I am a big believer in taking good care of my hair and keeping it nice, healthy and shiny.
I am also (as it would seem) a big believer in bleaching my once healthy shiny silky hair within an inch of it’s life.
Cause I wanted to be blonde.
And I figured I could nurse it back to health eventually (working on that, I’ll keep you posted)
But in the meantime… I’m just gonna fake it.
1. 1 1/2″ Hot Tools Curling Iron (BTW I know I didn’t add this to the list but I had to tell you, since I’ve been using the Malibu hard water elixir I have been amazed with how well my hair holds curl! Bouncy, light fresh and not at all weighed down with grime, post about that HERE)
2. Awesome hair oil
3. Fab heat protected
4. Fine tooth comb
First work oil into your hair starting at the ends and working up to about mid shaft. I use it in dime size amounts until my hair no longer feels dry at the ends. A little at a time keeps you from getting too much in one area. Next I section my hair in two and pull op the top half.
Now time to begin the stylin’
1. Take 1 1/2″ sections and spray with heat protectant then comb through section
2. Take the iron and clam the hair near the root ( I run it through the root a couple times to warm it up) then clamp down and slide through while curling away from your face until you get to the end of the strand.
3. Lightly twirl the strand and let it cool
Repeat the process on the rest of the hair. I rotate the curl going away from my face and toward my face each time, making sure the pieces that frame my face are all away)
Once your hair is COMPLETELY COOL shake it out and break up the curls.
This technique makes your hair look lustrous and healthy by smoothing the cuticle, adding wave/body and quenching it’s thirst.
I have a video where I do a similar technique in case the pictorial isn’t giving you enough info. Click HERE to see that:)
I hope this helps some of you even if you hair isn’t damaged, it’s one of my favorite styles and it looks pretty on hair of any length!
For long hair though, I would recommend a smaller iron (like 1″ or 1 1/4″) since your hair has more weight and might pull on your curl.
