Styling Tips For Curly Hair
I’ve always thought of curly hair as “frizzy and unmanageable”, that is until I tried the following hair care routine.
I’ve learned how to effortlessly style my curls so they hold for days! I’m not implying that this will work for everyone, but it has worked for me and majority of my “curly girl” guests as well.
I will be using R+Co products, which have been amazing to work with and have totally transformed my curls.
Shampoo & Condition
Shampoo thoroughly with R+Co Atlantis shampoo. This product is very moisturizing and a little goes a long way. Rinse & repeat if necessary.
Condition ends with R+Co Atlantis moisturizing conditioner. Massage leftover product into scalp and start to comb the curls with your fingers. Rinse in cool water.
Set your part using your hands or a pick, do not brush the curls.
Spray in R+Co ONE prep spray to detangle and prep the hair. This will help comb out any tangles without pulling the curl out.
Cocktail R+Co TWISTER & TINSEL together and start to scrunch hair in an upward motion. This will help shape and form your curl pattern. Section and twirl product into hair for more coiled curls.
After extensive towel drying, grab your blow dryer + diffuser. Work with medium heat and start in small sections.
Holding your hair up toward the scalp with the diffuser will create the most volume for your curls, without creating frizz.
Tilt your head back and work in small sections for easier access to all of your hair. The key is not to over dry, as this will create frizz.
Mist R&Co SAIL soft wave spray all over your hair and scrunch in. This will set your curls and will also lay down any frizz created from blow drying.
Air dry the remainder and you will be left with soft, natural, beachy curls.
