Unique ways to curl

OK so above are the basics that will get you by, and afford you with luscious curly locks. But hold your horses, there are more methods that can substitute or entirely replace the tried n tested ways.

Pineapple method: Before bed, gather your curls on top of your head and secure them with a hair tie or scrunchie. This helps preserve your curls overnight and reduces morning frizz.

Sock diffuser: If you don't have a hair diffuser, you can use a clean, stretchy sock as a substitute. Simply pull the sock over the nozzle of your hair dryer and blow dry as usual.

Pre-poo: Before blow drying, try applying a pre-poo treatment to your hair, such as coconut oil or castor oil. This can help protect your curls from the heat and add moisture to your hair.

Microfiber towels: Instead of a regular towel, try using a microfiber towel to dry your hair. Microfiber is gentler on your curls and helps absorb moisture more effectively, reducing frizz.

Cool blast: After blow drying, finish with a cool blast of air to help set your curls and add shine. 

By following these simple steps, you can enjoy bouncy and defined curls with a curly blow dry. Give it a try and see the difference it can make in your hair!
