Invest in some color protection hair care products, and treat your locks to a nourishing hair mask once a week.

Remove the curling iron by pulling it downwards, and you should be left with gorgeous tubular curls.
29. Lea Michele Curly Hairstyle: Tousled, layered curls
Glee actress and singer Lea Michele looks radiantly beautiful with her tousled, layered curls and long, choppy bangs.
