8 Ways to Care for Your Ringlets

For those of you not blessed with naturally curly hair, ringlets can

be made using a curling iron, hot rollers, or foam curlers. It

doesn't matter how you create your ringlets, but it is worth the

effort to keep them looking their best once you have. Here are

eight suggestions to help you care for your ringlets.

1. Protect your hair before curling.

Various products can be used directly on wet hair to prepare it for

curling. A protective serum is important when using heat to create

ringlets and using foam mousse will help condition your hair and

increase hold later on.

2. Curl your hair only after it's completely dry.

Wet hair will not hold a ringlet and damp hair isn't much better.

To ensure that your ringlets are longer lasting, completely dry

your hair before starting to curl it.

3. Properly portion your hair while curling.

Portioning your curls into smaller amounts will allow your ringlets

to last longer. It's also recommended that you make the curls

tighter than you actually want them, because loosening will

ultimately occur.

4. Use quality products to hold your ringlets in place.

A quality hairspray will go a long way in caring for your extra bold curls

and weather resistant sprays using heat to create your ringlets. a good

heat activated hairspray could be worth the investment.

5. Avoid brushes when styling your ringlets.

Only use your fingers when styling your ringlets, because a brush

or comb will just separate the curls and lead to frizzy hair. If for

whatever reason you must use a brush, make sure it's a hair pick.

6. Be weather conscious while wearing ringlets.

To keep your ringlets looking their best, avoid adverse weather

conditions. Humidity and wind will cause your ringlets to fall and

become frizzy; rain will completely wash out your curls when


7. Avoid rough housing and strenuous activities.

Actions like rough housing and other strenuous activities or

direct contact should be avoided whenever possible.

8. Keep a small bottle of hairspray with you for touch ups.

Some of your ringlets are bound to loosen and fall. For quick

repairs, simply wrap any loose curls around a finger, lightly apply

hairspray, and let dry. It won't be perfect, but it should hold well

enough for a quick touch up.

Because it can be time consuming to give yourself that highly

sought after ringlet look, it's important that you properly care for

your ringlets so that they can keep looking their best. With a little

extra care before, during, and after you curl your hair, you'll be

sure to amaze yourself and others with your long-lasting and

beautiful set of ringlets.
