I've always had long poker straight hair, I don't blow dry it but its dyed every 3 months at the hairdressers. At the moment its my usual bra strap length & its fine but silky & glossy. I also have a side fringe. The condition has never been a problem because I only use hairspray, I tend to wear in side buns & messy buns & messy ponytails usually & I like low maintenance styles.
I'm having it cut to a shoulder length next week (inspired by the recent cuts on here) & this will be the shortest its ever been!
I've never been able to have curly hair before as the length just pulled the curls out but I'm hoping that with shorter hair I can. I'm thinking full on big bouncy curls, waves & tousles
I already have mousse, hairspray, some unused heated rollers in the attic (ion ones I think) & a hairdryer that's 20 years old
I like the look of the styling wands that are around now but last time I asked the hairdresser about them she pulled a face & talked about singeing the hair. I've also seen a youtube clip where a girl was doing a curl tutorial, was talking while she held her hair in one of the wand things & when she tried to release the hair it fell to the floor & was completely burnt off!
Its unbelievably daunting when the last time your hair was curled successfully was with your mother's 1980's snappy tongs that always gave you straight ends to the curl
Please give me a description of how you curls yours
