Hey friends! I just wanted to quickly show you how I’ve been curling my hair lately. As usual, I try to do it in the quickest and most efficient way possible…..because who likes to spend too much time getting ready? I know I don’t!
I’ve found that if you have short to mid length hair, using a curling iron that is an inch and a quarter works really well. If you use too big of a curling iron, you actually don’t get the bend that you want in your hair. My top favorite brands for curling irons are Hot Tools, Babyliss Pro, and GHD. I recommend any of those.
In this video I had already let my hair air dry with Kerastase Nectar Thermique (which is my all time favorite thermal protectant) before curling. Because I have such straight and soft hair naturally, I am always trying to come up with ways to give it more texture. I tend not to blow-dry my hair unless it’s a necessity because if I do, my hair almost gets too smooth. I like the bit of bend and imperfection I get from air drying, and then I can add in texture with my curling iron.
I finished my hair after curling with two products. The first was a dry texturizing spray from Oribe. I need to add texture in my hair to give it a little grit and volume. I LOVE this spray! A little goes a long way, and the smell is DIVINE. Tom Ford created all the fragrances for Oribe. I usually just pick up my hair in sections and spray in the roots. I like to concentrate it more towards the roots because if I put it in the ends it gets a little too dry and hard to get my fingers through.
After I finish spraying that in (which gives the roots a more matte finish), I like to add a little bit of shine through the ends. The second was a dry condition + shine serum from Honest Beauty. It acts as a moisturizer for the ends, without weighing the hair down. It helps relieve dull locks, and is a great finisher after curling. I like that it helps my ends get a little shine and texture without feeling tacky or heavy.
In a consumer study of 50 women of all hair types after one use:
100% agreed it’s like a magic fix for dry hair
100% agreed hair looked and felt soft, shiny, silky and smooth
100% agreed frizz and flyaway hairs were visibly reduced
Rub 2-3 drops in palms and work through dry strands between washes. (It’s concentrated, so a little goes a long way!)
Small enough to carry in your purse!
Work through ponytail (or other styles) mid-day to revive and moisturize.
I think using products to finish the curls is what really seals the deal. As you can see at the end, I really like to work my hands through it all to give it a nice, full, piecey texture. I hope you enjoy this quick video, and it gives you some inspiration when you are working on your wavy hair! XO
