Cooking Curls ( FOR CURLS THAT WON'T STAY )
1) Cut the tin foil into square pieces. Your hair thickness, length, and size of curl you desire will dictate how large the pieces should be.
Since I'm doing large curls, I cut larger pieces of tin foil, about 5x6 inches. For smaller curls you can probably use 3x4 inch pieces. This is something you'll have to probably test to make sure the foil piece is large enough to wrap around your hair.
2) Then you'll take a piece of hair, again, since I'm doing larger curls, I wrapped my hair around 3 fingers, for tight curls, wrap a much smaller piece of hair around one finger. Then, in keeping your hair coiled, slide it off your finger by holding the ends so they don't slip out.
3) Wrap the tin foil around the hair, and then fold the bottom of the foil up to hold. Do this until you've wrapped all of your hair, mine took 11 pieces of foil, other times when doing tight curls, it's been up to 30 wrapped pieces.
4) Then use your straightener to heat the foil, for large curls, about 45 seconds, small, 20-25 seconds. Do this until you've heated all of the pieces of hair.
5) Wait for the foil to cool and then you can begin pulling the foil out, but don't pull it out until it's cool. The foil slides right off and there's your curls! You can use hairspray if you like, but mine will even hold all day.

Get rid of static in your hair
by using dryer sheets. With one sheet, smooth it over your entire head going from root to ends. To avoid getting static altogether, rub the dryer sheets on your brushes and combs before using them on your hair.
Baby hairs and cowlicks
are incredibly annoying, but there’s a way to tame them. Spray a toothbrush with strong hold hairspray and comb down the baby hairs and cowlicks so they’ll sit with the rest of your hair.
Protect your hair from chlorine
in the pool by completely wetting your hair and saturating it in conditioner, leaving it wet. Your hair will soak up the chlorine-free water and conditioner instead of the pool water, which will prevent the damage and color turning that chlorine can do.
by drying your hair with a cotton t-shirt
instead of a towel, then blow drying on the cool setting. Regular towels can cause a ton of friction which disrupt the cuticle and create frizz, so cotton t-shirts absorb water without causing friction. Make sure to squeeze your hair, not to rub it, while drying (which can, surprise, create more frizz-making friction). Blow drying on the cool setting to keep the cuticle closed, which won’t make as much of a frizzy mess as the hot setting.
To help hair grow healthier
opt for 3-4 Brazil nuts every day. You will see the difference in your hair within a few weeks."
Rinse your hair with vinegar
before shampooing, twice a year. Doing this helps to make your hair look shinier and cleaner; plus, it treats dandruff. Use 1 part vinegar (preferably organic apple cider vinegar) to 3 parts warm water, then rinse and wash your hair as normal.
