For soft loose curls, use the biggest diameter rod, and for super-tight curls use smaller diameter ones.

How to create traditional curls:

If you’re rolling the rod away from your face, as most of you probably will be doing, bend the edges up into a “U” shape.

If you’re rolling the rod toward your face, put them into downside U shape i.e. with the ends pointing down.

The verdict: The tighter you twist with the maximum rods, the more spiral and bounciness you get.

How to create Loose curls:

Hold the thickest flexible rod against your head and wrap it upward with loose ends.

How to create wavy curls:

Twist your hairs around the rod instead of rolling it upward or downward from nearest area of scalp

How to give definite curls to curly hairs:

After slightly dampening your hairs, apply mousse or hair serum(I will provide the best one links at the bottom) and enclose curling rods. Remove next morning or at least after 4 hours.

Cheaper Alternatives:

You can sleep with those and wake up with gorgeous curls by wrapping it with a scarf, T-shirt or sleeping cap, the one I use is:

Or, what My sister do is use the fluffiest pillow to sleep (jugaad we say)

Getting away from that endless cycle of heat damage, you can curl your long hairs without heat which is very important for your hairs! Always remember these points for your care regime during curling your hairs:

  1. Detangle your hairs thoroughly before anything!

2. Always ensure that your hairs are partially dampened to give it a shape of your choice, I prefer 90% dry(better spray water).

3. Do not brush your hair after styling, let it sit and comb with a wide-tooth comb (in case you want those beachy waves).

4. Wash your hairs and Apply conditioner to prevent frizz, before styling your hairs.

5. Be patient, depending on the length and texture of your hairs. The curls holding power may vary, use a setting spray if that does to you.

6. You may use alcohol free hair-spray afterwards.

Let any product air dry before using it for at least a day. Talking about quality, we spend thousands of bucks in salon to get those curls done but buy poor quality products to do at home which lasts like for years for entire family, Never-Never purchase poor hair serums that may cost your hairs!

For ceremony/outings purpose


Once you get hold on with these heat free styling tools, it will become your second nature to quickly do it! Do share your manes on instagram with the #hairmegood or by tagging me.

Happy Styling!
