Hi,

I have naturally very straight hair which at the moment is pretty long.
Id like to buy something that i can use to make my hair more wavy curls.
Can anyone recommend anything?

I'm not a expert but I think there is a mousse you scrunch into the hair, but I think that will only work on short hair. I don't know. And there is also curling tongs or how about heated rollers. Then are the only way I know how to get curly hair :o)
#2
eat the crusts off of some bread. :p
#3
other then a perm ,tongs, rollers or other heated products theres nothing going to curl your hair
#4
My daughter has a heated wand, its fantastic, spray a little hairspray then wrap the hair around the wand, easy. will go and see what its called.
#5
The wand is called Herstyler baby curls, it came from ebay new at £25.
#6
My daughter uses those bendy curler things - winds her hair round them, wraps her head in a scarf then sleeps like it over night - next day, curly hair!
#7
I remember my mum washing my hair, and when it was naturally dried, she put it in a plait overnight, and when I woke up in the morning, and it was let out, my hair was all curly :-D. You could try that, I can't remember how curly it used to go tho. I guess if you hair sprayed it it may last all day. It gives small waves :)

That was exciting to me when I was a small girl :-D

Buy the wide barrelled conical wand. I've got straight hair and when I curl it the curls stay in which is a miracle for me!

That looks great, I might give that a try. The reviews seem good and apparently it works on thick hair......I'll soon find out lol

I've had mine about 4 or 5 years now and I've never used anything better.

The curls stay in all night and they are much much faster than anything I've used. Takes literally 2 seconds to curl each section.

Not sure if Amazon is the cheapest site though but £23 is a good price.

Do you think they would be ok for long hair? Ive been looking at these for a while but I have waist length hair. Thanks.

I've used them with my extensions and they are about 4-5 inches past my shoulders and they were fine.

They are pretty hot so as long as you've got a small section of hair I'd say you could double wrap it and just leave it longer. If not, just do it in two gos.

thanks rhianne I am going to give these a try :) cant curl my hair with my GHD's it never looks the same as when my hairdresser does it (_;)
#14
I tried with my GHD's loads of times but my hair is far too long for it to work. Will give these a go, thanks!

Hi :)

I normally wash mine in the evening, let it get about 75% dry (if it gets too dry I spray some leave in conditioner.. you could do that anyway when you step out the shower).. Then I use some Aussie mousse (it seems to be the only one that doesn't go crunchy, stays soft looking/feeling actually holds the style). Then I take the lot and twist it into a bun, pull the fringe loose a bit (otherwise you end up with a flat top!), sleep on it - so make it pretty high up otherwise its uncomfortable, then in the morning its got some loose curls :)

I also have the pink babyliss conical wand, thats good too.

I tried the spin curl dryer but I always ended up with dreadlock type hair!! I dont know if my hair was too thin for it, or what.. Plus it seems kinda damaging, having your hair spin round so much, and half the time it knotted up!

Chemical straightening, costs about 120 or buy perming lotion and just brush it through your hair for a few hours which is what the hairdressers basically do when chemically straightening your hair.

I only have fine blonde hair but a lot of it so when curled the curls dont last long at all. I dont want really curly just wavy.
My hair is so straight that people think i straighten it, which ive never done.
Ive always wanted thick dark curly hair - you always want what you havent got lol

The girl in work with me just had it done and it looks really silky and smooth. You've got to "top up" every 8-12 weeks or so but she's bought a straightening kit from Boots to use. I think that was around £30.

Maybe try these. Could curl around both barrels for waves or use both individually for longer hair.

Lol, my hairs curly/wavy and i spend my days straightening it! However if i want curls i use the babyliss crush curl press - don't know the actual name, good for doing ringlets but if you use bigger parts of hair and don't crush when you get loose wave/curls - and use loreal elnett hairspray as it brushes out and its light aswell :)
