To get the best kinds of curl for the best length of hair, you have to consider the following things.
Is your hair all one length? Layered? The more layers the more curl and shape. Long layers also apply. Do you have product already dried into your hair for hold? If you canít let it dry naturally, here are quick fixes to get curls on any length.
For short straight hair use 1-inch barrel curling iron, throughout your hair. Curling med pieces of hair making sure you are tucking in the ends so the curl does not flip out. After curling rub some wax or pomade on both your hands. Flip your hair over and rub your fingers through it for a loose curl. If you like the tight curl effort spray some firm hairspray until you are ready to show off your curls.
For medium to long hair it might take a bit of work, but you too can get the waves or curls you like. For un-layered straight hair, you can get a curl, but its going to be very flat on the top of your head and very heavy and curly at the bottom. Invest in some hot rollers at Wal-Mart; getting curls only takes 10 minutes in the hot rollers. Twenty minutes if you are brave and want it really curly. As you wrap the pieces of hair on the roller spray hairspray in a downward movement and lightly stroke the ends before rolling. You get a better-defined curl. Start rolling 1-inch sections from front to back, then do your sides and top. Leave them in 10 minutes and voila! Curls-a-la-Carte. To loosen the curls apply a small amount of BioSilk for a soft shiny finish.
For medium to long layered hair scrunch with Joicoís Ice Finisher the hardest hairspray there is out there, but combine it with a soft gel or mousse to give you a softer yet holding curl. Itís guaranteed to give you curls all day. Pin some of those pieces of hair up if you plan to make it a night-time event or hot date.
To get the frizz out of any curl use a small amount of BioSilk to any ends. Spray on a spray shine for a final finished look.
