Wish i could help you...i have naturally curly hair (though very uneven and unruly) so I spend most of my time trying to straighten it. Without perming i can't see a long term solution for you to have curly hair!

Fwan, my hair is super straight. the only way i can have truly curly hair is to get a perm. right now, it's been cut so that it wants to flip, but i still have to use mousse, dry it on a round brush, spray with hairspray & use the curling iron on it. if i don't do these things, it lays flat regardless of the cut. with the cut & doing all that other stuff, it will flip slightly. if i had a blunt cut, it wouldn't do any curly/wavy stuff at all, regardless of what i tried.

I don't think I'll be any help. My hair is so thin. If I blow dry it, it dies and falls limp. If I let it naturally dry it curls up.

Mine is naturally curly, too, so I'm not much help. It was straight when I was younger, though, and hot rollers worked pretty well for me.

My hair is curly if I use the Aussie scrunch spray and then the Aussie freeze spray after it has dried a little. If I get out of the shower and just mousse it my hair is limp and straigh with semi waves. Try Aussie then freeze it to your head.

I have my mothers hair, everyone on my fathers side of the family has curly hair!!!! Even when my dad lets his hair grow a little bit it curls lol!

Hot rollers dont work, i have fine hair too so its kinda woopy.

I dont have that aussie freeze stuff.. I dont think ive seen it here either.

I guess i will have to keep on using the mousse and carry a small bottle with me where ever i go.

although i did buy gel today,,, its called wet gel, extra extra strong lets see if it works

You can always do a perm but I will never because it might not have the effect you want.

I'm thinking hot rollers might be your best bet. Put some gel in your hair while it's wet and then put your hair in rollers- make sure you get the kind that you can use on wet hair. Leave it in the rollers til its dry and then gently take out the rollers, and use your fingers to put the curls in place, then hairspray it within an inch of its life! Don't brush out your hair when you take out the rollers or you'll lose the curl.

Do you use a curling iron??? I have a really good one (or 2). this won't help but it looks like it is called/made by Hot Tools. There is a knob you can turn up the heat up I was told never to turn it over 6-7 as it will burn your hair. I have a smaller rod and a larger one depending on how many curls. Also my stylist uses a round ceramic hairbrush to put a slight curl on the bottom. My hair is stick straight too-remember too many styling products will weigh your hair down!!

I agree with Olly. Put some gel or styling mousse in your hair first. Warm up some hot rollers (or clairol use to have these rubber twist and locks. They were green and like mini-hot rollers. don't know if you can still get them. Maybe eBay?)
Then before rolling your hair, twist it. This will add extra curl (trick I use to do when I was younger).
When you take it out carefully shake the curls out so they fall naturally.

Another trick I use to do and I know this sounds retarded, but wash your hair at night and using clean socks, roll your hair up in them. Tie them to lock in your hair. Go to sleep and voila! In the morning you remove the socks and have wavy or curly hair!
