Transform Your Curls to Perfection With Pin Curls

Pin curls are a great way to reform your curls, encourage a tighter curl with wavy hair, create voluminous waves, or lock in hot tool curls for days. (not that any of you use hot tools, ever ;) ).

The Curl Girl's Product Picks for Pin Curls:

Tighter or more defined curls for wavy hair - Deva's Set Up and Above
Encourage your curls and give definition to wavy and swavy hair. 
When hair is set with your personal prescription almost dry, apply a dab of Set Up and Above to each section to be pin curled. Wrap each section around your finger and secure with a clip.  Spritz with a setting mist like Ouidad Styling Mist and allow to air dry or hold the Deva Fuser on low/low until dry to speed drying.

If you do this at home, you can do it hours before you plan to wash it - I sleep with it in my hair and wash it out with Loreal Professional Delicate Color Sulfate Free Shampoo the next morning. If you're a no-poo-er, I suggest using the Ouidad Cleansing Oil instead.  You can condition your hair as usual, or, for extra awesomeness, follow with an apple cider vinegar rinse  use up to half acv to half water, or try using 2 parts water to 1 part acv.  Let that site for at least 2 minutes, RINSE WELL.  Be SO careful not to get it in your eyes, it burns like a BITCH. It's not harsh on your hair, though - the acidity of the vinegar is actually very gentle on the cuticle helping to close it down as …
