3. Hair Curling Process:
Some rules of thumbs for you to keep in mind while curling your hair
Firstly, wrap your hair with a straightener similar to the way to wrap with a curling iron. Close the straightener incompletely.
Secondly, adjust the heat according to the color of your hair. The darker your hair is, the more heat you will apply. Make sure the heat is enough by feeling the warmth of your hair.
Thirdly, do not rush by putting lots of hair in one single curling motion because it will be so hard.
Apply the straighter to the hair part at the nape of your neck. You should hold your hair while turning the straightener around. This motion is different from the curling iron. You should wrap a portion of your hair and slowly longways pull it out.
Below illustrates how you should control your straightener:
Hold the straightener firmly and turn it by twirling your wrist.
