Tips To Curl Straight Hair Powered By Docstoc
					Do you spend hours in front of the mirror with your curling iron or flat iron, trying to
coax a little curl into your hair? When you finally do manage to get the flowing and
romantic locks you want, they seem to fall straight again in hour or so. This can be a
frustrating experience.
  If you want to add some curl and wave to naturally uncurly hair, you'll need to
properly prepare your hair to accept the curl. Start with wet of damp hair and apply a
light foaming product designed for curly hair. These products are formulated to assist
in the waving process. Gels are not recommended, since they tend to weigh down
your tresses. Mousse or other foaming products are lightweight and cling to the hair
shaft enough to give it some control.
  Apply your styling foam to wet hair, massaging it from root to tip with your
fingertips. Allow to dry completely, since your hair has natural bounce when dry, and
is also lighter, which helps the curl take hold.
  When your hair is dry, divide it into sections to be curled. The larger you want the
curl to be, the larger section you can use. Start at the section furthest from your face
so you can always see what's left to do. Wrap each section around the barrel of the
curling or flat iron, and hold for a few seconds to allow the heat to penetrate. Gently
remove the wand without tugging or twisting. If you don't have enough curl, repeat
the process for a few more seconds until you have the timing worked out for the curl
you'd like.
  You can finish off your style with a light finishing spray or hairspray. Make certain
you always use products that are designed for curly hair, because they are usually
formulated to stand up to the straightening effects of humidity.
  Don't over brush or finger play with your hair too much because this will cause the
curl to fall out. You can, however, touch up the finishing spray throughout the day,
and scrunch it a little with your finger tips. Once you get the hang of it, a little prep
work is all that's needed to transform straight hair into soft and buoyant curls.
