Getting gorgeous curls
There are many different ways to get beautiful curls such as perms, hot rollers or a curling iron. Two of my personal favorites that I have the best luck with, when it comes to long thick hair is using a round brush/blow dryer method, or by using perm rods or even the plastic or flexible rollers you can find at any beauty supply store, or even at places like CVS, Walgreens, Wal-Mart and even Dollar Tree/99 cent stores.
When using a round brush and blow dryer, always start out with your hair damp. Not soaking wet! Comb hair through to take out any tangles. Separate your hair into manageable sections. Then take each section, wrap around the brush and blow dry. If you have a very high blow dryer be careful as not to get too close to your hair. Also do not wrap too tight, this will not only cause the air not to flow all the way through to set the curl, but you can also get your hair tangled as well. Once you have created all your curls, turn your dryer on a cool mode/low heat and run gently through the hair, while also spritzing with a quality holding spray.
If the round brush/blow dryer method isn’t for you, or you want a longer lasting curl. Start out with a sufficient amount of rollers or rods for your hair. Use small or large depending on how big of a curl you want. Now you can start doing this 2 different times. The day of, or the night before. If you opt for doing this the day you need it, you will need a blow dryer to help set the curls faster. If you have the time and patience, and can start the night before, using a blow dryer most likely will not be necessary.
The day of – I would give at least 4 hours time for the curls to set and you to run the blow dryer over all the curls every 30 minutes for the first 2-3 hours and every 15 minutes the last 1-2 hours. Make sure you have no more damp sections. After you are finished, loosely unroll the curls. DO NOT BRUSH. Brushing will make it very frizzy! To style use your fingers and a quality holding spray.
The night before – wrap damp hair the night before in rollers of your choice/size of your choice. I sometimes use a light moose before rolling or a light spray after. let set over night. Once you get closer to the time you need to take the rollers out. Check and make sure all curls are completely dry. If not run a blow dryer over the curls and let cool.Once all curls are dry you can begin unraveling each curl, unravel loosely and DO NOT BRUSH. Style, and finish with a quality holding spray.
