I’ve tried loads of curly hair products through the years, but these are the one’s I constantly come back to, to tame frizz and help my curls stay moisturized.
While warm water opens the hair’s cuticle, allowing shampoo and conditioner to penetrate, cold water closes the cuticle and seals in conditioner, promoting moisture and shine.
Keeping hair tied up during half of the air drying process promotes voluminous roots- preventing curls from being weighed down at the root, compared to air drying while hair is down.
I prefer air drying over blow drying or diffusing, because air drying allows curls to take their natural shape without interference. Hair swells upon contact with water, and gel enhances curls, keeping them naturally intact.
