11 Tips To Make Your Curls Last

1. BEDTIME BRAIDS
This time saving trick is the one I use most often. If you know you’re going to curl your hair the next day, sleep with it in a braid or two.The next morning you will wake up with instant texture— the perfect canvas to take a curling iron to.

2. CUT BACK ON THE CONDITIONER
We all know that unwashed hair holds a style better than freshly washed hair but did you know that cutting back on the hair conditioner can also help your hair hold a curl better? No? Neither did I! So go light on the conditioner and I recommend only doing the ends.



3. DRY SHAMPOO
On the days when you’re skipping the hair wash, a little dry shampoo will do wonders in adding some volume and getting rid of any excess oil. I prefer Batiste but there are heaps of other options.

4. TEXTURE YOUR HAIR
make sure to read the labels and find something that suits your hair type. This will help separate the curls  and define them.


5. PROTECTION

Before you bust out the curling iron, make sure to apply a heat protector to your hair so you don’t damage it. I really like Living Proof Restore Instant Protection.
6. HOT TOOLS
For years, I always thought the 19mm barrel curling iron was it for sexy, curly hair, but after spending time on YouTube, I finally know what size curling iron I should use. And guess what? After switching to a 32mm iron, my curls look better AND last longer!


7. TECHNIQUE

I don’t know about you, but I need to see something in action if I have any hope in heck of figuring out how to do it. YouTube curling hair tutorials, which are full of awesome tips and tricks to teach you how to curl your hair and make it last!


8. TOP TO BOTTOM
I always thought it made sense to clip my hair into different layers, and start curling it from the bottom up. That’s what I do when I straighten my hair, so it just seemed like the natural thing to do. Starting top to bottom is key! So much quicker if you start from the top and work your way down. Live and learn, I say!


9. POST IRON PIN
Roll each fresh curl around your finger, fasten it to your head with a bobby pin, and then, when all of your hair has been curled and pinned, spray with hair spray, leave for 10 minutes (usually I just do my makeup while the curls cool) and remove the curls one by one. The end result is always bouncier curls that last all day long.


10. HAIR SPRAY
Always lock in your look with hair spray. I prefer this new line from Loreal  Lock It Hairspray. And don’t forget to grab a small bottle for your purse – you’d be amazed at what a little spray can do to revitalize your curls at the end of the day!

11. HANDS OFF
Running your hands through your hair will pull out your curl and cause frizz! To separate mine after curling, I flip my hair over, shake the curls out, and lightly massage my scalp. what are your tips for bouncy lasting curls?
