Spiral curls are also sometimes referred as ringlet curls. These are tight bouncy curly hairstyles which look very cool. Don't know what I am talking about? Imagine curly hair type between curly Afro and wavy hair. What you imagined are the spiral curls. These can look very romantic and with an updo created using spiral curls, you can look gorgeous!
Method 1 - Perming
If you are thinking of getting your hair spiral curled permanently, then just go to a salon. The stylist will use medium-sized rods to perm your hair. Perms can take many hours, so make sure you do it on a day when you are free. Perms can last for months, till all your hair grow out. However, hair perms are not a good idea, as they can be, first of all, expensive. And, what if you don't like the result. Also, the harsh chemicals they use are not good for the hair health. So, think twice before you go for this.
Method 2 - Sea Salt Spray
This is my favorite way of how to curl your hair. Why? Because, it is so easy! However, I use this technique more to style my hair in beautiful body curls. But, the same method can be used to create springy spiral curls. To do this on damp hair apply a sea salt spray. But, you can use other similar styling products too. I have found that a good curling serum or curling mousse works the same.
So, apply the product on wet hair generously, then twirl one strand of hair around your finger tightly and then blow dry. Voila instant spiral curly locks. This way work on the rest of the hair to get spiral curls. Don't have these products? Then use the below technique on how to curl hair with a flat iron.
Method #3 - Curling Iron
First apply loads of hair cream or serum on your hair, to protect it from the heat damage. Then twirl your hair tightly around the curling iron, and apply medium heat. You will have created a nice spiral curly lock. Work the same way with the rest of the hair.
Method #4 - Bobby Pins
Damp your hair and apply a hair setting solution, like a cream, spray, or anything similar. Then hold the hair away from the scalp, and twirl it around the finger tightly, and set it on the head using bobby pins in a cross pattern. Repeat for all the hair sections, and leave the hair like this overnight. Take off the pins in the morning to reveal great looking spiral curly hairstyle.
Method #5 - Rollers
Another great way to curl your hair is using rollers. If you feel the plastic rollers uncomfortable to sleep with, then use foam rollers. This method is similar to the above. On damp hair apply a hair setting solution, wrap it around medium-sized rollers, and the fix them with bobby pins and leave overnight. Remove rollers in the morning, and you will have bouncy soft curls.
So, what are you waiting for. Gather stuff you need to style your hair and create cool looking spiral curls, or hit the salon and get permanent spiral curls that you can wear for months. Enjoy!
