Today we are talking about how to wear your hair naturally curly. The best thing to do when you wear your hair naturally curly is to have a lot of time on your hands, especially if you have a lot of hair, because when you apply your product, you need to apply it a section at a time. Do not just take it and rub it in like that. You need to get it from the root to the end and comb it through thoroughly. Allow your curl to set. Don't manipulate your curls while they are drying. Allow them to dry, use a diffuser, or you can even go under a dryer, but don't manipulate your curls while they are drying. After they dry, you can finger them, or you can pull them apart and style them the way you want; but the worst thing you can do is manipulate them while they are drying, because that will cause them to become fuzzy and frizzy and dry looking. So keep your hair moisturized, apply your product from root to end in small sections, and don't manipulate it while it's drying.
