2. Go for Moisture and Protein
This one's for everyone, however. Healthy hair holds curl better. If your hair is incredibly processed or damaged by dead ends, it won't hold a curl very well no matter what you do. That's true for any hair type – thick, fine, dry, oily, straight, wavy, curly, it doesn't matter. For this tip to work, you have to take care of your hair even before you ever try to curl it. Make sure it's moisturized; use hair masks, deep conditioners, and shampoo and conditioner that work for your hair. You can also keep it hydrated by eating and drinking the right things. Ditto for protein, which your hair needs to hold up to any style. Use what treatments you can, but also nourish it from the inside out.
