Crimp Your Way to Fabulous Hair: A Beginner's Guide to Hair Crimping

If you're looking for a new way to style your hair, crimping is a great option to consider. Crimped hair was all the rage in the 80s and 90s, and now it's making a comeback. Whether you want to add some texture to your hair or create a bold, edgy look, crimping is an easy and fun technique to try. In this beginner's guide, we'll show you how to crimp your hair and achieve fabulous results every time.

Step 1: Start with clean, dry hair

Before you start crimping, make sure your hair is clean and dry. If your hair is wet, the crimping iron can damage your hair and cause it to become frizzy. If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, you may want to straighten it before you start crimping for the best results.

Step 2: Apply heat protectant

Using a flat iron or a crimping iron can damage your hair if you don't use a heat protectant. We recommend using EAP Heat's Thermal Serum, which is specifically designed to protect your hair from heat damage while you style. Apply a small amount of the serum to your hair, paying extra attention to the ends and any damaged or fragile areas.

Step 3: Section your hair

To crimp your hair, you'll need to section it off into small sections. Use clips to separate your hair into sections that are no wider than the width of your crimping iron. This will ensure that you can crimp all of your hair evenly.

Step 4: Crimp your hair

Take one section of hair and clamp your crimping iron down on it. Hold the iron in place for a few seconds, then release it and move on to the next section. Continue crimping your hair until you've crimped all of the sections.

Step 5: Style your hair

Once you've finished crimping, you can style your hair any way you like. You can wear your hair down, put it in a ponytail or bun, or even braid it. The possibilities are endless!

Step 6: Finish with hairspray

To ensure that your crimped hair stays in place all day, finish with a spritz of hairspray. EAP Heat's Firm Hold Hairspray is a great option, as it will provide a long-lasting hold without making your hair feel stiff or crunchy.

Crimping your hair is a great way to add some texture and dimension to your hair. With the right tools and techniques, you can achieve fabulous results every time. And with EAP Heat's high-quality products, you can protect your hair from heat damage and achieve salon-worthy results at home.
