Oh boy folks. This was a test of trial and error. Look at that 2nd pic! That was my hair a few days ago. This is what I was doing WRONG for frizziness 😅
Washing my hair and then brushing conditioner in it from my crown down.

😌this blessed my 2C-3A curls
So not gonna lie, I just started trying the curly girl hair method like... yesterday. 🌺 The curly hair method is a way of taking care of your curls to bring out their best. A lot of products and advice in media are for straight hair. This means a lot of curlies accidentally flatten their curls or have trouble managing frizziness. There’s also a Scale ranging from 2A (wavier) to 4C (coily) to measure how curly your hair is. Finally, knowing your porosity, or how easily your hair absorbs moisture, is also helpful. The curly method involves a lot of different tips, but one of the most important parts of it is: 🌸 ‘Washing’ your hair with ONLY conditioner. And if you do wash it, make it sulfate-free. SheaMoisture - Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Conditioner is a Sulfate-free conditioner formulated for: 🌟 4A-4C Hair 🌟 Low Porosity 🌟 Rinsing Out But I found out it was catered to that AFTER learning I was a 2C-3A. Can you say 🤡 STILL, I’ve gone through 2 bottles of this already! AND I did a water test to see where my hair porosity was. You put your hair in a water, and if it stays at the top (like mine did), it’s low porosity. So that explains why this product worked so well on me! Below, I’ll break down my notes on why I love this product: 💜 It REALLY boosts my curls. On a sad day, my hair looks more wavy and S-shaped. But when I apply this conditioner, I can see my shorter layers spring up in big, romantic curls. 💜A little goes a long way. A dime-sized amount will do for shoulder-length to short hair. 💜 It’s relatively affordable. This bottle is 19.5 oz, and retails for ~$10. For the quality of the product, it’s worth getting over $20 salon brand conditioners 💜 It’s available at many retailers. I got mine at Bed Bath and Beyond, but Walgreens and Target also sell it. Although I do admit I haven’t tried a lot of curly hair suggestions yet... Here, I’ll explain how I’ve used this product~ And what I’m going to try next. 🧡 I wash my hair every other day, and use conditioner when I’m out of the shower. This makes it easier to brush it into my curls so they don’t get puffy. BUT I have been brushing from the roots down. They say that gives you a frizz halo so I’m going to try brushing from the bottom out now. 🧡 I left the conditioner in my hair overnight. And then is important: Go to bed with your hair wet! When your hair dries standing up, gravity pulls it down. When it dries while you’re laying down, it helps the curls form with less resistance. The conditioner said it’s rinse out, but I have had no problems leaving it in so far. 🧡 I don’t use any other products after conditioner. Sometimes I spritzDevaCurl - MIST-ER RIGHT Dream Curl Refresherto ease frizz, and that does the job. Buuuuuut I’m still learning. In all, I REALLY recommend this for replenishing curls overnight. Do you have any suggestions for newcomers to the curly hair method?

🌴 picking the right gel for curly hair
I have low-porosity, medium textured, 2C-3A curls. At first, I tried the Herbal Essences - Totally Twisted Curl-Boosting Mousse with Berry Essences mousse to style my hair. It made my hair shiny, bouncy, and feel light. But the downside to mousse is it’s harder to define your curl shape with it. Enter gel. I tried the Ouidad - Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel , a popular product from Curly Hair reddit, and followed these directions to try it: condition your hair in the shower, then rinse. when you’re out, use “prayer hands” to run a golf-ball sized amount through your hair. let it dry COMPLETELY, then scrunch out the gel cast on your hair. You’re left with bouncy, shapely, and voluminous curls like shown above! And something I noticed later is that I got ringlets 🍥 in some hair layers. It’s been a while since I got my ringlets back man 😭 I tried the travel size of this product, and I’m loving it so far. The scent is gentle and fresh, the texture is runny (not heavy), and the hair cast it forms is easy to soften. The only downside is that it’s $26 for 8.5 oz. And they recommend using a golfball sized amount, which is a lot... I used maybe 2 clementine slices amount and that almooost got my whole head, but not quite. Some people recommend the LA LOOKS - Extreme Sport Styling Gel, which is $3.79 for 20.0 oz. But note that it has Keratin & Soy protein. Lowpo hair tends to already have a lot of keratin, so adding more can make it brittle. Which brings me to some general tips for picking a gel: 🌺For Lowpo hair, avoid high protein ones. The Ouidad one has some protein, too, but it’s lower on the ingredients list. 🌺Avoid gels with alcohol, sulfates, parabens or silicones. The first 3 ingredients can dry out your hair, causing them to get more frizzy. Meanwhile, silicones are known to build up over time and weigh down hair. 🌺 If you have fine hair, be selective about the oils in it. Jojoba oil is one of the best to nourish fine hair without weighing it down. Medium hair can get a protein boost from coconut oil. Coarse hair can benefit from vitamin rich avocado oil. 🌺 Get travel sizes and go for trial and error. Hair isn’t an exact science. And sometimes, we have one part of our hair that’s more heat damaged or thin than the other. These tips are a guide to help you start, but you might find something different works for you, and that’s okay. Still, if you have my hair type and want to try a gel, I recommend this one! I’ve also heard good things about the Kinky-Curly - Original Curling Custard, Natural Styling Geland theaussie - Instant Freeze Hair with Jojoba Oil & Sea Kelp Gel. So I’ll probably give those a shot next ✨

Help!?! Fine/Wavy/Curly girl
I was born with like zero hair, it grew in hell’s patchy and bright orange ( ginger reject right here!) But it was super thin for most of my life. My pony tails were like the diameter of a dime. But I started cutting my hair really short in middle school and that helped a lot, though the strands are still thin, I have a lot of fine hair. But I always straightened my hair once I was older cause waves and stuff weren’t cool, nor was red hair, so I was a big fan of the dye and bleach as well. So now I seem to be left when a head of hair that A) is drier than the high heavens but doesn’t want to take in moisture properly without weighing it down, or making it never dry without heat. B) the top section appears to be more 2a, the mid more 2b-2c and underneath at the nape I can get tight ringleader curls? Where’s there uniformity? C) I have tried to do the curly girl method and that’s caused a lot of issues with my scalp and skin, and a lot of the heavy butters and oils are too much for my hair and just weigh it down. This leaves me wondering how to proceed. This I have used and like.

Dealing with curly, thick, dry hair...
Dealing with curly, thick, dry hair...
Hi friends! I have had thick, curly, dry hair for my whole life. Bleaching it definitely added to the dryness and frizziness! Because my hair is so dry, I NEVER use hot tools on it, nor do I ever blow dry. Air drying is key for this hair type—especially if you have a wall of dense, thick hair like me! When air drying, first I’ll let my hair chill after the shower for about an hour (towel drying is NOT a thing with thick hair lmaooo) so my roots are less damp but my ends are still soaked. Then, I’ll take a quarter sized amount of a curl styling cream (today I’m using the Briogeo - Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Avocado Leave–In Defining Cream — it is so good for my curls and inexpensive) and finger comb it through my hair. This prevents tangles and knots from forming. Then, to make sure the product is evenly dispersed i will wet my hands with water and finger comb back through. To keep my hair out of my face while it’s air drying, I’ll usually clip or pin it back with bobby pins. 24 hours later through the humidity my hair is less frizzy than it should be, but the leave in curl cream is still in there so you can refresh your curls by finger combing again with wet hands! This cream lets me have my hair styled like this for the whole week before I wash again! What’s your main tip for thick, frizzy, curly hair?

OVERNIGHT BEACH WAVE TUTORIAL 🌊
OVERNIGHT BEACH WAVE TUTORIAL 🌊
I love this beach wave hairstyle! It is my go to style for a party or event. It is easy to do and doesn’t need any heat styling tools so you can have gorgeous waves without any heat damage. My hair in the photo is very thick and has a deep wavy texture. To achieve this look I used: ⭐️ Miss Jessie's - Curly Meringue This is a great product for wavy and curly hair. It conditions my hair and makes it easier to comb through. It also adds shine and removes any frizz. It helps any styles on my curly/wavy hair last longer. For this style I either use this product or Miss Jessie's - Pillow Soft Curls which essentially does the same thing but even better! ⭐️ jane carter solution - Shine on Curl Elixer is a hair oil that contains Aloe Vera, Argan oil and Macadamia oil. It adds shine to my hair and it also protects my hair from heat damage when I am styling with heat tools. This is great for people with dry curly hair. It will condition your hair and make it easier to brush out. ⭐️ Spray Bottle ⭐️ Wide Tooth Comb or Hair Brush ⭐️ 2 Hair ties Step by Step: 1. Fill your spray bottle up half way with water. Add a scoop of your hair cream and a little hair oil. Shake the bottle to combine. 2. Spray mixture into hair until damp (DO NOT SATURATE HAIR WITH MIXTURE)! 3. Use a wide tooth comb or brush to remove any knots from hair. I like to start from the ends 4. Part hair down the middle into 2 sections. 5. Flat twist hair outward, away from face. 6. Take twist and wrap in a bun 7. Repeat on other side 8. Let hair dry overnight and undo twist to reveal beach waves! #CherieCreator

How I “Plop”/Air Dry My Wavy/Curly Hair w/ pics!
Do you have naturally curly or wavy hair? What about cults/waves that you've been taming with heat tools for years? Want to improve your curl/wave pattern over time? This is for you! About my hair: thick, long, some layers, curly/wavy,dry What you'll need: •100% cotton t-shirt •Leave-in conditioner •Curl cream, gel, mousse, etc (whatever you prefer) •Patience, because this takes a while! I've included a numbered pictorial so you can follow along, but please note that each numerical label isn't necessarily its own step. Some are just additional angles. This method is part of the “curl girl” method and is called “plopping ". "Plopping" with cotton gently removes moisture while reducing frizz and helping natural patterns look more defined. Steps: 1. Start with freshly washed hair. Squeeze your hair with your towel a few times until it's no longer dripping wet. No more towel after this. 2. Scrunch hair with your cotton t-shirt for about 15-20 seconds. 3. Use your fingers to apply a leave-in conditioner, or if your leave-in is a spray, just spray it and finger comb through. 4. Scrunch hair with t-shirt again. Your hair should no longer be super wet. 5. Apply your preferred curl or wave product and make sure to disperse throughout your hair starting with your ends. 6. Use your hands to scrunch. Flip head upside down and continue to scrunch. 7. Lay your t-shirt on a flat, clean surface (I use my bed). The neck should face towards you. 8. Gather all of your hair with your head up aside down as if making a ponytail and place in the center of the t-shirt. 9. Fold the bottom portion of the t-shirt onto itself, then take that folded section up over your hair towards your neck. Your forehead should be touching the neck of the t-shirt. 10. Use 1 hand to hold the shirt in place while taking each sleeve and tying them together. You will need to switch your hands during this step. The tie should sit low on your head. 11. Leave hair in shirt 20-30 min (depending on hair thickness). 12. Take hair out of shirt, flip over, part with fingers or comb (if desired, but don't comb anything else!!), and air dry. My hair takes about 3-4 hours to fully dry post-"plop". If you want to use a hair oil, use it before wrapping your hair. Products I used: KRISTIN ESS - Ultra Hydrating Curl Leave-In Cream and IGK - Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel . There are good YouTube videos out there to learn more if you are wanting to learn more about this method!

Re-Lifting Curls Hairstyle!
Re-Lifting Curls Hairstyle!
Hi everyone, This is my first time doing a video like this, so I apologize if it’s not the greatest editing or quality, but I do hope that you’re able to enjoy! This is how I retouch or re-lift my hair whenever I’m going out! For reference, I have type 3A curls and thin hair. Also, I last washed my hair on Sunday and recorded this video on Tuesday, so you can see that curls can remain intact as long as you know how to take care of them. Notice how I barely have any tangles also and how important it is to COMB with your fingers whenever you’re doing this, especially on the underneath part of your hair, where most of the tangling occurs. I will provide more tips on how to avoid getting your hair tangled or full of knots in the near future, so stay tuned! You will also notice how I didn’t add any WATER AT ALL. I use Carol's Daughter - Hair Milk Nourishing and Conditioning Refresher Spray instead. While I understand that it tends to be easier to just soak your hair in water, it is NOT HEALTHY to do that EVERY DAY. Why? First, depending on where you live, the chemicals (whether it’s Magnesium, Chloride, Fluoride, etc) that are added to your potable water VARIES and can definitely be damaging and lead to over drying your hair. For us curly hair people, this is not what we want, as our hair already TENDS to be more DRY NATURALLY. Ever since I’ve reduced the amount of water that I add to my hair, I’ve seen a great difference! Remember, adding moisture is the key, not the other way around. I’ve already provided a review for the other products that I use in this video, even the hair dryer that I use, so make sure to check out my previous posts if you’re interested! I’m certain that they’ll provide more information that help you in your hair care journey. I’ll list them once again: Carol's Daughter - Hair Milk 4-in-1 ''Combing'' Crème aussie - Sun Touched Shine Hairspray CONAIR - InfinitiPRO 1875 Watt AC Pro Hair Dryer Rose Gold

In fact, it is very easy to get wavy hair at home! First of all, you need to prepare the following things: a comb, hair fluffy spray, curling iron, straight hair comb, and a hair dryer. The first step you need to do is to wash your hair, blow it to 70-80% dry with a hair dryer, and apply hair oil. The second step is to power on the curling iron. I use Lena and riwa from Germany. One is a 32mm large curl and the other is a 28mm curl. The third step is to determine whether you want large or small curls. Put a small amount of hair into the curling iron, and choose the style you want, such as: wavy, curly and so on. Step 4: If you have thick hair, you can tie up hair with bands and divide them into several equal parts. step 5: Done! Go on a date! I highly recommend lena-s7 straight roll dual-purpose splint. I used to try their curling iron. After dyeing my hair, I wanted to get a straight hair splint again. Then I saw this dual-purpose splint, and the I fell in love with it. It is equipped with anti scald roll cover, so you don't need to worry about heat damage at all. It also send me a bottle of hair oil. My friend also tried it and they felt that they could easily straighten up before applying a little gel or spray. I hope that everyone can make their own hairstyles in the shortest time at home.
