      Getting Curls to Start Higher up

      Section off the crown and clip to secure.  Place Octocurl as high up as possible like a halo or crown.  Release the crown, combine both sections and wrap hair around strips as usual. 

      This method also has the benefit of keeping the headband underneath the top section of hair protecting it from any indentation from the headband.

      Overnight Curls
      Octocurl is soft and comfortable for overnight use.  Use damp fingers or styling product to smooth crown in the morning.  Or try the "Crown Lift" method which protects the crown while you sleep.

      Use a hair dryer (low air to avoid any tangling) to speed drying time if needed.

      Section off the crown and clip into place before placing Octocurl.  Use the strips with your method of choice with the remaining hair.  Then release the crown and spray hair spray or apply a volumizer to roots and set with soft rollers.
