For those of us with seriously straight hair, trying to get loose, soft curls like the ones Kat Dennings had on the red carpet for the movie Shorts can be maddening — your hair is too curly right out of the curling iron, so then you have to brush it out a little or put in some hair creme, then your curls won't stay in without a ton of hairspray, but that just makes them crunchy and heavy, so after a couple of hours they fall out anyway. It's a sad situation, but one that can be remedied. To get you curled up with the best of them, I've put together four easy tricks for getting the most out of your curl. Just read more.
These oldie-but-goodie products stood close by me during my crazy hair days as a teenager. I find that sometimes the most simple and inexpensive drugstore products can often be better than the expensive designer types. These scrunching sprays are great for those of who have a perm that's on its last leg and they are also great at giving straight and limp hair a little body. I know that at some point you've had to have used at least one of these! Which is your favorite?
L'Oreal Studioline Pumping Curls ($3.52) is a light, curl-boosting spray with a sweet smell and a nonsticky feeling. Also, it helps reduce frizz and you can use it on wet or dry hair. Pumping Curls was my hair product of choice in the '80s and although it's not something I see regularly on the shelves, when I see it around from time to time, I love to reconnect with my old best friend!
