If you follow me on Instagram you already know I just mastered how to curl my hair and I’m getting ready to sail away for my friend’s bachelorette party, so I’m going to be quick and share a few tips on how I finally figured out how to get my hair to hold a curl!
I know my hair can curl, because many hairstylist have been able to curl my hair beautifully. The struggle has been achieving that look on my own! After reading this post from The Every Girl I was determined to try again. The tips from The Every Girl were so helpful because it broke it down based on length of hair and desired look.
A few things I did to achieve this look with freshly washed hair:
- I let my hair air dry till it was 90% dry
- Then I hit it with a blow dryer to make sure it was completely dry
- Since I had a few errands to run, I pulled it back in a low braid
- Once I got back, I curled my hair based on the tips from The Every Girls post, then finished it with this hair spray and this silky dirt cream (a very little goes a long way with Silky Dirt)
I also finally realized the best way to achieve the look I was going for was by brushing out my curls. I had continuously read that you should, but after struggling to actually get the curls, I was terrified to follow through on that last step – eek! Once I finally brushed them out, I was able to truly achieve my goal with these curls.
Do you have any helpful tips on how to curl your hair? I’d love to know how you achieve luscious curls!
