Oh my gosh I was at the hair salon for 2.5 hours today while she tried to get my hair the way I want it. It took forever and my hair would not stay up! Or hold a curl for that matter. I’m going back in the morning but anyone have any suggestions? I didn’t wash it at all today and I’m not going to tonight either. My hair has never done this before… ugh!

Try adding dry shampoo. It will give it more texture and something to grip more.

Do you have any pictures? Without being able to see specific problems I can give a few ideas. 1) Did she spray each section of hair before putting it in the curling iron? This can help set curls in fine straight hair.
2)Does your hair normally hold a curl when you do it at home? If so speak up- tell her what setting you use on the curling iron and about how long you hold each curl. Offer to do one to give her an idea what works on your hair.
3)Was the weather super humid? That will definitly effect how your hair turns out.
I hope tomorrow goes better for you.

Agree with PP’s. I usually wait a day after washing my hair if I plan on creating a long lasting style. There’s just more texture that way. Especially if it’s thinner hair.
Have you been using a different shampoo/conditioner lately?

Does your hair normally hold a curl well? Even in humidity?
After washing your hair, did you rinse it well? I mean stood under the stream for a solid 2 minutes rinse?

Do pin curls, my hair doesn’t hold curls well either but pinning them helps. Curl them with a curling iron and then pin them up for a while with alligator clips and when you unpin them the curls will be much stronger than simply curling them.
