Straighteners, Rollers and More:

-Hot Rollers: You get two types of hot rollers, with heater coils or steam activated hot rollers. They come in variety of shapes and sizes. They may require longer time than a curling iron, but are easy to use. Divide your hair in 3 parts, brush dry hair. Now roll these hot rollers towards the back of the head. Wait for the curlers to cool down (at least 10-12 minutes).
-Foam Rollers: Depending on the size of curls you want, divide the hair in sections. Brush hair and coat with mousse or hairspray, use the correct amount of mousse. Wind the segment of hair tightly in the foam roller, from the bottom to the top. Use bobby pins if required to hold them on the scalp. You can blow dry hair, and keep the rollers for the required time. Remove the roller slowly.
-Straighteners: Use a good hairspray before using straighteners to curl hair, as they are very hot. You can get curls that last for a good 5-6 hours using a hair straightener. Always spray hair with heat protectant, and brush hair thoroughly. Divide into square sections depending on the size of curls you need. Hold the iron close to the scalp, make sure you do not touch the scalp, (as the iron is very hot, you don`t want to burn the scalp). Now close section of hair in the iron , flip it again on itself, like a half turn. Move the iron slowly, for more defined curls, from top to the ends.
