Homemade curls are easy to make, but it is important that you know the right techniques for the same. Long soft curls or the short frenzied curls have always been envy for women with natural straight hair. However, to the delight of the straight hair owners, it is indeed possible to make your hair look curly and wavy all day through. You can try a host of different curling styles with your hair to get that perfect flirty sassy look, and the alternatives can delightfully range from soft curls on the hair ends or crispy, tight curls right from the top of the hair. And if you thought that curling your straight hair will make you break the bank, then it is indeed delightful to know that making homemade curls will not cost you a single penny from your pocket, and it is simple too.
Homemade curls can be made for long, medium and short hair, and it is indeed impossible not to find at least one hairstyle that perfectly matches your personality and haircut. You can make the curls in the most natural manner, or try your hands with some styling products as well. However, if you want to have a free way to get the homemade curls, you can simply braid your hair, the traditional one, and make sure that you weave a tighter one. Leave it overnight, and it will make tight waves on your hair next day. You can get loose waves as well by weaving the braid loose, and you will get a look somewhat like a crimped hair. However, you cannot wash your hair or else you will lose the curls. Another simple way of making homemade curls is to roll your hair in a soft bun while the hair is damp, and leave it overnight. This tip works best on some particular type of hair only, but the result that it leaves looks stunningly gorgeous with natural wavy texture or loose curls and extra flicks on the sides.
You can also use cosmetic methods in styling your hair with homemade curls with the hot rollers or the curling iron. However, it is important that you use some gel or hair mousse that serves as a primer to provide lift and volume to the curls. Shampoo your hair well and use a conditioner before you start with your homemade curls. Blow dry your hair, and use your fingers to smoothen the tangles. Apply the curling iron in sections while the hair is still damp to get those stunningly gorgeous homemade curls.
