Curl definition is a regular term when it comes to the curly hair life. Undefined curls are due to a number of reasons. Many a time, humidity in the air can cause frizzy hair. Complete hair havoc right? It is important to define curls to prevent your hair from looking like a frizzy ball of mess.
Who ever said that it is impossible to achieve well-defined curls at the snap of a finger has never tried the finger coiling method. Seriously! This method is fuss-free and saves you precious time. All you need is a good curl defining cream or strong-hold gel to lend definition and of course, your fingers for curling. Just for Me Curl Peace Defining Curl & Coil Cream is another product we swear by and especially made for curl definition and max holding power.
The shingling method involves working on your wet hair with a heavy curl cream and separating each and every hair strand to curl it further using your fingers. This is kind of similar to finger coiling – the only difference here being that hair needs to be dripping wet. African Pride Moisture Miracle Shea Butter & Flaxseed Oil Curling Cream serves the purpose beautifully as it is enriched with shea butter and flaxseed oil that keeps hair hydrated, nourished and super defined.
The curly girl method is super effective and, might we add, quite unique. It involves giving up on all things bad inroder to have healthy hair. Think of it this way – it’s like going on a hair diet and not looking back.
So who’s up for cutting out on the bad guys and undoing some damage?
First things first, understand what you can and cannot use. For this method all you can use on your hair is conditioner using it to cleanse the scalp as well. The friction itself is enough to clean it. The next step is to condition hair with conditioner. We highly recommend Just for Me Curl Peace Ultimate Detangling Conditioner as it contains marshmallow root extract, cocoa butter, raw honey and is absolutely sulfate free. It is recommended to avoid shampoo, heat styling, combs and brushes, sulfates, alcohol and fragrance. Instead, use gentle sulfate-free cleansers, natural proteins and moisturizers.
Using a soft towel or t-shirt and scrunch curls to remove water. Air drying is the way to go!
The tightly curly method involves using your regular conditioner as a leave-in conditioner. Whilst this may sound odd – many women swear by this method for curl definition. Cleanse your scalp with a gentle shampoo as you normally would. Now, take two palms full of conditioner and apply it from mid-lengths to the ends. Take your fingers and separate each strand and condition it. Blow dry and use a diffuser. You’re READY to get styling!
MAKE SURE THERE IS A DINSTINCTION IN THE LAST TWO METHODS.
