Curling 101: How to use the curling iron
Prep your hair
Protect it from heat
Before you let the curling iron touch your strands, use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray all over your hair. This would shield it from the damaging effects of heat styling, and at the same time it would help seal in shine in your tresses.
Divide & conquer
Divide your hair into two sections, using hair clips to keep one section out of the way while you work on the other.
Take a section of hair, wrap it around the wand, and hold for 10 seconds before releasing.
Keep curling your hair section by section until all of your hair is nicely curled.
Loosen the curls
When you’re done curling, gently rake your fingers through your hair to loosen the curls and give it a more laidback, effortless vibe.
