Whether you have enviable straight hair or versatile wavy locks, you must have curled your tresses at least once in your life. Wondering how you can make your curls stay intact all day long? Or how you can stop your styled curls from flattening out? Well, here are a few tips:
1/ Always Curl Your Hair on 2nd Day Post Shampoo
Freshly shampooed hair is too silky to hold a curl. One day post shampoo, i.e., on second hair day, your tresses have good texture and can hold a curl better. So, if you are planning to curl your hair, avoid washing your lovely locks for two or three days or try out a curly hairstyle on 2nd or even 3rd day post shampoo. If your hair looks too oily, you can always spritz some dry shampoo on the roots to make it look clean and fresh.
2/ Use a Good Quality Curling Mousse
If you want your straight or wavy hair to hold curls, you must work in some good quality curling mousse through your tresses before styling your hair. The product will lend high definition to your curls without building too much weight or greasiness and will make your curly hairstyle hold longer.
3/ Always Make Tight Curls that Will Hold Longer Than Loose Ones
No trick here! Small, tight curls are less prone to flattening out as compared to big, loose ones. So, while styling your hair, choose a small-barreled curling iron and make beautiful curls. Even if they do flatten out a bit, they will still lend the appearance of curly hair, whereas big curls will fizzle out into loose waves.
4/ Use a Generous Amount of Hairspray to Set Your Curly Hairstyle
To set your curls and make your hairstyle look salon-styled all day long, it is imperative to spritz a generous amount of bold control hairspray all over your tresses. The product will lock your curls for longer wear and help to keep your hairstyle intact throughout the day!
5/ Stop Fiddling with Your Hair
Last but not the least, if you want your curls to stay intact, you must not fiddle with your hair. Don't run your fingers through your tresses or flip your lovely locks after you've set your hair. Doing this will break your curls and ruin your hairstyle.
