Hi cuties! I’m so excited to share with you today how I achieve my (almost) everyday soft curl, that’s when I don’t decide to wear it natural or straight. I usually swear by my Conair curlers, but I have recently been loving the one I use today by Revlon. (All products will be listed throughout post and at bottom) I’m a bit of a unique case, as I don’t like using wands – I find they make a sharp narrow curl,when I aim for luscious, soft curls. While hair can be different for everyone, clamp curlers are what I prefer.
Usually after I get out of the shower, I’ll do my routine skincare and sit down to do my hair. I know, hair before makeup is kind of weird, as people will do the opposite – but this is how I’ve always done it. In terms of hair, my first step is applying “It’s a 10” Leave in Conditioner which I SWEAR BY! I talked about this in my holy grail summer post.
I’ll then move on to blow drying it, and within the recent months I’ve been using my mom’s old T3 Tourmaline Dryer in the color white! This dryer is incredible, and drys my hair in record minutes, 10 minutes is my record timing 🙂
Next up is my Revlon 1.5 Barrel Inch curler, which has been my go-to for about 3-4 months. I love the size of the curl, as well as how it can pick up enough hair so it doesn’t overlap when it’s curled in the barrel. My one tip with soft, wavy curls is when you are holding a curl, make sure to bring the curling iron down straight instead of unwinding the curl. This will ensure that the curl will stay upright, rather then dragged out and probably falling out, which is a common problem for many.
I break my hair into 3 sections when curling, making sure i brush out each section afterwards. This is to ensure it keeps a subtle look, rather then tight curls which is not what we’re going for.
I have a short tutorial that is linked on my Instagram page, check it out here and follow me if you aren’t already! I answer any beauty/hair/skincare questions over DM’s.
