CHOPSTICK CURLS

Eng: I am not blessed with beautiful curls, my hair is flat as my body but that is okay. I am the last person you should ask for beauty advice, since I am always asking others on what I should use on my face, hair and anything related to that. But, however, I can say that I have enough experience with hair colouring to know what might and might not work for my own hair. I once saw a similar hair do on Angelica Blick and I’m obsessed with Val Mercado her curls. So I went on YouTube to see how to get these small curls and they were using some sticks, which I didn’t had at home. So I grabbed a chopstick and just did it my own way. It takes me 1 to 2 hours, which is surprising because I thought I didn’t had that much hair at all. But the trick is to use small amounts of hair to create these curls. The products that I used are linked and were a gift from John Beerens. Like I said, I am no beauty expert, so receiving these products made me a happy girl. Without further ado, here is how to create chopstick curls:

Main products needed:
Chopstick from wood
Hair straightener
Hairspray

Since my hair is totally dead, destroyed and dry from the hair dye I am using the 2-phase thermo conditioner from Hair Doctor every day. I spray it before I use the hairdryer or straigthner.

My hair really needs all these products so after the spray I use argan oil for the ends of my hair. It smells so good.

Then the fun can begin! Important: SPRAY FIRST! then the curl last longer or it might go wrong like the picture below. I noticed that after two curls.

So spray first, then take a small string of hair and curl it around the chopstick. Just go up and down with the hair straightener and…
