You Will Need
- A towel
- Protective heat serum
- A wide-tooth comb
- Styling gel
- Styling cream
- And a blow-dryer with a diffuser
Blot hair dry
Gently blot your hair dry on a towel. Never rub it back and forth—this will destroy the curl and set you on the path to frizz.
Apply a little heat-protective serum to your hair, concentrating on the ends.
Apply styling gel
Apply a bit of styling gel to the roots of your hair and work a little styling cream from the middle of the strands to the ends with a wide-tooth comb.
Taking a few locks of hair at once, twist small sections from the root to the end, creating a series of smooth, twirled locks. Let them fall naturally.
Attach the diffuser to your blow-dryer and turn it on at a medium heat and a low speed.
Dry in sections
Tilt your head and gently lift a section of hair against the diffuser. When it is nearly dry, move on to another section.
Dry hair upside down
If you want a little extra volume, bend over and dry your hair upside down for a moment, gently massaging your scalp in small circles.
Check out those curls
Stand up, flip your hair back, and check out your tousled tresses. You can look, but don't touch!
