Have you ever wondered how those girls on Instagram always have the most beautiful curls? It might seem like their hair falls perfectly in ringlets, but there’s a secret to getting that look. Today, I will show you the best way to create beautiful curl clumps. Curl clumps aren’t just pretty to look at; they also make your curls look fuller and more voluminous. So let’s get started!
Steps to create amazing curl clumps
If you have straight hair, you know the struggle of trying to get perfect curls. You’ve probably tried every curling iron on the market, only to end up with frizzy, lifeless locks. But don’t despair! There is a way to get those beautiful, bouncy curls you’ve always wanted.
The key is to start with clean, dry hair. If your hair is dirty or oily, the curls will not hold as well. So, wash your hair and let it air dry or blow dry it straight before you begin curling.
Once your hair is prepped, it’s time to start curling. Begin by dividing your hair into sections. For example, I divide my hair into the top, middle, and bottom sections. This will help you to curl your hair more evenly.
Next, take a small section of hair from the top layer and wrap it around your curling iron. Be sure to wrap the hair tightly to get a nice, tight curl. Hold the hair in place for a few seconds before releasing it. Repeat this process until all of the hair in that section is curled.
Then, move on to the next section and repeat the process. Once you’ve curled all of your hair, let it cool for a few minutes. This will help set the curls.
Finally, add a bit of hairspray to help hold the curls in place, and voila!
Curl clump hacks: how to get curly hair without the clumps
Do you have curly hair that tends to clump together? If so, you know how frustrating it can be to try to style your hair without ending up with a big, frizzy mess.
Fortunately, you can use a few hacks to get beautiful, bouncy curls without the dreaded clumps. Here are a few of our favorites:
- Use a diffuser: A diffuser attachment for your hair dryer is a game-changer for curly hair. It helps evenly distribute the heat and prevents your curls from drying out and becoming frizzy.
- Scrunch your hair: When applying styling products to wet hair, use your hands to scrunch the product into your curls. This will help define your curls and prevent them from clumping together.
- Use a wide-tooth comb: When your hair is wet, use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your locks gently. This will help prevent damage and breakage, which can lead to frizzy, unruly curls.
- Let your hair air dry: Whenever possible, let your hair air dry instead of using heat styling tools. Heat can damage curly hair, so giving your locks a break from time to time is always a good idea.
- Use amicrofiber towel: Ditch the regular bath towel in favor of amicrofiber towel or an old t-shirt. Regular towels can be too harsh for curly hair, leading to frizz and breakage. Microfiber towels are much gentler on your hair and will help prevent damage.
- Sleep on a silk pillowcase: Sleeping on a silk pillowcase is another great way to prevent frizzy, unruly curls. Silk is gentler on your hair than cotton, so it won’t cause the same friction and damage.
- Invest in a good hairspray: A good quality hairspray can be your best friend when it comes to preventing clumped-together curls. Look for a spray designed specifically for curly hair that provides a strong hold without being too stiff or sticky.
With these hacks in your styling arsenal, you’ll be able to create gorgeous, bouncy curls free of clumps. So give them a try and see for yourself!
