How to make your curls last longer

There is nothing worse than taking the time to create beautifully bouncy curls, only to have them lay flat and lifeless within the hour. Straight and sleek hair girls know exactly what we mean! If you seem to find yourself in this situation more often than not, then take a look at our tips below to help make your curls last longer. 

 

Start with a wash - NEVER curl freshly washed hair! 
 

While you shouldn't curl freshly washed hair since your hair will be too slippy and clean to hold a curl, prep your hair a day or 2 before you plan on curling by using as shampoo that will give your volume.  We recommend the BioSilk Volumizing Therapy Shampoo as it contains rice proteins to give extra volume and strength to your hair. it also contains silk protein to give your hair incredible shine that will show even through your curls!

Even though many hair experts frown upon conditioning hair that will soon be curled, using a conditioner specifically made to add volume to your hair can work wonders. The BioSilk Volumizing Therapy Conditioner gently conditions while providing volume and body to your hair. Similar to the shampoo, it too contains silk and rice proteins which work to add volume and increase shine. 

 

Simply apply the product from the mid-lengths to the ends of your hair, being careful not to add it to your scalp. Rinse the product out well with cool water to help seal the cuticles and leave your hair feeling strong. 

 

 

 

 

Prep your hair
 
When you’re ready to start curling - preferably 1 -2 days after washing, prep your hair to give it some extra texture and thickness which will come in handy when styling your hair.

Let it cool

Now that your hair is beautifully styled, let those curls cool! Grab a cup of tea, read a book or check out our other hair-care posts here while you let your curls cool completely!


 

Finish with a spray
 
Once your hair is all cooled down, spray a fine mist of hair spray over your curls to help it stay in place for hours. The BioSilk Volumizing Therapy Strong Hold Hair Spray is our top pick since it will keep your curls looking fresh while protecting the hair against any UV rays.
