If you’ve been experiencing some frustration because your hair won’t hold a curl, you’re not alone. Plenty of women go through the sometimes lengthy process of washing their hair, blow-drying and then curling their hair… only to have their style fall flat within the hour!
Getting your hair to hold a curl can be quite a challenge, but this simple product lineup helps make it a whole lot easier. Invest in these beauties from the drugstore, and get ready for curls that will last far into the night and, if you do it right, up to a few days. Read on:
How to Get Your Hair to Hold a Curl
1. Prep your strands well.
Most women associate hair mousse with naturally curly hair. Well, even if you haven’t been blessed with natural curls, you can still use mousse to your benefit. Run Bed Head by TIGI Foxy Curls Mousse through your hair after you wash it and before you blow dry to add bounce and movement into your hair. Your strands will be much more susceptible to holding a curl pattern with a little help from a great hair mousse.
2. Protect your hair.
TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray is a beauty world fave—and for good reason, too. This product is known for adding a protective layer to your strands before you heat style and for making your style last longer! Simply spritz your hair with this heat protection spray before using any hot tools for added protection and hold.
3. Make it last.
We can’t talk about how to hold a curl without discussing a strong-hold hairspray. Nexxus Maxximum Finishing Spray is our go-to for when we need a product that is guaranteed to deliver long-lasting benefits. Once you’ve curled your hair to perfection, mist this hairspray over your style to lock your curls in place. If you’re looking for added texture and volume, lift your curls up as you spray and let them fall as the product dispenses from the bottle. This will give your hair that lived-in, sexy texture without sacrificing any hold.
