Loose curls on thick medium length hair


I have medium length hair but it's VERY thick, I have to straighten it in at least three sections (one half of my head at a time) but if I didn't it would be the most awful frizz bomb ever!!!

I'm going to a wedding at the end of the month & my friend has lent me two gorgeous dresses....I want to do something different with my hair though cos I have it straight all the time so it just seems boring.

If I do some curls using my straighteners, can I just curl the 'top' sections or will it look stupid with the underneath bits straightened? I think I'd look too poodle-like with a full curly head but couldn't not curl the underneath bits cos it would be too frizzy.

Pic of me below to show what my hair is like...excuse the stupid look I couldn't find one more recent.

Your hair looks lovely, my hair is very thick and kind of medium length too, and when i curl it i curl the lot, except for my side fringey bit lol, it looks very glamorous, i did it for the last wedding i went to! Thick curly hair looks good, its all about the volume x

ooh i'll never understand why people with nice thin hair want to have thick hair!! I also have the same majo affro frizz type problem if I dont straighten my hair, it used to be curly, but I've kinda destroyed it with years of abuse

I find that if I wash it, deep condition it, and then put a load of serum through it, I can scrunch it as its drying naturally which stops the underneath half going frizzy then I can just curl the top couple of layers!

I have thick medium hair too. I have got a curling wand as I couldn't curl my hair with tongs or straightners. I tend to curl either the ends of my hair or just all of it. This is what it looks like when I use the wand (ignore the ridiculous face pulling lol)

My hair is stupidily thick.

I also have to straighten mine is 3 parts.

Wash, dry and scrunch with a good hair serum.

I would suggest a wand, the one I have is only 24 from Argos, it's so much quicker and easier
