Sometimes it seems like no matter what you try, your hair just doesn’t want to hold curls. Even though it may seem like you are the only one whose hair can’t keep the curls for longer than five minutes, many women struggle with this. Luckily, we are here to help you with some tips on how to make your curls stay intact.
Make Sure You Are Using Products
Your hair needs a helping hand to maintain the hairstyle. Therefore, invest in some hair products. If you are using hot tools to curl your hair, always make sure you are protecting your hair with some heat protectant. Also, pick a mousse or hairspray that will help your curls to stay in place.
Help Your Curls to Cool Down
Some experiments show that the curls form while the hair cools down. After you curl a piece of your hair with a wand or a flatiron, help it cool down correctly by pinning the section of hair up. Leave it until it has completely cooled down. Alternatively, you can use your hand to hold the curl in place while it cools down.
Make Sure You Have the Right Haircut
If your hair is too long or thick, your hair will struggle to keep the curls in place. The longer the hair is, the heavier it will be, and it will be hard for the coils not to drop. You can adjust your haircut by trimming your hair. Especially in the front, as this is where you want your curls to look the best. Alternatively, if you don’t feel like cutting your hair, you can try to curl your hair with some methods that don’t involve hot tools and leave it overnight.
Apply Tension When Curling Your Hair with A Wand
Take small sections of your hair and set your curling wand to 300 degrees. Once it heats, you want to make sure you apply enough tension when wrapping the hair for the heat to distribute evenly. Pull the wand away from your face to create tension.
