Curly hairstyles are a great way to add volume to your hair, but trying to keep them bouncy by the end of the day can be quite the struggle! The frustration is real if you’ve been testing out different ways to perfect the technique of creating long-lasting curls, yet you still haven’t succeeded. 

You might have ended up thinking that long-lasting curls aren’t for your hair – but don’t lose hope, we’re going to prove you wrong! Whether you’ve got fine or thick hair and straight or curly hair, you can have curls that will last throughout the day. It’s just a matter of using the right products and doing the right things to your hair! Keep reading to learn 5 simple tips to make your curls last longer.

Apply a heat protectant spray 

If you’re into heat styling, then you should know that it’s a golden rule to always use a heat protectant. Without this added layer of protection for your hair, your curls can end up fried and depleted since the heat will leave your strands extremely brittle and damaged. 

Heat protectant spray

So it would be best to use a heat protector, like the L'Oréal Serie Expert Vitamino Color 10-in-1 Perfecting Spray (₱ 1,400)! This multi-benefit leave-in treatment provides your hair with heat protection up to 230°, as well as added shine and softness. This will help keep your curls stay curly and bouncy! 

Apply hair mousse

Your hair needs to have the right texture to be able to hold a curl from day to night, so you’ll need to prep your hair! One way to do this is to apply the Davines This is a Volume Boosting Mousse (₱ 1,350) or the  L'Oreal Tecni.Art Full Volume Extra Mousse (₱ 1,299) onto your hair before curling it. 

Hair mousse

Your hair will be needing grit and hold to keep those curls curly, so use a generous amount of hair mousse by filling up your whole palm with the product and then work it through the roots of your hair to the ends. Thankfully, these hair mousses have a medium to strong hold so they would surely give your hair body and volume!

Invest in quality curling irons

The heat tools you use play an important role in having long-lasting curls. After all, how can you get amazing curls without any quality tools to help you with that? We recommend the Tuft Diamond Curl Bar Iron (₱ 5,400) – a beginner-friendly and versatile styling tool! It is compact and lightweight, making it easier to use and bring anywhere. Also, its ceramic coat can cause less damage to your hair and heat up better, meaning you can apply heat on your hair for a short amount of time but still get bouncy curls.

Section hair

If you don’t section your hair while curling it, then that may be a reason why your curls end up looking limp by the end of the day. No matter how thick or thin your hair is, you should be parting your hair into different sections to be able to create more curls!

Start off by parting your hair from the top of your ears and clipping up the rest of your hair with Crocodile Clips (₱ 220) – this is to make sure that you get to curl your hair without any other strands getting in the way. After curling the bottom section of your hair, repeat the whole process but this time on another section by parting your hair from your eyebrow level. Basically, you’re curling your hair from bottom to top!

Finish with hairspray

Once you’re done curling, you can top off your hairstyle with a light-hold hairspray! We suggest spraying a few spritzes of the Davines This is an Invisible No Gas Spray (₱ 1,250) or the AVEDA Air Control™ Light Hold Hair Spray (₱ 1,900) all over your curls. 

Finish with hairspray

These light to medium hold hairsprays can help secure and hold the shape of your curls for a long-lasting hairstyle. If you feel like creating a stronger hold of your curls, then spritz some hairspray on each layer of your curls! This ensures that every curl, including those on the inner side of your hair, is sprayed with enough product to keep it curly.
