How to Get VOLUMIZED Waves!

Who wouldn’t want VOLUMIZED waves?

I think it’s one of the sexiest hairstyles ever! For some people, it’s easy to achieve; but for people with straight hair like myself, it takes a bit more effort!


I always start off with air-dried hair. Applying heat protectant is one of the most crucial things you need to do before heat styling to avoid damage on your locks. What I used is my favorite TRESemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray all over my hair before curling.


After spraying the heat protectant, I make sure I section my hair well, and free it from any tangles.





The curler I used for this look is the BaByliss PRO Perfect Curl. You may have already seen it in my channel (see: video below)

“Hair is automatically drawn into the ceramic curl chamber where it is softly held and heated from all direction to effortlessly form curl. Simply release the beautiful, free-flowing curls.”

It’s basically an automatic hair curler that works with a ceramic curl chamber that pulls in your hair and lets it out looking fab and curled! There’s no manual curling when you’re using this baby!

There are different heat settings you can use, you can also try out different curl settings (I- waves, II- soft curls, III- tighter curls) I chose option I for this look. We’re going for feminine waves!

I had my heat up to 230 degrees C—I have thicker hair than normal, so a higher heat setting is necessary.

I had the timer set to 8 seconds per curl.

Tips on using this curler:

  1. Make sure you’re not drawing in TOO MUCH HAIR, the curler will end up rejecting your hair by beeping continuously—meaning the hair you put in was too much. Don’t worry, it will release your hair, and it won’t hurt!
  2. Always have the side of the chamber where it says “always use this side facing towards the head” towards your head. It’s easy because it’s written there!
  3. You’ll know when the chamber successfully drew in your hair when you start hearing single beeps (countdown)
  4. Once you hear the continuous beeps, it means that it’s time to release! And reveal those curls!

To give more volume to my curls, I added the Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume on the top of my head and even in between curls. I did a little bit of teasing to maximize the volume! I got my Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume from Makeup Hubhttp://bit.ly/1pIfZ2Z :)


I used an all new hairspray for this look, and I am loving this Gatsby Moving Lock Spray PHP275.00 Watsons. This was recommended to me by my good friend Keren of www.youtube.com/beautyklove :)



Here are some of the end results!


Pardon the no makeup look! I was filming a tutorial :)

  5. Hi Say, do you think it will work for wavy hair? I have this small-wave hair but I'd like to try some big curls.

  6. Do you still have the coupon code for this? :)

  7. Very innovative product! I like!

  8. I love curling my hair but my problem is I tend not to achieve that "volume" that I want. A friend of mine told me that teasing my hair would help add volume to it. I have a very dry hair and teasing makes it more rough. Maybe I have to try some hair treatments for my hair to go back to its natural texture. And the next time I will curl my hair, I really have to try that TRESemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray to avoid damage! :)

  9. Wow the miracurl Babyliss. Nag hahanap kase ako ng pangkulot di ko alam kung mas okay ba toh kesa sa JML.

  10. Mad bagay sau ms. Say ang curly hair! Convenient syang gamitin and hindi ka na mapapaso or something na mangangalay pag ganyan ang gamit mo. Saan ko sya na-avail?
