Also, Things to keep in mind before getting into the Wormhole of Styling
Practice with your Curling Iron (OFF position, That it)
Yup, I know a silly and fun thing to do. But it will allow you to practice these curling hair techniques without burning yourself. After you feel confident enough to turn on the heat and curl your hair; go ahead.
Use a Heat Protectant Spray
You know right, styling your hair always comes with a risk of heat damage. Heat doesn’t just dry hair out, It can destroy the integrity of the inner structure of the hair/ hair follicles, and even mess up with the beautiful color that you invested in at the salon. Working with heat protection is vital to the health of your hair.
Keep it 392° F
That is the maximum temperature you can be wise enough to keep for the sake of your hair color. Too much heat can dull and fade your hair color. So turn your irons down and be more deliberate with your speed (slowing down) to create better curls with less damage to your hair.
Step by Step Guide as to How to Curl Your Hair at Home
Bobby Pin Curling Technique
It is one of the most underrated techniques, but it’s as efficient as any other curling method. yup, even if you don’t own a curling iron or straightener, you can still get to flex your curls. All you need are a few bobby pins to get started.
Step 1: Start by dividing your hair into two sections and then dividing it further into smaller sections – one inch to an inch and a half is ideal.
Step 2: Start at the top, take the first small section, and start rolling from the ends towards the roots to form a coil, secure it using a bobby pin, once you reach the roots.
Step 3: Proceed towards the back taking one section at a time, rolling and securing with a bobby pin, until the entire hair is pinned up.
Step 4: Now let the hair stay as-is for a few hours or tie a silk scarf around it and sleep on it overnight. Now pull out the clips one after the other, use your fingers to smooth out the curls. Give the curls a thorough shake at the root to add volume.
Sock Curl Technique
Socks…yes!! You can use socks in your hair for styling. oh my gosh! this technique trended on TikTok and got a lot of support. based on the views we can say it is effective and “too homemade”.
Step 1: Start with clean, towel-dried hair. This technique works best on damp hair. If your hair is dry, spray some water to make It damp.
Step 2: Divide the hair into four or more sections depending on the thickness and volume of your hair, remember you will need one sock for each section, so keep it handy. The longer the sock the better.
Step 3: Hold the sock at the top of the section, twist and twirl your hair around it. Repeat on all the sections and secure the end with a hair tie, make sure it is tight enough to stay throughout the night. and wake up with smooth gorgeous curls.
The S Wave
Now, here is where the flat iron comes into use. this style is quick and easy to learn. your straightener is a versatile object, it can also be used for curling your hair; it’s called the S wave curling technique.
Step 1: Start by spraying some heat protection spray all over your hair, to protect your precious mane from heat damage
Step 2: Now hold a section of hair between your thumb and index finger, place the straightening iron just above the pinch and start tucking the hair into it. The section will appear like an S wave held in between the straightener.
Step 3: Slowly and carefully, open and close the straightener gently for a few seconds. be careful with heat handling. and turn on and turn off according to your convenience
Step 4: Repeat all over, while focusing on creating an S pattern. also, run your fingers through the lengths once to get beautiful, textured waves. yup, salon-style!
Headband Curling Technique
Another overnight curling technique that requires absolutely no muscle stretching. Instead of spending hours in front of the mirror, struggling with your hair, a flawless flirty curly look can be achieved with the help of headbands.
Step 1: Start with damping your hair, then place a stretchy headband on the top of your head, just around the hairline as usual. Do not pull your hair through it.
Step 3: Take a small section of hair and loop the hair over and under the headband. In other words, do the spiral work. Repeat this looping process on all the other sections of hair, work from the front towards the back.
Step 5: Secure any loose sections with bobby pins and go to bed. Wake up in the morning and remove the headband to get beautiful, wavy hair.
