I've just learnt how to curl my hair with my GHD. Only problem is I can't get them to hold and stay. My hair is shortish so it's not because its to heavy. I also hair spray when I'm finished but doesn't seem to help.
My hair has always been able to hold a curl very well except with the GHD. A I not keeping the heat on it long enough? Is there some kind of product I can use?
I'm going to a 50th next weekend and really want to master it.

Any tips on keeping GHD curls?

My hair dresser did mine with a GHD one day and the curls stayed for aaaaaaaaaaaages..too long actually, I wanted them to drop a bit haha.
The way she did it was, grabbed the section of hair in the GHD and turned it inwards towards my face, held for a second then slowly dragged it out. Once the curl popped out the end, she wrapped it around her finger to make it more defined and neater then moved on to the next one. Loaded it with hair spray afterwards too.
I dunno if that is the same method you used or not but thought Id share incase its not. My hair is just past my boobs and the curls stayed for ages, even with the length and weight.

I give each section a really light spray with hairspray just before I curl. Don't over-condition your hair before.

I have also been know to put a really small amount of curling mouse through my hair before I start and letting it dry before starting.

Try to do it on 'dirtier' hair, as in not washed the same day. When I had my hair done by a wedding hair stylist she was adamant that dirtier hair is easier to style.
My GHD gives curls that hold, but it 8 years old... So not a current model.

Ah thanks everyone! I'm guessing its because of the conditioner then. I've been doing it when it's just dried after washing/conditioning or the next morning.
London I *think* I'm doing what you described. Trying to anyway. The curl comes and then disappears not long after.
