It’s not surprising that many women aspire for curly or wavy hair - they add volume to your hairstyle and suit every type of beauty. While a skilled hairdresser can surely give you a beautiful twist, getting similar results at home isn't impossible. All you need is proper hair care techniques and a good curler-dryer.

Step 1: Nurture your scalp and hair

The secret to gorgeous and manageable hair is a well-maintained scalp. Regardless of your hair type, a weekly scrub is beneficial. Beauty stores offer a range of products designed for this purpose. Ideally, you should use them before shampooing to get rid of any residue from hair products, smog particles, and excess oil.

Scalp massages help invigorate the hair bulbs and lift the hair at the roots. Following your shampoo, it's recommended to apply a hydrating conditioner, ideally about 0.79 inches away from your hair roots to prevent your scalp from becoming oily. Products containing hyaluronic acid, retinol, or botanical oils are good options as they moisturize and prevent hair tangling.

Step 2: Comb and style

The hair accessories you choose have a major influence on your hair's health. Conventional terry towels can cause entanglements and brittleness due to their fibrous composition. Instead, try using a soft, absorbent hair turban as an alternative. The brush you use is equally important - opt for one with widely set bristles. If you're looking to create curls, comb your hair while it's still damp.

Once you've detangled your hair, you're ready to style. Straight hair can be easily curled using a cone-shaped iron with a ceramic or titanium coating. Such equipment doesn't heat up too quickly, thus avoiding hair damage. Opting for special dryer curlers that safeguard your hair during styling is also a wise decision. Don't forget to apply heat protectant products like serums or oils.

Step 3: Utilize a dryer curler

Applying protective products forms an invisible protective film on your hair. After using these, you’re safe to style your hair. A hairdryer curler is essential to achieve natural and impressive curls. Such a gadget is an excellent addition to your daily hair care. Plus, you'll often find different attachment types in the set, allowing you to create a range of hairstyles.

Many modern dryer curlers come with an in-built ionizer, which keeps your hair from frizzing and maintains closed hair cuticles. To avoid burns, ensure the curler is at a safe distance from the scalp, then gently wind, hold, and release the strands in order. Adjust the air temperature and blow-out to match your hair type on the go. High power ensures quick and impressive styling, enabling you to create Hollywood waves or bouncy curls.
