Right here’s a bit up to date video on how I model my shoulder size hair – common readers have seen this all earlier than, I’m unsure a lot has modified.
The Cloud 9 curling wand remains to be the software of alternative (right here*) – it’s simply the suitable diameter for the curls I prefer to make (they shortly 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 fairly than wave as a result of if I simply wave the hair, by the tip of the primary day it’s virtually straight ,simply with higher texture and quantity. Curling it provides me no less than a day or two of full, attractive waves after which a day or too extra of texture. If I take advantage of sufficient dry shampoo and check out 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 possibly not unfit: untoned. My arms have all the time been weak and flimsy; it was my intention, after 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 energy wasn’t for me.)
After curling the whole thing – it’s vital to part off tiny strands as a result of in the event you attempt to do chunks which can be too large 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 changing into my “can’t dwell 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 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 best way, is lower to all one size simply at shoulder stage in a form of blunt-ended lengthy bob. No layers.
