Curly Hair FAQS
q: how do you define your curls?
a: to define my curls, i apply a leave-in conditioner on wet or damp hair, and finger comb it through in sections.
to get ultra defined curls, i use a gel or styling cream to hold my curls. i then finger comb and scrunch the product into my hair. after, i don’t part or touch until my hair is fully dry to prevent frizz.
q: how do you get so much volume?
a: i add more volume to my hair by “breaking the seal.” to break the seal, you simply shake out your curls from your scalp once they are fully dry. this will break up your curls and give them volume.
q: what current products do you use?
a: i am currently using shea moisture & deva curl products
i use a variety of shea moisture products and i use the deva curl decadence products.
