Miranda Cosgrove showed off enviably smooth, sleek curls at the Elle and Express 25 at 25 party in Los Angeles. Sometimes, it feels impossible to make ringlets look that shiny, no matter how hard you try—the heat, the humidity, the frizz, the horror! But never fear, Miranda's look is well within reach!
It's not as easy as switching shampoos—as the commercials would have you believe—but it's definitely doable. Before you get your curl on, here are a few tips:
- Check your tap water. Hard water causes mineral buildup which can make hair dull and frizzy. You local water board can tell you how to check, or head to your local building supply store for a quick testing kit. If your water is hard, get a shower head with a built-in filter.
- Start with sleek, shiny hair. If you try to curl frizzy hair, you'll end up with frizzy curls. Add a thorough blow dry before curling and you'll set the stage for a fab 'do!
- Use a shine serum. Before blow drying or curling, apply a smoothing shine serum for an added boost.
- Apply a deep conditioner. Once a week, treat your locks to a nourishing conditioner. Your ringlets won't look cute unless your hair feels happy!
