Just because you might have natural or naturally curly hair, doesn’t mean you can’t curl your hair with a hot tool! Curling already curly hair adds more texture from creating different curl sizes and allows you to experiment with volume. If you want to go all the way and curl your entire head, go ahead! But, having curly hair prior to curling is an advantage, you only have to curl about 60 percent of your hair to create a convincing styled look. Whatever you choose, don’t forget these key products/steps.

How to Curl Natural Hair
Start with Air-Dried Hair.
Start with your air-dried curls so you’re working with your natural texture. On dry hair, work in a moisturizing leave-in cream to hydrate your curls. Love Beauty and Planet Smooth and Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Leave-In Smoothie Cream is one of our faves, it smells delicious!
Apply a heat protectant before going in with your hot tool of choice. TRESemmé Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray will keep your curls healthy and frizz-free after styling.
Use your hot tool of choice (curler or wand) and begin to wrap some of your curls aroud the tool. We recommend taking larger sections of hair to create more volume and to not curl every section to maintain different sizes of curls.
Use some hairspray to set tour curls in place for the day. TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1 will give you the perfect amount of hold without making your curls crunchy.
