Right here’s a bit up to date video on how I type 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 alternative (right here*) – it’s simply the correct diameter for the curls I prefer 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 quite than wave as a result of if I simply wave the hair, by the tip of the primary day it’s nearly straight ,simply with higher texture and quantity. Curling it provides me not less than 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 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 at all times 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 believe 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 necessary to part off tiny strands as a result of when you attempt to do chunks which are too massive they don’t curl so effectively – I spray my roots with Dwelling 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 reside with out” hair product. Elnett is for holding the waves. Once more, no stickiness or crispiness, this simply brushes out when you want it to, although I like to only layer it over numerous 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 reduce to all one size simply at shoulder stage in a form of blunt-ended lengthy bob. No layers.
