Hey Amanda,

I have a short bob ut but I' d love to be able to wave/curl it a little occaisionally, but my hair doesnt hold curls well, how can i encourage it to hold waves and curls for longer and which tool should I use to curl it?

First off, when you shampoo and condition your hair, make sure that you are using products appropriate for your hair type. If you have fine or thin hair, you would not want to use something that is moisturizing because it can weigh the hair down. When conditioning, only apply the conditioner to the ends of the hair so it doesn't weigh it down at the roots. After doing your shampooing and conditioning, you will want to put a firm hold gel prior to blowdrying. Blowdry your hair with your fingers. You are going to get more volume doing it this way. Choose a curling iron that is more likely to give you small curls. I would suggest a 1/4" iron. Don't worry if it is too curly to start out with, the curls will loosen up, especially if you don't hold curl well. Make sure to section your hair off in about 1/2" sections. Spray on the thermal spray then use your curling iron to curl that section. You may need to separate it into more sections around the head to assure that you have got all of it curled. Hold the curling iron in the hair for 15-20 seconds close to the scalp, but not on it. Repeat this step until the whole head is curled. Just make sure you are putting the thermal spray on each section. Turn head upside down and run fingers through the curls to loosen them up a bit. Finish with a firm hold hair spray.

Products I would suggest for this specific style would come from the Kenra line. These can be found in most salons (except Great Clips). Yes, these are all professional products, so even though they are pricier, they are well worth it.
