Learning how to care for your curls takes time, energy and work. There can be a lot of research, trial and errors, as well as pitfalls along the way to finding a curl care regime that works for you. Whether you’ve got one that works or are on the market for something new, here’s a quick and easy three minute curl care routine you can give a try.
Step one: Flip your curls upside down, and spray a leave in conditioner throughout your damp hair. Make sure to pick one that’s the right weight and consistency for your curl’s textures.
Step two: Once curls are spritzed, flip your hair back over. Use your fingers to work the product through your curls as lightly as possible to avoid disrupting your curl’s natural texture and pattern. Form your part.
Step three: Flip your curls over again (try to avoid getting dizzy!) and add in your product of choice, such as mousse, styling cream or gel. Work the product through carefully, so you know it’s covered each individual curl. Once you’ve applied the product, wrap your head in a microfiber towel or old t shirt before flipping yourself upright.
Step four: Allow your curls to stay in the towel while you finish getting ready. This will allow their shape to set and the natural texture to hold in place. Right before you’re about to head out for the day, take the towel off. Arrange your curls how you’d like them to fall, taking care not to over handle them, which can create frizz and ruin your curl’s texture. Use a light hold hair spray or curl setting spray, and head on out to conquer your day.
