Is it teething time for your little one?
We all know that we can get sleek and straight hair from a flat iron or straightener. Sometimes though, the hair can end up looking straighter than we’d like, if so it might be worth considering using a straighteners to curl your hair. 
It is possible to get a range of results from curling your hair with straighteners. Get wonderful tight, smooth, glossy curls, loose flipped ones, or a simple curl at the end of your hair. It is remarkably easy to curl your hair with straighteners. It just takes a bit of practice, the flick of the wrist and a bit of a twist when you get to the end of your hair to prevent that poker straight, stiff hair appearance.
How to use straighteners to curl your hair:
  1. Separate your hair into one-inch-thick pieces; it’s much easier to work it in small sections than large chunks.
  2. Clamp the straightener near the roots of your hair and then slide it slowly down the section.
  3. Position the straightener so it’s at an angle that makes it easy to guide the hair in any direction. Glide the iron down towards the end of the hair and rotate outwards
  4. When you get to the end, don't release the hair. Instead, roll the straightener back toward the root while loosening the clamp.
  5. Before opening the clamp, hold the hair for a few seconds and then slide the straightener slowly out of the curled hair.
If you don't get the curl right on the first try, just let the section you were working on cool down for a few minutes before you try it again. Move on to the next section while you are waiting. The back of the head is the hardest, but keep trying; you'll get it. It takes a little while to get the hang of creating curls with straighteners, but with a little practice, you will achieve those perfect, bouncy, glamorous curls.
