Volumizing Thin & Curly Hair Tutorial
Hi everyone, This is a very simple way that I add more volume to my hair after washing it. I first use the diffuser to style my hair, and I finish by adding more volume this way. For reference, I have thin, type 3A curls. I apologize for the weird transition in the beginning, it took me a while to remove the diffuser off the hair dryer, so I decided to cut that part out 😅 In the end, I use aussie - Sun Touched Shine Hairspray, which I reviewed in a previous post! I’ll also be adding more thorough tips on how to deal with thin hair, so stay tuned! Hope you enjoy!

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!

Influencer Curly Hair Secrets You NEED to Know
I want to share a few “secrets” as a curly hair influencer on Instagram. Without further ado, here we go: 1. Our hair isn’t always picture-ready! A lot of the curly influencers on IG (myself included) wear our curls up in a messy bun or under a hat just as much as you, I promise! Sure there are stretches of days and weeks where my curls look really nice, but most of the time I’m doing whatever I can to get my hair out of my face (so I can work/clean/workout etc). Don’t let the “perfect” IG feeds make you feel like you have to compete - we aren’t together all the time either. 2. Lighting makes a HUGE difference in how your curls look in photos. With a ring light my curls look commercial/ad-ready. Not sure what it is specifically about that particular light but it makes a HUGE difference. Going from room to room (taking the same picture from the same angle) will make your curls look dramatically different depending on the lighting. Ring light vs. natural light - in front of a window, for example - and dim lighting can make my curls look incredible vs. just okay. I’m talking from looking near frizz-free and shiny to dull and flat. Try it for yourself! 3. We really are passionate about teaching other women to embrace their curls. I’ve been on zoom meetings with some of the other curl ladies and we do genuinely LOVE our curly hair and sharing everything we can with you. We can literally talk about it for hoooours. Oddly enough many of the us have healthcare or education backgrounds, we truly are here to help! That being said, keep in mind that most of the time being a “curl enthusiast/influencer” isn’t our full-time job. Please be patient when you’re waiting for a response from us - we do everything we can to answer as many questions as possible. 4. I wish I could tell you about a miracle product (but most often the secret is simply TIME). If you’ve started your curl journey, you likely already know it takes a lot of trial and error to figure out the best combination of products, the best application methods, the right way to refresh your curls, etc. Unfortunately, the truth is this - if you somehow managed to discover all of those things in week 1 of wearing your hair curly, you’d still have to wait months or years for true change. It’s likely you’ve been straightening your hair to death for the last several years and it’s going to take time for your hair to grow out and be healthy. Just stick with it, realize it’s a marathon and not a sprint, and get ready to be amazed at your transformation. 5. Enjoy the ride! I have a hard time putting into words exactly how embracing my curls has changed me. Loving my curls has given me a confidence boost greater than anything I’ve ever experienced. There were times of frustration, times of helplessness, and times I was ready to give up. The journey is what makes this so special. Take lots of of pictures to document your progress!

Herbal Essences-Bio:Renew Honey & Vitamin B Moisture Shampoo
🌴 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 ✨
