Curling Your Hair With A Flat Iron
Flat irons are not only perfect for straightening the hair, they are also great for adding perfect curls to your hair…
If you have been holding off on purchasing a ceramic flat iron, wait no more! Not only do they do an amazing job at making your hair silky straight, they can also add amazing spirals, curls and flips,….all without having to purchase additional appliances!
Before using a flat iron, we always suggest using a heat protection spray to help protect the hair from the heat. In addition, if you hair has a problem holding curls, you might want to use a holding spray.
Using a small section of hair, apply the flat iron closest to your scalp and slowly move it away. Once you are about 2″ from your scalp, rotate the flat iron 180° as pictured above and slowly continue to pull the flat iron away from your head. Be sure to keep the ends in place so they can slide through the flat iron as well. Once you hair is released from the flat iron, you will see that your hair will have a nice “body” curl. If you wish to have tighter curls, move the flat iron through your hair slower and for looser curls, move the flat iron through your hair faster.
For spirals, you will need to again start at the scalp and roll the flat iron 360°, then continue to slide the hair through.
If you are wearing a high-heat synthetic fiber (aka Eventra), you will need to move the flat iron through your hair much slower and be sure to not pull the hair as you slide it through. Pulling on the hair will result in the hair being pulled straight and you will be left with an uneven curl.
