I can't get my hair to stay curly,

When I get out of the shower, I wrap my hair in a towel, do my makeup, then brush my hair, put leave-in conditioner, then hair spray, wrap it in a towel again (I heard makes it stay longer), then more hairspray....but a few hours later my hair is going flat!!!!!

  • get a defuser attachment for your blow dryer.

    put in mouse and scuntch..

    less is more for curly hair.. too much product will weight it down.. so use a leave in FOAM conditioner.. loose the hair spray for a foam mouse.. (mix mouse and conditioner, rub into hands and lightly apply to hair, the defuse) end with a light finishing spray when dry.

    do not use a brush.. comb with a loose teeth comb. then style.

    OR get a curling iron.. or rollers.

  • Put a perm in your hair. When you want it curly take a shower pat it dry then put mousse in it and let it air dry. When you want it straight use a hair straightener.

  • I wash my hair the night before..put in mousse..and do an old fashioned bun on top of my head. I start the pontail for it with my head bent down for max volume...I twist the hair as I put it into bun. My hair dries overnight...I have to put it up early in the evening though because it is pretty long and takes a while to dry. It stays in really well.

  • be aware.. heavy hair wont hold a lot of curl..
    not all blonds have a medula so their hair wont hold a curl.
    damaged hair can loose its medula resulting it it not holding.

    so if one of the above applies you may be sol.

    if it is too heavy.. get it thinned
    if it is too damaged, get a protein treatment and better shampoo and conditioner
