After posting my Bella Swan Hair tutorial I got a large response from users asking me if I had any tips or tricks in curling hard to curl hair? I was actually quite happy to get such a response because I honestly thought I was the only one who had such troubles with my hair. I use to scan youtube searching for videos on 'how to curl hard to curl hair' but the only vid's I found were by users with normal hair who only need 4 second to curl each section. Well it sure as hell doesn't take 4 second to curl my hair, more like 60 seconds! hahahahaha. Here are a few tips I have learnt over the years either through others or in my own personal experience. I also posted these on the description box for the video.
Don't curl your hair on the same day that you wash your hair, the dirtier the hair the easier it will curl
Leave your curls/curlers in as long as you can, like all day if you can. I only took mine out early because it was getting dark and I wanted good lighting for thevideo
Use a small curling iron like the second one I used in the video. The smaller ones create tighter curls and don't fall out as fast as the big ones.
You must use some sort of curling product or hair stray otherwise they will certainly fall out
Once you hair is styled try your best to not touch your hair as much
Don't use any other hot tool on your hair in the same day e.g hair straightener, hair dryer.
If these tips don't work braid/plat your hair in small section all around your head the night before. Take them out right before you start curling your hair, for some reason this makes my hair a lot more easier to curl.
Now I know there are people out there that would kill to have super straight hair like mine and I do feel for you because about 7 years ago I got a perm and it was the worst mistake of my hair life. There is a lot of effort in maintaining curls and I'm quite lazy when it comes to my hair so even though I hate how hard it is to curl it I wouldn't trade it for curls. On second thought maybe just on the days when I want to use a curling iron hahahaha
Love use all
