Wash your hair with a shampoo that has hair fall-reducing properties. For this tutorial, we recommend using Dove Hair Fall Rescue Shampoo and Dove Hair Fall Rescue Conditioner to help reduce falling hair while keeping your hair nourished.
Then, apply a dollop of TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse to help add volume to your hair. The mousse can also help smooth out frizz so you get beautifully defined curls.
Section your hair
Leave a thin section of your hair in the lower part loose and clip the rest using a claw clip.
Prepare your Laverag hair roller
Before knowing how to curl hair, you should first know how to use the tools. Pinch the end of your Laverag hair roller and insert the hook, pushing it all the way through.
Insert a small section of hair into the hook
Get a small section of the loose hair and insert it into the hook. Make sure the hook faces upward. Then, pull the hair through the Laverag hair roller.
Use long and short Laverag hair rollers
If your hair is long, one Laverag hair roller may not be enough, so you can use one long and one short on each section.
Do it all over your hair
Repeat this process until all sections of your hair are covered in hair rollers.
Leave the hair rollers on
To get the best results, leave the hair rollers on for 25 to 30 minutes. Then, remove them.
Curl the sections
To emphasize the curls, curl the sections of hair by twisting them with your fingers.
