Curling Straight Hair

Do you have straight hair? Are you jealous of all those gorgeous curls on your friends and on celebrities? Curls are in right now. If you have straight hair, you are in luck because it's not that hard to get curls as well. It will take a little bit more work, but it is possible.

First, you need to wash and condition your hair. Make sure your hair is clean and well moisturized. A curling iron can be very drying to your hair, so you need to make sure your hair is as moisturized as possible. If you can, use a deep conditioning treatment beforehand for soft hair and the best results. Also, use a moisturizing shampoo. If you have oily hair, concentrate the moisture away from the scalp. With oily hair, it's the top that gets greasy often leaving the rest look dry.

Next, either let your hair air dry, or blow dry it. Add a defrizz serum if you would like before you blow dry. Blow dry it straight so that you end up with a clean slate. One good idea is to wash it the night before and then let it air dry overnight so that it's dry by the morning. This will also help minimize the heat and damage you put on your hair.

When your hair is ready, make sure you have all your tools: a comb or brush, a medium sized barrel curling iron, hair gel, hair spray. The size barrel you use will depend on your hair. If it's very straight and seems impossible to curl, use a smaller barrel to make sure it starts off curlier and then if it loses some of the curl, it still looks nice. You could use just gel or just hairspray, but it will hold better if you use both.

First, take a small one inch section of your hair. Comb or brush it straight. Take a small dab or hair gel and rub it between your two fingers. Then, run your gel covered fingers over the strand of hair, making sure not to get too much hair at the top. Shift your finger down to make sure the gel spreads evenly. Make sure you don't use too much so that it's crunchy. A little crunch at first is okay because you will scrunch it up later to get rid of the crunch. Use a strong hold gel and not a curling gel. Curling gel is made for naturally curly hair just to keep it in place. It is light and not strong enough to keep curls in naturally straight hair.

Next, take your curling iron, make sure it's hot, clip it around the top of your section of hair, and pull it down until it's just covering the end. Then, twist the barrel until you have the entire section of hair wrapped around the iron. Hold it for 3 to 5 seconds. Don't hold it too long because you will burn your hair. Quickly unravel your hair and release the curl. Right away, spray it with a sprits of hair spray. Don't touch it just yet. If it looks too curly for your liking, that's a good thing. Just leave it for now.

Continue around your head until you've curled all of your hair. When it is finished, turn your head over and spray hair spray all over then shake your head to loosen up the curls. Flip your hair back and arrange your curls how you want to them to look. Add some pins and clips if you want. If a curl is still too tight, tug on it gently until it's right. Gently scrunch any curls that are too crunchy. Finish it off with more hair spray and you are ready.
