How To Curl Your Hair With A Straightening Iron
Do you want to create beautiful waves on your hair but do not have the right equipment? Do not panic! You can completely curl your hair with your straightener by following the technique presented below. Note that straighteners with rounded ends are particularly suitable.

Step 1 – Take your straightening iron and heat it up to the desired temperature (around 180-degrees for fine and sensitized hair and around 230 ° for normal to thick hair).
Step 2 – Spray a thermo-protective spray all over the hair, insisting on the lengths.
Step 3 – Wrap a section of hair more or less fine, according to the desired effect, between the two plates of the straightener.
Step 4 – Once the strand is “trapped”, slide the straightener down, while rotating it between your hands to create the wave.
Step 5 – Repeat the operation for the entire hair.
Step 6 – For a more natural fall, relax the waves with your fingers.
Step 7 – Finish the hairstyle with a salty texturizing spray for example or a shine effect hairspray.
If you want a result with wide waves, go for large strands of hair. If, on the contrary, you want a more voluminous effect, opt for smaller strands. You can also decide to start from the top of the root or just to undulate the lengths.
Little tip: for a wavy effect, leave the tip of the hair stiff!
