Great hair can be tough to maintain sometimes, especially certain styles. Knowing some hair secrets can help you keep your hair looking awesome with a little less effort. Here are some good hair maintenance tops:
Knowing what different curling techniques do will go a long way. If you’re going for Shirley Temple curls, wrap your hair around the curling wand flat without curling it. If you want defined, but loose curls, twist your hair before you wrap it around the wand. If you’re going for the Victoria Secret style waves, gently twist your hair as you wrap it around the wand.
Your hair is healthier closer to the root, so it needs more heat to hold the style. Start curling from the middle of your hair and work towards the ends. The ends are more fragile and don’t need as much heat.
Hot showers can feel awesome, but they strip your hair of essential oils. Use cool water, at least for part of your shower, to keep your hair healthier.

If you’re hair is a little too frizzy, apply a little water and a touch of lotion to your hair with your hands. Put it in a French twist and leave it for ten minutes. Take your hair down and it will be smooth.
