Curls in Less Than 5 Minutes: Learn How to Get Effortless Waves
Who doesn’t want to have beautiful curls? Whether you’re looking for a new style or want to revive your current one, this article will teach you how. In the following paragraphs, I’ll cover what products are best for your hair type, styling tips that work well with curly hair, and some of my favorite hairstyles.
Curling your hair can be a time-consuming process, but there is an easy way to save yourself some time. Gather your hair in three sections and twist each section around itself before tucking it under the next section. This will create waves that are ready to go. One of the best things about this method is that you can wear them curly or straighten them for a sleeker look. Before curling, make sure you have heat protection spray on hand for added safety.
The first thing you need to do is brush your hair and comb it out. Now, grab a small section of hair at the top of your head. Wrap this section around your finger and then twist it up until it reaches the scalp, hold for a few seconds, and release. This will help create curls that are uniform in size instead of some being bigger than others. The next step is to pick up another small section from underneath where you just did the curl, wrap-around finger again but this time let go before reaching scalp to create tighter curls or let go when still on top of head to have looser waves. You can also use curling iron if you want more defined curls or keep going with fingers all over for softer waves.
Ways to Curl Your Hair Faster
Curls are a force to be reckoned with. They can turn up the volume on any style and give us that extra bit of rock n’ roll edge we’re looking for in our appearance. But, sometimes, they don’t want to cooperate. So, here’s how you can get that perfect curly look with minimal effort:
- Prep your hair by applying a light conditioner or leave-in treatment – this will soften your curls and make them more manageable
- Section off your hair into four sections
- Take one section at a time and twist it tightly until it forms a spiral
- Braid the strand from there down to where you want the end of the braid to be (typically at about shoulder length)
- Do this for each section until everything is braided. You are now ready to rock that curl!
- Hold the spiral shape for about 15 seconds (or as long as you can)
- Now, let go gently release them.
