Every girl loves curls but not all of us know how to create them. Loose, voluminous, kinky, deep, water, coily curls and so on; there are so many types of curly hairstyles that are suitable either for your next date dinner, wedding or some other formal or usual event. They are easy to make and help you achieve glamorous, elegant or laid back style.
We all love them, but here’s the thing: curling irons can make some serious long-term damage to your hair because of the heat. Even if you use a professional curling iron and you have a lot of experience, if you use it often you are making significant hair damage, which can take years for recovery. If you choose to use the curling iron you need to avoid the following mistakes:
• Your hair needs to be completely dry before you start.
• You need to use a heat protector.
• Be careful in which direction you are curling.
• Never take more than 10 seconds per wisp of hair.
• After 10 seconds release the wisp from the iron into your hand or pin it with a clip and let it cool a little bit. Cooling your curl will give you tighter curls and will keep the shape longer.
If you don’t want to damage your hair there are some even better ways to make perfect wavy hairstyles with less effort and without heat. Today we will show you 5 interesting ways to curl your hair without using a hairdryer or curling iron. Each of them are really easy to do and you will need some basic stuff that you already have at home. Let’s check them out!
