The best way to dry wet curly/wavy/curly natural hair is mostly to air dry. One tip is to use a butterfly clip to lift your hair at the root. I usually suggest three clips, two in the front where you usually part your hair and one in the back to hold the hair up. This is to ensure that the curl doesn’t fall out as your hair dries and to keep volume at the root.
2 important steps to take:
- After washing, wrap your hair in another towel remove excess water.
- After lying in a towel for a while until it is not dripping wet, you must apply a curling cream or a curling mousse. You want to use a product that will enhance your curl but also reduce frizz. Keeping frizz under control is very important when it comes to curly hair. Once it has been mugged, it is difficult to remove the mug.
The most important thing to remember when it comes to curly hair is less is more. It is difficult to blow dry curly hair. You don’t want to blow your hair around as this will create frizz. If you are going to use a blow dryer, you will want to use a diffuser on your dryer. When blow-drying, it is best to tilt the head upside down. This will create volume at the root and prevent curls from straightening out. Try your best to hold the hair in one place as it dries, scrunch your hair in small sections in your hands and hold the diffuser over that section. When hair is dry, scrunch in a serum or oil and finish with a light hairspray to hold.
