Depending on the type of curl that you want Start by braiding your hair till the tip of the strands. If you want big full loose curls, roll the hair as pictured.


Use a hair flat iron to curl the braids or rolls, one step at a time and letting the heat take control. Just glide the iron down, letting it set for 30 seconds or so to penetrate the rolls/braids depending on how strong you want the curls, let them cool completely. Open the braids or rolls and brush gently with fingers.
