Do you remember your moms hair curlers? Come on, things have changed a bit since then. Curling irons are usually basically one size fits all, however that is no longer the case.
Today, you will find both heated and unheated. You will find those that are magnetic, velcro or foam based. They also vary in length and width.
There are some tips and tricks to use and how to use them, so let’s get down to business.
• The wider the curling iron or roller, the fuller and smoother the final result will be.
• A thinner curling iron or roller will give a slightly tight, spiral-shaped result.
• For a longer-lasting result, when using those that don’t heat up, try putting them on before taking a shower. The steam from the shower will help the curls last twice as long.
• Avoid winding your hair too tight. Doing so can cause future hair loss and I don’t know about you, but that’s not something I want to mess with.
• Rollers or magnetic rollers are used on wet hair. They will add a nice soft curl with the volume you are looking for Wireless Hair Curler.
• Velcro rollers or rollers are designed to give soft, full curls. The beauty of velcro curls is that they can be used on both wet and dry hair.
• Short, fine or brittle hair should consider using velcro or rollers, as they do not need to be held in place. Longer and thicker hair clips are needed.
• Foam hair curlers or rollers are designed to be used when hair is dry. They are created for fragile hair as they are made of foam and sleeping on them is not a problem.
• To make sure your hair is thicker, use a strength foam the morning (or the day) before you plan to apply rollers or rollers.
• For naturally curly hair, it is best to apply a smoothing serum to brush the curls; which will make winding your hair much easier.
• Take plenty of time and let the curlers set. Twenty to thirty minutes is normal.
• Carefully unroll the curlers or rollers. Be patient and don’t rush or you could end up with a tangled hair mess.
• After removing all the rollers, gently brush through the curls to create a large, smooth, full wave.
