mousse, curly hair products, etc.    I just want big bouncy curls and can't figure out how to do that.    Velcro only give me volumn, no curl.    What is the best hot rollers and curling iron?    My hair is almost 1/2 down my back with layers, the shortest just at my shoulders.    THANKS!

I have short, thick, naturally straight blonde hair and I have a CONAIR Hair Curler. I have just recently discovered if you count to '60' while you are curling your hair the curls will come out like ringlets when you release it from the curling iron. The only problem I have is getting it to stay in. I haven't tried anything to get it to stay in, but I'm willing to try something.
Any Suggestions?

if you want your hair curly pin it up on top of your head and let it down in smal sections to curl it. curl it round the curling iron then spray it with hair spray whiile your hairs wrapped round the iron. leave it there for about 5 seconds, unwrap the curl from the iron and spray again to make sure it stays :) x
