I love testing out new trends whether it is fashion or beauty. It is just so amazingly interesting getting a new product and learn everything about it. So for today´s blog post our theme is hair styles to be more specific – how to crimp your hair.
Crimped hair has been all the rage about 15 years back and I did not see this coming back in style but I have to admit I like it more than I anticipated.
For prepping I have been using the ghd heat protection spray and to finish up my style I love the Elnett Professional Hairspray.
The hair crimper is from Rowenta and has three different settings for different sizes of curls. The heating goes up onto 240 ° C degrees. It is under 40 Euro and I think the price is great for the product.
It is a huge tool and I really had to get used to using it cause it is a little unhandy but after some practice it is quite managable.
How I crimp my hair
First of all I make different sections and apply my heat protecting spray. Afterwards I start with the lowest layers and crimp upwards. For crimping it is best to take thin streaks. It holds best this way and in my hair which is usually curly for about 4 to 5 days which is pretty great in my opinion.
It takes about 3o to 40 minutes to crimp my hair which is quite the long time but to be honest since my hairstyle holds this long I don´t mind. Also practice makes you faster. I haven´t used the crimper that often but have really gotten into it lately.
The most important step is to not comb it when you are done styling. Only use your fingers or it will get super frizzy and bushy. Combing works best from day 3 to the end on when you still have nice waves but your hair is heavier cause it isn´t as fresh anymore.
Are you styling your hair during quarantine time or do you wear it in a top knot or ponytail?
