There are many different techniques that can be applied to each curl type. It’s important to note which process will reduce styling and drying time and still give you a gorgeous frizz-free curly hairstyle. After applying our frizz control and curl defining styling product, Curl Keeper™, you can speed up the drying process by using a diffuser on high heat. Using styling accessories such as the Universal Diffuser or Bonnet Hood Dryer will help control frizz and speed up the drying time. Hanging your head over while bending forward will give your curls more volume and bounce. Be sure not to hold the diffuser too close to the curls as this will create frizz. Instead prevent frizzy hair by holding the diffuser at a distance with as little movement as possible. Once the hair is surface dry, you are able to diffuse closer to the root area to soften the curls. After your hair is completely dry, if you have any frizzy areas caused by too much movement or overplaying or drying, simply reactivate Curl Keeper™ by simply running wet hands over frizzy areas.
Many people do not have enough time in the morning to style their hair to perfection. Curly heads know how important it is to be able to style their hair when short of time. Styling curly hair is the first critical preparation stage on which to achieve your desired curly hairstyle. Spending a few extra minutes in this stage will ensure your look will last longer. Using high heated appliances such as curling irons or hot rollers to create your curls, you will notice more frizz, especially in humidity and when perspiring. Achieving your curls through the styling and drying process from wet to dry you will have more control over the frizz in all weather conditions and activity.
Styling products for curly hair that contain alcohol or oils may help speed up drying time but comes with the cost of damaging the hair. The use of alcohol in curly hair products will dry out the hair and strip away necessary moisture. Products that contain oil will create a cosmetic coating on the hair which will eventually make your curls unmanageable.
