To go further: 5 ways to use a curling iron

The loopback method

Some women find that curling their hair is complicated. Yet, it is, in fact, very simple to achieve. To curl your hair, separate your hair into several parts. Then wrap each wick around the heating cylinder for a few seconds. The duration for the pose, depends on the size of your hair and the mark of the looper. This duration varies between 6 to 12 seconds.

Once the loop is formed, remove the cylinder and repeat the action over the entire head. To warn you that your hair is already looping, some devices have a signaling mode. They therefore produce a sound signal to warn you that your ball is shaped. But that does not prevent to be vigilant enough for fear that your hair will dry up.

The different existing loops

With your looper, you can make several forms of loops. To make tight loops, opt for a conical or fine-diameter looper. Wrap your hair around the conical looper leaving it on for 10 to 12 seconds. Please especially to reduce the time of installation, if you have too fine hair.

For tighter curls, apply the pose on the end of the looper. For loose loops that are even very trendy, wrap your wick around the looper without over-tightening for the same length of time, taking care to reduce the exposure time if you have fine hair. Tightening would mean making tight curls.

Finally, the undulations, which are also the happiness of women, are realized with a looper at a lower temperature than the others. Space especially the strands on the looper to create the ripple effect. These loops take more seconds than others, for that, it is necessary to decrease the temperature of the looper.

Some precautions to take

Before use, make sure your hair is dry. Being wet, you could be burned, which is undesirable. Remember to dry your hair in the open air or in the hair dryer.

Protect your hair against heat by applying a nutritious cream. In order to optimize the resistance of your hair, opt for a weekly treatment for regular use. Plus, if you have fine hair, reduce your looping sessions to once a week.

The looper is a beauty accessory that allows ladies to make beautiful loops well formed. There are all forms according to the desired style of hairstyle. However, be sure to take the necessary precautions to maximize the strength of your hair and avoid burns.

"I spent a good part of my high school years straightening my hair very often because I did not accept my curls ... Then 6 months ago, I had a click when falling on your Instagram, and I so I decided, in my turn, to find my pretty curls!
So I cut and opted for a color change also to take a kind of new haircut ahah! I went to a natural routine and today I wear my curls proudly. Seeing this evolution in 6 months makes me so proud of myself, and I encourage all those who wish, to go natural and to assume! "

"I spent all my time straightening my hair, every day without exception and sometimes even twice a day if I had to go out at night! And the height is that one day I wanted to have curly hair, and since I did not like my hair naturally and well I bought a looper at 200 € (my straightener was also the last generation which cost a kidney). Obviously my hair did not really appreciate all these attacks so I tried to buy the shampoos we saw everywhere on YouTube, filled with silicones, and which promised us a dreamy hair! Then I came across accounts like that of La Belle Boucle and even if my smooth hair I miss sometimes, I now like my hair natural! I have not found my ideal routine yet, I have a lot of frizz but I find what suits me little by little. "

"For more than 20 years, I have subjected my hair to the worst atrocities: brushings, smoothing, looping, chemical staining ... In 2018 I realized that my hair was not in top form. I noticed as a result of my last complete chemical staining in November 2017 that my hair did not react as before. They were soft, dull, dry, without shape, no longer held the colors and they were impossible to style. Then I discovered the Instagram page of La Belle Boucle including pictures of its evolution and it was the click. I knew that I did not have her natural hair texture, but I could find my beautiful ripples with good care and a lot of patience. After nine months of appropriate care, good gestures and a plant coloration, my hair regained volume, shine, pretty loops were drawn as and months. I take pleasure in taking care of them and see them transform themselves. I have not finished my transition yet because it remains a chemical base on the lengths although I cut them regularly. I'm excited to see them evolve
The most beautiful compliments I had on my hair: My 7 year old daughter told me that she wanted the same curly hair as her mom. My mother (who for months encouraged me to resume the smoothings and did not understand my stubbornness to go natural because she thought I looked like nothing) told me a few weeks ago that she had forgotten how my hair could be beautiful in nature. And finally, a colleague asked me last week for tips for his loops, the height. I immediately pointed to the Instagram page of La Belle Boucle telling him all the good that my hair and I had removed.
For nothing in the world I'll come back and I can not even imagine myself straight hair ... "

"I finally assume my curls! I'm proud of it, they are more and more beautiful! I needed a meeting, I needed "Uninhibited" Loops to finally look into the subject. Since my meeting, among others, with La Belle Boucle I learned a hair routine, I learned to know my hair, to understand them, I still learn but I am already conquered and convinced of the care rather natural. The evolution is CANON, they are more silky than ever, softer, lighter despite my mass! Taking selfies - on your advice - help to continue, improve her routine to be a beautiful Bouclette in force! Thank you, thank you for "The last time I went to the hairdresser was in August 2018. It was around this time that I discovered La Belle Boucle, Little Gaby and Ninatelle. It was the last time I used non-natural products. I gave my shampoos to my darling not to throw them away. After several exchanges on Instagram, I bought my first natural and cruelty-free products. It's complicated at first, we're afraid of doing something stupid. But I'm starting to find out much more easily what to take. I also ordered two cleaning products from Les Secrets de Loly website. They are economical practices I totally love! And big revelation about the care of my hair: wet and scrunch in the morning upside down. No hairdresser had ever been able to explain this kind of movement to me, so generally I took off my hair only on the day of washing. I know that my curls are not perfect yet but I already like the current rendering. My next hair change will be henna. Thank you again for everything you share! "your valuable advice. "

"I have been following La Belle Boucle for 1 year. I smoothed my hair 7/7 and I performed 3 straightening for 8 years until I accepted my hair and their true nature. It was not easy because I did not know how to go about it and they gathered in straw. And then one day looking for ways to style them I came across a video of La Belle Boucle ... From there my life has changed! I discovered his Intagram and his blog and I followed all his great advice. Thanks to his tips I regained confidence in myself, I know how to feed and beautify my curls. Thank you The Beautiful Loop and long live the curls! "

"It is thanks to this first photo with my dry and damaged hair that I became aware of the urgency of accepting me and being natural to me. And thanks to La Belle Boucle I started. Even if there are ups and downs, it feels so good to accept oneself as we are and to get to know each other better. And I think I can say that this is one of the best decisions I've made in years. My curls have become a passion! "

"Here are my hair 2 months of difference (they took a nice volume and especially pushed). In my teens, my hair and I was not crazy love. Lisses, no moisturizing care, hair clipped on my head in a bun, dry styling ... In short, I had to hide this bunch at all costs. Then a change in my life changed me, and I decided to assume it. It took me a long time but today thanks to the advice of La Belle Boucle, I finally saw a real change. Today I fully assume my curls, so you too start! "

"Since the age of 14, under the dictates of smooth hair, I have abused my curls with the straightener, chemical stains, discolorations, shampoos stuffed with good stuff and no masks or care ... I did not assume my curls and they suffered from this lack of love! In 2016, the click: I stop the straightener, it is stored at the bottom of the closet. I am beginning to inquire everywhere about the maintenance of such a mane. The Beautiful Loop, Ninaturelle, The Little Gaby ... Article after article, video after video, I learn, I understand and ESPECIALLY I apply to the letter! But in February 2017: the drama! I crack, my hair is dull, it's winter, I want to clear up! Here I am in the hands of a hairdresser who forgets to watch the time and chatter a little too much ... I feel that my skull is heating ... I see the smoke in the back of my head! Here I am platinum blonde on the back of the head. The hairdresser left to rest too long, my hair is burnt ... More loops, after all this work ... I stop moping and I go homeAromaZone ! List in hand, recipes noted, I'm full of healthy products and natural. I throw all my old products and put myself in the kitchen. I keep poking around on every blog and learn more! Today I listen a lot more and I respect my curls! I have never loved my hair so much! And I can not see a picture of me with smooth hair anymore ... Finally # uncomplicatedoftheduckle # teambouclées!

"In college I smoothed my hair every Sunday night to have them smooth all week (with some retouching time.) In high school I bought a curling iron for loops but not mine, I wanted them pretty and well done. And then in college I had a little less time to take care of so much of my hair so I left them a little quiet, I smiled much less ... but I wanted blond highlights so I did some discolorations (wicks, lightening, tie and dye). And then one day I got tired of having to spend hours trying to have pretty hair so I looked on instagram "curly hair" and then I found the account of The Beautiful Loop! And there I found so much easier to go natural than to fight every day trying to comb hair that swelled with moisture, with dry ends and forked! I have not touched a straightener / looper for months and I will never go back! I feel myself more and I now totally take my curls! "
