Sleep on a silk pillowcase, wear your hair in a pineapple, release in the morning, fluff and DONE! Wallah! If only this were the case, I know. To be honest though, once you get a routine down, “fluff and done” won't be far off.
So, let's get started with your routine.
It's your day off, time for you to chill at home, get some errands done and pamper yourself. Today is wash day. Wash day is also extra moisture day. If we are going to take everything out, best believe we are about to put double back in!
Use your shampoo 2x minimum -really scrub your scalp all over using the pads of your finger tips. Be careful not to bunch or scrub the curls together while washing (this will cause tangling and knots).
Mask -time to put the double back in, apply your OH CURL cream
Detangle -while cream is in gently detangle hair with fingers, comb or brush
Let sit -clip up and wrap in a shower cap or plastic bag, leave for another 5-10 minutes minimum
Rinse - lightly rinse leaving a bit in, while making sure there is none left on the scalp
Cream -apply the desired extra amount to your ends for styling purposes
Get out- clip up or tie in a loose bun on top of your head
Gently place your cotton t-shirt or microfiber towel on your head and loosely wrap
Let your hair down
Decide if you'd like to scrunch, twist, or comb and leave be
Decide if you need extra hold -if yes, apply your gel, mousse, or glaze
Then air dry or diffuse
This should at the very least last you 2-3 days.
Be patient. Remember, practice makes perfect!
