Are you in love with your curls when wet, only to find a frizzy mess when dry? Fortunately, you don't have to give up those well defined curls. Here's how to keep your wet curl pattern. Give these tips a try, and let us know if it works for you!
How to Keep Your Wet Curl Pattern
The shingle method:
This method can be a bit involved, but it can be worthwhile for maintaining your curl pattern. Start with wet, clean hair, and begin by working in small, manageable sections. Set each section of hair, either by applying product or by finger coiling. Once the sections are set, you can allow to air dry or gently use a diffuser to encourage the drying process.
Skip the towel:
We can't stress enough how important it is to leave your towel behind when it comes to drying your curls. Rubbing curls dry with towels can create frizz and tear your strands, which can lead to breakage. When you want to dry your strands, you can use a microfiber towel or an old t-shirt to gently squeeze excess water out of your curls without damage.
Comb and pray:
This method couldn't be simpler! When your curls are freshly washed, grab your favorite leave in conditioner or moisturizing product. Working in small, even sections, comb the product through so all the strands are coated with product. As you work, you should notice your curls becoming more defined. After the product is completely applied, add more product to your hands, and run your hands down your strands. This is a praying motion, which will apply product evenly without disrupting your curl pattern. After you've finished applying product, don't touch your strands until your hair is completely dry. You can allow your curls to air dry or use a diffuser.
