How I Get Hairdresser Curls At Home – AD

My hair has pretty much stayed the same over the years. It’s always been dark (let’s not mention the ginger months), and although I’ve tried different hairstyles, it has always been long. Having long and dark hair gives you a lot of freedom when it comes to styles. Updos, ponytails, waves, straight, you name it I can do it. Apart from plaits. I’m terrible when it comes to plaits. Recently, I’ve had a lot of people compliment my hair and the way I curl it, so I thought I’d write up a post about how I get hairdresser curls at home!
If you love a curly blow, like me, you’ll know that it’s nearly impossible to recreate hairdresser curls at home. However, recently I have stumbled upon Pro Blo. This is legitimately a lifesaver. I use the Pro Blo Curl Me Deluxe and I can’t recommend it enough. If you have longer hair, you can also get add-on kits. There are also some great alternatives out there too!
How To Get A Curly Blow At Home
I start by towel drying my hair and adding in some heat protection for my hair. If I want some extra shine in my hair, I’ll use the John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength Serum. I then let my hair air dry for around 30 minutes. You can order a lot of the products I use online if you wanted to.
My hair is quite thick, so if you have thinner hair ( and don’t want to look into a hair transplant cost), I’d give it 15 or 20 minutes.
How I Curl My Hair At Home
Once I’ve doused my hair in protective spray, I then set up my Pro Blo and begin by sectioning my hair into quarters. Pro Blo works by attaching curler heads to a brush handle. Once you have curled your hair, you release the handle and secure the barrel in place with a clip. You then continue to curl and grip the barrels into your hair until you resemble a crazy cat lady.
Once all the barrels have cooled down, I remove them one by one (in the order I dried them in). I then brush out the curls with a barrel brush and add some Frizz Ease Glossing Mist along with hairspray. I have no preference in hairspray, at the moment I’m using Aldi’s own range of hairspray in extra strong!
Below is the end result! For me, it’s the perfect way to get hairdresser curls at home and without the hefty price tag.
Other Hair Curling Methods
If I can’t spare the hour it takes to curl my hair in this way, I curl my hair another way. This produces thicker and tighter curls, but they can be brushed out to achieve your desired look. The way I do this is by washing my hair, spraying heat defence all over and then drying my hair with a hairdryer until it’s virtually dry (if my hair is still damp in places, this is ideal). I then secure foam rollers into place all over my head. If I curl my hair in this way, I tend to have the style messy and draped over my shoulder, so I start on the left side of my head, angle the curls inward and then move around until all of my hair is in place. I use the sponge curlers from Boots. At £3 a pack, they’re a bargain!
Once my hair is in place, I’ll sleep in the curlers (they’re spongy so I never notice them) and then take them out in the morning. I brush my hair into my desired style, then spritz with hairspray. Although I have thick hair, these curls can drop after a long day, so watch out if you’re wanting to try this method!
