Styling naturally curly hair


Curly hair is beautiful, but it can be difficult to style.


The key to creating gorgeous curls is all about finding the right products and techniques for your hair type.


In this post, I'm going to explain how to get beautifully defined curls with a simple technique that only takes 5 minutes!




The product application.

DO NOT TOWEL DRY YOUR HAIR BEFORE APPLYING PRODUCT!

My favorite products to use for curly hair is a high shine styling cream (for smooth and reflective curls because naturally curly hair is more dry. scientifically) and a mousse or gel for definition and hold.

How much product do you use?

The rule of thumb is: use your thumb and pointer finger to wrap around your hair at the base of your neck (as if you're about to make a low pony). The circle your fingers make around your pony is the amount of product you want to use.

Start by emulsifying the product in your hands, and with prayer hands, apply the hair product evenly throughout your hair.

Distribute the product evenly by using a Denman brush or a Farmar brush to comb through sections of your hair equal to the size of the hair brush base. I personally like to start from one side of my head and work my way around. You could also start from the base and work your way up using sectioning clips.


Use a t-shirt or microfiber towel.

When you're done with the product applications and brushing, use a t-shirt or microfiber towel to scrunch the excess water from your hair.

This will help prevent frizz and keep your curls looking defined. Let your


hair air dry or use a diffuser on low to medium airflow with warm temperature. its best to hold your head sideways, place the diffuser at the ends of your hair and move upwards to your scalp. hold for a minute or so and move to the next section. the other method id hovering your diffuser around your head. To avoid frizz, you do not want your hair to be moving when using a diffuser.






I can't wait to hear if this worked for you!
