This has been in need of an update for about a year, its crazy. Very criminal of me. At the moment what I use is very basic and this summer I hope to change some things up. But at the moment these products do the job for me.
Everyday I wet my hair to start clean and get the best curls, second day hair never satisfies me and I kind of gave up on it, so most days when I am going out i will re do my hair.
I squeeze a ball sized amount of the KINKY Curly Knot Today, my go to leave in conditioner. It’s not too thick and never weighs down my hair. I also Love the texture. I then simply comb this through my hair using my fingers, and after before applying a curl hold, I brush through my hair with a normal hair brush.
My second go to which can do no wrong but get the job done is the Boots Curl Cream This is so inexpensive it’s saved my life. I don’t use as much of this as i probably should, but two scoops of my finger is usually enough. I rake this through my hair from the top to the bottom and then usually brush my hair to make sure its all in there.
After I have applied all products. (2) I scrunch my hair to create some curls, as my hair can be quite lazy and not even curl!
I then go on to diffuse my hair. I part my hair in 2 sections.. the right and left side and diffuse each for about 5 minutes each, before turning my hair upside down and doing that while also flipping my hair from side to side and diffusing the sides. It takes around 25/30 mins for a good hair dry for me, where I feel satisfied. I am also in dire need of a new diffuser as well because the diffuser bit keeps falling off making the blow drying process all the more annoying!*cries*
Last but not least I simple use my afro comb to give me some volume and shape the hair. You can use fingers which I sometimes do. However the comb is my new best friend!!
This summer I aim to incorporate a oil back in my routine and also change my styling products.
