Your hair must be totally dry before curling your hair. You can use a blow dryer if needed. To make sure your hair is protected from getting fried it is best that you apply a mousse or a heat-protectant spray. This will also make your hair shiny. If you want, you can add a curl-enhancing product to produce big, voluminous curls.
