One of these days I am going to rid myself of my curls, or so I think. I have a sneaking suspision that one day I will come home and be fed up with them. Until that day, I want to carry them around me happily. And I do. And I am. Happily.
But the question is still asked, again and again. I have tight curls, and people ask me how to curl shirt hair. The thing is, with me it is a lot of good genetics. If there is one “true” way to do it, or a traditional method which is better and significantly more consequential than the rest. In essence, I don’t know everything about how to curl short hair, but I have a thing or two to say.
First off, avoid overuse of all of those sprays. Use irons and rod in moderation, as well. Too much messing will get you results, but could also fry your hair. One of the very first things I was taught about irons and stuff, is that you need to err on the side of caution. If you are planning on having your hair around for life – and hey, you probably should! – then there are certain precautions you need to take.
This is not to say that it is not possible to have some major hair which is unaffected in a harmful way. All things exist, you know? At any rate, hair. And curls are a hairstyle which can be rocked in many ways and formations. Soft curls, tight curls, and anything in between.
So, how do you best curl your hair? I am not entirely sure. Anyone who says they have THE answer…. I don’t know. But some shampoos, conditioners, and quality products could certainly help you to get where you want to go.
You know what I love? The oldschool rollers look. You can get some of the best and most amazing results with those old fashioned methods. You walk out of the house or hair salon after a roller session, and it’s like BOOM! For those who are able to get that done and execute it properly, it is probably one of the most sought-after looks, curls-wise. Here is a great article about how to curl your hair by Maple Holistics.
Of all the various hairstyles and looks one can create, there is something more “understable” (I guess?) about curls. To me, on a personal level, it doesn’t seem to necessitate such intervention. Sure, you could find all kinds of harmful ways to obtain a certain look. But for curls, all you really need is some of those rollers, or something similar.
Once you lose interest in your hair, feel free to change it up. There is something so very refreshing about a new look. And going with curls is a classic look which can greatly benefit your life, and turn some heads in the process! When we look good, we feel good – there is no escaping that. Our appearence matters, so get out there and own it!
