5 Steps to amazing curlsIt’s true – healthy, shiny curls are on every curly-haired girl’s wish list! But anyone with even the slightest wave knows that achieving a glorious mop of curls is way easier said than done.

That’s why we’re taking the guesswork out of enhancing your hair’s natural texture with this easy-to-follow guide:

1 Prep 

Apply a lightweight leave-in conditioner to damp hair. Comb through using a wide-tooth comb, moving from the ends upwards towards the roots.

2 Rake

Spread a non-tacky styling cream or gel from your roots to ends with your fingers, raking through to help your curls keep their natural shape.

3 Diffuse

Scoop palm-sized sections of hair into a diffuser on a low setting until dry. For straight hair, nix the diffuser – scrunch ends to bring our waves.

4 Curl 

Define your curls with a thin-barrel curling iron. For straight hair, mist hairspray onto 2cm sections. Pin into twists, let cool and remove pins.

5 Spray

Loosen curls with your fingers. Spritz a touch of shine-enhancing gloss into your hands, rub them together, then run over hair to tame flyaways.

Done with the relaxers and straighteners? These tips will help you to grow out your naturally kinky locks.
