Why Curly Hair is Awesome
First things first: curly hair is awesome. It can be fun, flirty, and classy all at the same time. Not to mention, it’s a great way to add volume to your hair. If you got a thin or fine hair, then curly hair can be a game-changer.
Moreover, many people find curly hair to be very flattering. It can help accentuate your features in a way that straight hair simply can’t. And, if you have the right cut, curly hair can also help to make your face look slimmer.
Types of Hair Curlers
There are many kinds of hair curlers on the market, making it difficult to know which one to buy. Here is a breakdown of the most popular types of curlers:
- Spring curlers: These curlers have a small spring inside them that helps to hold your hair in place. They are simple to use and give you a lot of control over the amount of curl you want. However, they can be more difficult to remove from your hair.
- Clip curlers: These curlers have clips that help hold your hair in place. They are easy to use and give you much control over the amount of curl you want. However, they can be more difficult to remove from your hair.
- Magnetic curlers: These curlers use magnets to hold your hair in place. They are very easy to use and give you a lot of control over the amount of curl you want. However, they can be more difficult to remove from your hair.
How to Use a Hair Curler
Now that you know the different types of curlers available let’s move on to how to actually use them! Here is a step-by-step guide on how to curl your hair using a spring curler:
1. Start With Clean, Dry Hair
The first step is to start with clean, dry hair. If your hair is dirty or oily, the curlers will not stay in as well. Similarly, the curls will not hold if your hair is damp. It also avoids damaging your hair since heated styling tools can be tough on your locks.
2. Section Your Hair
Next, you will want to section your hair. It will make it easier to curl and will help the curls last longer. You can either use a comb or your fingers to section your hair. Start by parting your hair in the middle and then create two sections.
3. Wrap Your Hair Around the Curler
Now it’s time to start curling! Take a small section of hair and wrap it around the curler, beginning at the root. Be sure to wrap the hair around the curler to get a nice, tight curl.
4. Hold the Curler in Place
Once you have wrapped your hair around the curler, you need to hold it in place. You can either use your hand or clips to keep the curler in place. If you use your hand, wrap your fingers around the curler, not the hair itself. It will help to avoid tangles.
5. Remove the Curler
After you have held the curler in place for a few seconds, you can remove it from your hair. Gently unwrap the hair from the curler and let it fall. You can then move on to the next section of hair.
Repeat steps 3-5 until you have curled all of your hair. Once you are finished, you can use your fingers to style the curls or use a brush to create a more natural look.
7. Finish With a Hairspray
Once you have curled all of your hair, finish with a light layer of hairspray. It will help to hold the curls in place. But remember this is optional, and you can always skip this step if you prefer.
So there you have it! Now you know how to use a hair curler to get beautiful, bouncy curls. Just remember to start with clean, dry hair, and be sure to use a heat protectant before you start curling. Also, take your time and be careful not to damage your hair. And lastly, have fun experimenting with different styles!
