Shine spray is a handy lilโ€™ tool for that extra-professional look๐Ÿ˜ My favourite is the ๐˜‰๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ถ๐˜ต๐˜บ ๐˜ž๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ๐˜ด ๐˜‹๐˜ณ๐˜บ ๐˜–๐˜ช๐˜ญ ๐˜š๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜บ. For most people, sectioning your hair in half will be enough, however if you have thicker hair it may be a good idea for you to section your hair into thirds, from top to bottom. This will give you a much more defined and long-lasting curl as the heat is more evenly distributed throughout your hairโœ… Depending on the kind of style youโ€™re going for (defined and tight or big and bouncy) you will then take around an inch to two inches in sections and curl each of these around your chosen tool. Takes a bit of practice but becomes easy after youโ€™ve done it a few times!๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ You also need to make sure youโ€™ve brushed through your hair throughly and removed any knots, as this can result in wonky curls, and removing knots afterwards can disrupt the curls too!โŒ

Once youโ€™ve curled your first section of hair around your heat tool, hold the curl in your hand without letting it fall, as this prevents the curl from dropping and losing its structure as the weight of your hair can pull it down. Be careful thoughโ€ผ๏ธ The curl can still be very hot depending on the heat setting you used - and so this is where a glove may come in handy๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ You should then clip the curl (still rolled up) to your head, spray a small amount of hairspray from a few inches away, and leave this for as long as possibleโฐ This ensures the curl has time to set and will retain its shape for much longer.

Once youโ€™ve left your curls pinned to your head for as long as possible, itโ€™s time to release them, but make sure you do this slowly so as to avoid disrupting the curl! After this, itโ€™s time to gently brush through to give that smooth and professional look, and boom! Youโ€™re all done๐Ÿ”ฅ

I hope this guide levels up your curl game - following these steps will 100% help your curls/heat style last longer and look much more professional!
