How to Make Relaxed Hair Curly

Found This Helpful

Relaxed hair can end up being stick straight and flat. If you enjoy the manageability but would like more lift and even curls, you can easily make your relaxed hair temporarily curly.

Things You'll Need

  • Velcro rollers
  • Brush
  • Comb
  • Styling cream
  • Blow dryer
  • Hair clips
  • Water spray bottle
  • Hair spray

Preparing to Curl

  1. Shampoo and condition hair, gently towel drying or air drying until hair is slightly damp.

  2. Apply styling cream from the roots to the ends of the hair, combing it through gently.

  3. Part the hair into 4 sections, clipping them to keep them separate.

  4. Starting in the back, roll hair onto large or medium velcro rollers, depending on the length of the hair.

  5. Continue until all the hair is rolled.
    If hair starts to dry too much, spritz it with water.

Making Curls

  1. Aim blow dryer at each roller from a distance of about 6 inches, moving it continuously until the hair is dry.

  2. Let hair cool for about 10 minutes; this will help the curl to set in.

  3. Spray hair lightly with hair spray, and allow it to dry.

  4. Start in the back carefully unwinding rollers, letting hair fall naturally, until all the hair is loose.

  5. Lean over so that your hair is hanging upside down, and finger-comb the curls to break them up a little.
    When you flip your head back, all you have to do is use your fingers to put the curls where you want them, and spray lightly with hairspray.

Tips & Warnings
