I know you are. I know you ALL are. It’s okay I’m here to help. You take that scorching hot iron and slide it to the crispy ends of your hair and roll it up. Then you take the iron out and let that curl fly. Soon enough your roots are straight and the curl is just a wave in the ends.
So here’s the deal. When you roll from your ends not the entire hair strand gets the right amount of heat. Then your ends get too much. By the time you roll up to the root the hair has to penetrate through the ends and the mid shaft to heat up the root. Then when you release the hot hair you let it hang and the curl starts to fall out because the curl wasn’t allowed to cool in the right shape.
Be forwarded. This may be tricky to get the hang of. Once you do though you’ll be impressed by how bouncy and full your curls will be.
First start with a section slightly smaller in thickness than the barrel of the iron you choose.
Clip the iron on the section by the root while holding onto the ends.
Slide the iron down slightly and begin to turn the iron. Keep a hold on the ends and follow them around while feeding them into the iron.
Continue leading the ends into the iron by opening and closing the iron while turning continuing the curl.
Once the ends are completely fed into the iron let it set for a few seconds. Open the iron and slide it out while keeping the curl in tact.
Clip the curl in place to cool.
Repeat this all over your whole head then mist with hairspray. Allow the pinned up curls to stay in until the entire head has cooled. The result will be a more bouncy and long lasting curl from root to ends.
Remember the barrel size will make a bigger or smaller curl.
A bigger barrel will leave more of a body wave.
And a smaller barrel will make a tight curl.
Once again these are tricky but you’ll get a much better result with a bit of practice.
