It’s crazy to me that in the past like… four months, I’ve only straightened my hair once! I’ve really been embracing the curly lately. Although, it can be a little bit of a pain to keep them tame without the right products. There is a very fine line between tousled curls and a messy frizz fest, am I right?
Straight out of the shower, my hair dries halfway curly, and the other half in big waves. For a more controlled, uniform look, I’ve been using the affordable Fat Curls collection to help create, define, and hold my curls.
After washing my hair, I brush through the tangles and apply the Curl Reactivating Spray. It has macadamia oil to help moisturize and protect the hair, prepping it for the hair dryer. After spritzing evenly around my head, I’ll scrunch my hair to get some volume and wave going on.
Next, I use the Curl Creating Mousse to start shaping my curls. I apply a little into my palms, then swirl my hair around my finger in the direction I want the curl to go. I focus on the top layers of my hair, where the curls tend to be naturally loose. The mousse is thin and gives a light hold, but your hair might feel a tad crunchy if you use too much, so less is more!
I’ve learned that the best way to dry curly hair is by attaching a diffuser to my blow dryer. It helps the heat disperse evenly and keep the curl intact without kicking up frizz.
If I need a little extra hold, I’ll scrunch a dime sized amount of the Curl Defining Gel into my hair to finish the look.
The trio leaves my curls looking polished with less frizz than when I let them dry naturally. If they start to fall or flatten throughout the week, I use the Reactivating Spray to help get them going again.
Fat Curls products are available in select drugstores and online for $7-$10 each.
