Curls

This isn't innovative, but I wanted to tell you about a product that was brought to my attention. Thermal Heat Setting Spray.

I like to pride myself on knowing about hair. I have had short hair for a while and I love finding new products for it. But this one flew under my radar (well mostly because my hair holds curl well.)

As I've said before, Sophia's does not. No matter HOW MUCH I hairspray. I even tried hairspraying before (also bad, do NOT do that..bad for your hair). So a hairstylist I know suggested I try thermal heat setting spray. I bought ours at Sally's. They only had one brand. They carry it at salons tho. You spray it on before you curl. HINT: Do NOT spray all over hair!! Spray each spot at a time..otherwise it all gets tangely and messy and a little sticky. don't panic, when it goes on, it WILL be sticky..but after it curls it isn't.

This is how great it held the curl. I'm excited! (Sorry they're blurry)

So, do you spray this heat setting stuff before or after you curl it? It looks awesome btw. And, I guess I've been doing a big no no. I always spray some hairspray before I curl :)

Good question, I'll add that into the post! Yes you spray it on before.

Woohoo! Glad to know about this, Cady's hair is bone straight. I use the curling iron, and it's like I did nothing, it falls right out.

Jeni said...

Do you use a flat iron? My baby's hair is EXACTLY like your little ones so I am curious how you curl it? Thanks for your great ideas!

Ya soph's you can't even tell we did it by the end of the day Sheila!

Jeni- I use a small barrel curling iron. I believe it's a 1 inch. It's one I already had, if I were purchasing one specifically for Sophia I'd probably go with a 3/4ths inch or 1/2 inch one..but I do like the bigger curls the 1 inch gives her. I do use my flat iron when I do her hair in her regular haircut a-line style.

HTH!

Would you mind posting a picture of it. I do better with a visual.

Emmers said...

Jamie- Of the spray or the curling iron?

Toni said...

That looks awesome! How did it hold up by the end of the day?

Emmers said...

Toni- It had fallen out a little, but it still had major body and you could tell it was curly. Just not as ringlet-y. But she also ran all around outside and rolled her head on grass n stuff (oh and carseat LOL)

The spray.
