Six Common Curling Iron Mistakes Everyone Makes --- from professional stylists

Tuesday, July 24, 2018 12:03:18 AM America/Los_Angeles

Before you can become a pro, however, it's helpful to be aware of what you shouldn't do during the curling process. This way you can avoid making mistakes and be on a faster track to styling success.

1. Using Hairspray Before You Curl

Sure, it may seem like adding a few spritzes of hairspray prior to curling would help hold your style better. BUT it would likely damage your strands in the meantime.

2. Using an Old Curling Iron

Wands and irons that are past their prime won't be as effective. The iron might feel hot, but it may not be heating the hair correctly anymore, which will likely cause you to go over each section too many times and burn the hair.

3. Holding the Curl on the Iron for Too Long

If your goal is to get super-tight ringlets, then, by all means, hold the curl until it becomes a tiny cue. But if you're looking to create timeless beach waves or loose curls, you should avoid holding the curl on the iron for too long. We recommend that you should run the curling iron through your hair section by section for only three to five seconds and then release.  If you don't release fast enough and hold the iron for any longer than that, your curls will be much tighter

4. Curling From the Ends Up

Here's one reliable tip: Always curl from the roots, down. The ends of your hair are more delicate and don't need nearly as much heat to curl. You should always start from the top, working your way downward, for best results. Leaving your ends last will cut down on damage, and give the overall style a more natural-looking vibe.

5. Playing With Your Curls Mid-Process

The curls won't hold up as well if you do this — especially if your hair doesn't like to hold a curl. Do not even think about brushing or touching those curls until the very end when they have cooled down and the whole head is done. Once they've cooled down and set themselves is when you can use your fingers or a comb to tweak them to how you want them to be.

6. Using the Wrong Sized Iron

Want big waves or voluminous curls? It doesn't necessarily mean you need a bigger iron to achieve it. Using a smaller, longer iron allows you to get a more defined wave. As a general rule, use a smaller size curling iron than the curl you want because the curl will end up being two to three times the size of the iron.

How to Style Your Baby Hair

Tuesday, July 17, 2018 1:20:27 AM America/Los_Angeles

        Whether you have your hair swooped to the side, slicked down, or gelled over, your look isn’t complete unless your baby hairs are together. It is very important to know how to lay down a baby hair in a way that instantly polishes and upgrades your look.

        The key to getting those baby hairs perfect? Water, a small brush, and a little gel. Spray water on a boar-bristle brush (or toothbrush) and brush baby hairs forward. Then use a drop of gel and brush the hairs so they're curling toward your hairline, not straight down your forehead.

The 25 Best Hair Tips from Pro Stylists

Friday, June 22, 2018 12:28:18 AM America/Los_Angeles

A superfine mist of water from a spray bottle can loosen curls without fully rewetting the hair, and it air-dries in seconds.  

While blow-drying, let hair cool before taking it off the brush. Everyone speeds it along, and it’s why their hair falls or curls don’t last.  

To prevent a texturizing or surf spray from turning hair dull, mix it with a few drops of hair oil in your palm and then rake it through hair.  

For loose waves, use the iron’s clamp to pull hair smooth at the roots, then wrap the length of the hair vertically around the iron, leaving the ends out.  

It’s not the sexiest look ever, but get a satin bonnet to wear while you sleep. It’ll preserve any style overnight.  

To smooth the back of your hair, brush it forward (over your shoulders) as you dry it — creating tension at the roots with your brush dries the hair straight.  

To refresh curls, use a hair dryer on the cold setting: Blast dry hair from side to side, swinging it with your fingers to bring curls back to life.  

It’s hard to think of cutting thinning hair — if you’re losing yours, you don’t want to give any up — but trimming two inches makes it look fuller.  

Healthy hair holds color longer, so do weekly deep-conditioning treatments to keep yours vibrant and shiny.  

For volume, blow-dry the roots first, lifting them with your fingers. When you start with the lengths, you pull down on wet roots, flattening them out.  

Section curly hair into four twists in the shower and smooth shampoo on top of each one and your hair won’t get tangled when you wash it.  

For a sleek pony, tilt your head back 45 degrees and gather your hair with a mixed-bristle brush. The more bristles, the smoother your hair will be.  

If you’ve transitioned to natural texture, it’s so important to keep hair moisturized. Use a leave-in conditioner after every single shower.  

For the easiest bouncy volume, use dry shampoo (from roots to ends) before bed, and sleep with your hair in a bun for lasting volume the next day.  

If your hair is thinning or lacks volume, adding highlights can swell the cuticle, giving the appearance of more hair.  

Turning your wand from vertical to horizontal when curling will give you a softer wave.  

If you only use co-wash, your hair could get limper. Cleanse your scalp with a scrub every once in a while to take off dead skin cells.  

For a subtle bend that’s identical to a round-brush blowout, curl your hair with a giant two-inch curling iron, and set the hair with clips for 10 to 30 minutes.  

When you’re not sure what to do with your hair, part it on the side. It exposes the undersides, which usually look healthier and shinier than the top layers.

If you want your blowout to last, hair needs to be 100 percent dry or it’ll frizz and fall. So feel around for damp spots and dry them.  

I always stretch out my washes one extra day by putting my hair in a low bun with a thin layer of pomade on top so it looks sleek, not greasy.  

For a no-bump updo, blow-dry damp or dry hair in the direction of the style (e.g., from the nape and sides upward for a high bun or pony).  

Spritzing your hair with a little water reactivates yesterday’s product so you don’t have to pile on more (that can weigh down your hair).  

When you’re pressed for time, try a texturized pony. Twist hair into three mini buns, set with a diffuser, then shake your hair out and tie the ponytail.  

If you accidentally put too much product in your hair, use dry shampoo all the way through to the ends to soak it up.

How to Take Care of Your Curly Hair

Wednesday, June 13, 2018 2:36:57 AM America/Los_Angeles

 

How to Take Care of Your Curly Hair

If you've got curls, you already know that caring for them can be quite a handful. Curly hair is a bit more delicate than straight hair, and the tighter the curl or coil, the more fragile the strand. Curls generally need a little extra love, and it's important to know how to do right by your hair so it can stay looking amazing. Below are some of the common mistakes that people easily make, be careful to avoid them.

Overcleansing Your Hair

Washing your hair every day is a no-no when you have waves, curls, or coils. By shampooing it frequently, you are actually drying it out. Cleansing it once or twice a week should suffice.

Blow-Drying Your Hair Improperly

Air-drying your hair whenever possible is the best choice for popping curls. When that's not an option, use a hood dryer or blow-dryer with a diffuser attachment to circulate the air without disturbing your curl pattern. Shooting hot air directly on to your hair is the quickest way to damage your strands and turn your crown into a big, frizzy puffball.

Skipping Conditioner

Textured hair can often be dry, dull, and frizzy. It needs moisture to look its best and have that bounce and sheen we all desire. With curls, you want to add hydration, shine, and definition. Look for products with moisturizing, beneficial ingredients, like coconut oil, shea butter, and argan oil.

Using A Terrycloth Towel

Terrycloth has tiny nubs that fluff up your hair cuticles, causing them to frizz. They also absorb too much water out of the hair, which can make it tangle. We recommend that you use a cotton T-shirt or microfiber towel to scrunch dry. Your hair won’t look frazzled or matted.

Overdoing It With Heat

Heat styling is a major curl destroyer. Just one single pass of the flat iron or curling iron can permanently alter your curl pattern. Try turning down your hot tools halfway. You’ll still get smooth, sleek results with less damage.And, of course, don't forget to use a heat protectant to minimize further damage.

Treating Hair with Chemical Processes

Even temporary chemical treatments can permanently alter the way your curls look and behave. We should always avoid to use them.

Applying The Wrong Type of Styling Products

We stay away from products containing silicones. They coat your hair and only provide Band-Aids, not long-term moisture. They are not water-soluble and tend to build up on the hair causing it to look lackluster, limp, and unmanageable.

Also, anything that has alcohol in it is terrible for curls. Alcohol sucks up moisture and doesn’t allow curls to bounce. You need moisture-based products and a finishing oil to seal, define, and eliminate frizz.

Detangling With The Wrong Type of Hair Tool

Never use a fine-tooth comb on textured hair. You’re just asking for all types of trouble, especially snares and breakage. Hair brushes should also be used at a minimum — they break up curls and invite frizz to flourish. Use your fingers or a wide-tooth comb, working your way from the ends to the roots, to work through any tangles.

Touching Your Hair Often

Don’t touch your hair too much. You’ll break up your curl pattern, which will lead to frizz.

Skipping Trims

Lack of trimming can add to breakage. If you don’t snip the split ends off, they will continue to fray and make your hair look frazzled and lackluster. Simply dust every few weeks to keep your curls looking bouncy and healthy.

Not Protecting Your Strands While You Sleep

Cotton soaks up the natural oils in your hair, robbing it of necessary moisture. Some stylelists suggest tying your hair in a satin scarf or sleeping on a silk pillowcase to preserve the health and shine of your hair. The silky fabric cuts down on tangling and breakage — another plus for your curly top.

Going Unprotected in the Sun and Surf

Not protecting your hair when you go to the beach is a disaster waiting to happen. The combo of sun, salt water, sand, and wind can be very drying, not to mention leave your hair gnarly with nasty tangles. Apply a leave-in conditioner, such as René Furterer Karinga Hydrating Styling Leave-In Cream, to protect your strands from these unfriendly elements.

 

Curly hair is charming. And it requires a lot of care work. But it's worthwhile.

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 2:49:01 AM America/Los_Angeles

GOOD HAIR vs NON-GOOD HAIR

Please look carefully at the photo. You can see that the 2 hair appear in quite different color shade. Would you believe that actually both hair are in color #1B, and under same camera.

Q: What makes them look different? 

A: The answer is hair cuticle! The hair on the left has an unique sheen that the hair in the right doesn't have, it's the sheen of HAIR CUTICLE. 

Q: Good hair all has hair cuticle?

A: Yes! GOOD HAIR, hair cuticle all intact and kept in same direction. While NON-GOOD HAIR, hair cuticle is removed using acid bath because of tangling.

Q: Why hair cuticle so important?

A: It's the hair cuticle that keeps hair healthy, strong, long-lasting, free of tangling and long-lasting. Bad hair may feel smooth and soft in the beginning, but it will turn frizzy and tangling very quickly.

 

All wigs from BelleWigs.com are using cuticle virgin hair, it's one of our basic priciples.
