Right here’s slightly up to date video on how I fashion my shoulder size hair – common readers have seen this all earlier than, I’m unsure a lot has modified.
The Cloud 9 curling wand continues to be the device of selection (right here*) – it’s simply the best diameter for the curls I wish to make (they rapidly drop into waves) and it doesn’t have a clamp to barter with. I don’t get on with the tongs with a clamp at all.
I select to twist slightly than wave as a result of if I simply wave the hair, by the top of the primary day it’s virtually straight ,simply with higher texture and quantity. Curling it provides me at the very least a day or two of full, horny waves after which a day or too extra of texture. If I take advantage of sufficient dry shampoo and take a look at to not contact my roots I can get 4 full days out of 1 torturous curling session!
(It’s not that unhealthy. I simply get aching arms from holding the wand within the air, which is testomony to how unfit I’m. Or perhaps not unfit: untoned. My arms have at all times been weak and flimsy; it was my intention, once I was in my twenties, to essentially buff them up, GI jane-style, and do pull-ups like Sarah Connor in The Terminator however I feel I managed about 4 pull-ups, as soon as, earlier than I made a decision that arm power wasn’t for me.)
After curling the whole thing – it’s essential to part off tiny strands as a result of in the event you attempt to do chunks which might be too huge they don’t curl so effectively – I spray my roots with Residing Proof Dry Quantity spray (right here on-line*) after which the entire thing with Elnett hairspray (on-line right here*.)
Dry Quantity Spray is a hair miracle in a can: spritz roots and therapeutic massage in and BOOM. Large quantity with none crunch or stickiness. It’s quick turning into my “can’t reside with out” hair product. Elnett is for holding the waves. Once more, no stickiness or crispiness, this simply brushes out in the event you want it to, although I like to simply layer it over quite a lot of days till I’m left with an enormous, grippy mass of hair on prime of my head.
Any questions, let me know within the feedback. My hair, by the way in which, is reduce to all one size simply at shoulder stage in a form of blunt-ended lengthy bob. No layers.
