How To Curl Your Hair With A StraightenerMethods
Ideal is to have a hair straightener that is very narrow (approx. 3 centimeters) in order to be able to get closer to the hair roots.
Also, the best acquisition is a ceramic straightener because it will heat better than a normal one and so you will only have to use it for one time on the strands instead of several times(with a normal one) to do the same job.
Here are the 5 steps for you to follow to get your hair curly with a hair straightener :
The operation starts on a freshly washed hair, yet wet. Before drying your hair, apply a lotion that defines and gives glow for a curly hair. Blow-dry it until the lotion is almost dry and has entered in the hair .
Divide your hair into five sections: one in front and the rest sections all around the head . The more you split it in fewer sections, the easier the braiding action will be. Then rotate each section of hair into a round shape. You can also use rollers, but put them together with paper clips.
Keep your hair like that either up all night or several hours, then release it and shake it up a bit. You will see it is already slightly curly.
For loops: Divide your hair into several sections and begin the operation of hair curling by gently catching with the straightener from base of hair strand close to scalp.
Once that you’ve got strand with the hair straightener, you must rotate the strand along the straightener. During this operation remove little by little the plate until it reaches the end of the strand.
The more slowly you remove the straightener from the strand, the more curled your hair will get . You can apply a protective spray to create a protective barrier for the hair strand against the heat from the straightener
The advantage of curling your hair with a straightener instead of curling it with a curling iron is that you can get several types of curls from the casual ones, almost straight, to the ones that are very curved and full of volume. The products that you use when you curl your hair will also make the difference, the technique is and will always be the same.
