How Do I Make My Curls Last?

I Can Keep My Straight Hair Curled For Up to 3 Days Thanks to This Trick

As someone with straight hair, I love utilizing hot tools to give myself curls. Unfortunately, I used to run into the problem of having limp, lifeless strands by noon. I would go through the proper process: applying a heat-protecting product, letting the curls cool, and finishing off with hairspray. It wasn't until I left out one key step in my haircare routine that I realized what needed to change.

One day, while washing my hair, I squeezed my conditioner bottle to find that there was nothing left. I had no choice but to skip out for the day. Once my hair was air-dried, I went on to curl it like I usually would.

I couldn't believe it — even when I woke up on day three, the curls were still there.

I immediately observed that the waves were bouncier as I wrapped each piece around the barrel. Once I'd finished styling, I went on with my day. When I came back home from work, I saw that my locks looked perfect, as if they were untouched. I even slept on them and had defined curls the next morning.

I couldn't believe it — even when I woke up on day three, the curls were still there. I quickly realized that my accidental conditioner-free wash had altered my usual results. Even though conditioners are great for quenching your strands, they can also weigh down your hair. The product may even prevent you from having volume and body. By leaving this step out when I plan to curl my hair, I have more buoyancy and life in my tresses. My curls truly last for three days with a little help from hairspray.

It is important to condition, so when I'm not curling my hair, I use a deeply moisturizing hair mask to make up for the days I skip. My locks are still very healthy and shiny. If you find that your styling is falling flat, I suggest only shampooing before adding curls. It made a huge difference for me, and now I consider it to be one of my best beauty secrets.
