Today we’re talking HAIRRRRRR.
You guys have asked how I curl my hair.
Ok so I’m very, very, very specific when I curl my hair.
You guys obviously know I’m a huge fan of The Sleep Bun.
But how do you get pre-Sleep Bun curls?
WHEEEEELP, let’s start from the very beginning:
1.) I always curl OUTWARD. NEVER inward. If you’re curling inward then you’re going to get that bridal curl. Not my thing at all. I always curl outward.
2.) Use the right curling iron. Yes. There’s such a thing. I’m obsessed with Nume’s curling iron. There’s no chipper thing. The chipper thing gives me a bump in my hair…& no one likes bumps. So I am big advocate of no chipper curling irons.
3.) Never start above the ears. Seriously though. Start curling the hair UNDER the ears. Don’t start from the top. It looks like Shirley Temple if you do.
4.) Brush your hair first. I know, right? Me brush my hair? HA! I promise I do before I curl it. I’m obsessed with this paddle brush. I like to brush the top a little AFTER it’s curled too. Only the top, not the curls at the bottom.
5.) Leave an inch out. I always leave an inch out of the curling iron. Keep an inch out ALWAYS.
6.) Use a little oil afterwards. I love adding a little Argan oil (insert Nume’s oil here). Argan oil has SOOOOOooo many benefits ( to name a few: it makes the hair silker, it’s amazing for split ends, & adds moisture without adding shine ). More benefits can be found here.
7.) As far as hairspray is concerned…don’t use too much!! Just a little. A little goes a long way.
8.) Pull it through. I like to pull the curls out with my fingers a little. I tossle it a little before I leave the house & kind of pull the curls downward with my finger tips.
10.) Don’t wash it for a few days. Heyyyyyy, come on now. A little dirty hair never hurt a flea. The curls always look best the 3rd/4th day!! #sorrynotsorry
