Let’s face it: no one enjoys battling their curls for total control. If you don’t have natural curls, it’s hard to make them stay without using a whole can of hairspray. And some of us just aren’t hairspray people. Don’t fret though, we have the secrets to getting your curls to stay all day.
The key to the perfect all-day curls starts with prep work. Right after the shower, while hair is still wet, distribute BaByliss Miracurl Curl Prep Leave-In Cream evenly through hair. This cream is specially formulated with a polymer complex that provides hair with structure and non-crisp hold for beautiful, long lasting curls. This will help build on any existing texture you might already have. Special bonus, this cream is also thermally activated, so when you use your curling iron, hair is protected while the heat activates the cream in you curls.
Allow hair to air dry, while scrunching hair with your hands. If you’re pressed for time, use a diffuser on your blow dryer and scrunch while drying. For even more hold, put a small amount of Tigi Bed Head On The Rebound Curl Cream in the palm of your hand before scrunching hair – this recoil cream helps define curls and adds superior hold.
Once hair is dry, grab your curling iron to add definition and extra waves and curls. We love Paul Mitchell’s Express Ion Unclipped 3-in-1 Curling iron, with its interchangeable barrels. This gives you the opportunity to make curls of varying sizes. Curl away from your face with face framing sections. Change up the direction of the curls through the rest of your hair. This will not only look natural, but it will also help curls stay better.
When you’re done styling, make sure to spritz a shine spray on those beautiful curls (we like Rusk Designer Collection Thermal Shine Spray) and you’ll be ready to rock all-day, soft and natural looking curls.
