As we are snowed in for the next two days, I decided a shower was in order. Yesterday I spent a ton of time on the small things blog watching her hair tutorials. They’re fabulous, but she uses products that I would have to order from Amazon before attempting on my own. So I decided to create my own tutorial, albeit for crazy curls.
The longer my hair gets, the looser the curls become. I don’t want to cut it, but I miss my corkscrews. Problem solver? The bed head bubble curling wand.
Here’s how I achieve crazy volumized curls using products that can be purchased from Target or Walmart.
1. Fresh washed hair should not be brushed. Finger comb the Argon Oil (quarter-sized) through the knots. Do not put any oil on the roots of your hair.
2. Spray a small amount of the Root Pump onto the back crown of your head and rub it in.
3. Finger comb a silver dollar-sized amount of the Curl Reactivator into your hair. Do not put any of this on your roots.
4. Take small sections and twist with your fingers. Let go and twist another section.
5. Using a blow dryer with a diffuser on medium heat, dry your hair by starting at the tip and pushing up to your roots.
6. Your hair will look like a crazy rat’s nest once dried completely.
7. Divide your hair in half at the temple and twist up the top half.
8. Using the curling wand, choose and wrap small sections around the wand and hold for approximately 15-20 seconds. You should not curl your entire section. Only choose 5-10 small sections to curl, making sure to grab sections from the underneath (near your nape). The crazier your curls look, the better, as this will give you volume.
9. Take down the second half of your hair, leaving your front section twisted up.
10. Curl small sections just as you did along the bottom section. Make sure you get a few more curls along the sides of your face and in the back.
11. Take down the final section of hair, pulling it over your eyes. Find your part.
12. You will be curling all of this section. Grab the first side (my left side is smaller than the right, so I can curl this in one pass with the wand). Do not curl all the way to the root, as you’ll have an unusual bump.
13. Curl the other side of your part, breaking into smaller sections as needed. Remember not to curl all the way to the root. I leave about 2-3 inches from root to wand.
14. Go through and touch up as needed, adding extra curls in the back and underneath.
15. Take a dime-sized amount of the Argon Oil and, without touching the roots, smooth over any flyaways and loosen the curls by finger combing a bit.
I hope this tutorial has been helpful. Please leave any questions and I’ll do my best to answer as I’m able.
