Your hair should be as wet as possible when you begin the styling process. After shampooing and conditioning, do not towel dry. In fact, don’t bring a towel anywhere near your curls. Instead, squeeze the excess water from your hair and throw a towel around your shoulders.
Once you exit the shower, begin applying your styling products. If your hair begins to dry without product on it, that’s how it will continue to dry. Putting products on it while wet locks in the style.
In addition, curls love to clump together. You can use a paddle brush, Denman brush, comb or your fingers, but as you work through wet hair, you’ll notice that curls love to grab onto other curls. Let your hair take the lead and allow curls to come together on their own.
