Combing clean, wet hair with a wide tooth comb is the most effective way of removing loose hair that contributes to tangles.
If loose hair is not removed, matting occurs.
Curl Keeper™ distributes easily through wet hair from roots to ends after all tangles are removed.
Switching from a wide-tooth to a fine-tooth comb on detangled wet hair treated with Curl Keeper™ will encourage more defined ringlets.
The material used in the design of a "Bone" Comb will assist in eliminating static and tangles.
Adding the right colour or highlights to finer curly hair will add more texture, body and fullness.
Colour that reflects shine or light will create the illusion of thickness in thin hair.
On fine hair, conditioners should be used at a minimum to avoid adding weight. Avoid the root area and focus on the driest ends only.
Fine hair is very weather sensitive - in winter, indoor heating can loosen curls and straighten hair - in summer, humidity will add fullness, body and bounce to curls.
In all weather conditions, Curl Keeper™ will control frizz.
Fine hair is quite porous (the ability to absorb water) but does not hold it long (it dries fast). This must be taken into account for all chemical processes.
Don't cut it too short. Generally, fine hair shrinks a little, and thick hair shrinks a lot.
Fine curly hair will rarely need the Tunnel Cut.
Shorter styles are better suited to fine wavy hair in the summer as the humidity will help support the curls.
Cowlicks or flat crowns can be trained away by styling and pulling the hair at the roots against the direction that the hair grows.

Sleeping on curly hair - Use a "scrunchy" to hold your hair on top of your head in a loose ponytail as it will allow for more surface area to sleep on. Your curls will still look fresh and full in the morning.
For extra volume, bend forward at the waist letting your hair hang over, move a diffuser up the length of each curl to add bounce and volume while maintaining frizz control.
Wet, healthy hair has the ability to stretch by 40% without breaking. When released hair should return to its original state.

Split ends don't affect curly hair as much as straight hair. The hair doesn't split all the way up the hair shaft.
Frizz caused by humidity can easily be controlled with Curl Keeper™.
With thick, dense hair, it is important to allow the shampoo to work its way down to the root area so it can absorb excess oils on the scalp. Don't forget to rinse well!
When shampooing, remember that the thicker the hair, the longer you need to rinse in order to remove all the shampoo.
When cutting curly hair, remember it shrinks - so don't go too short.

Controlling the pH balance will dramatically improve the condition of curly hair. Healthy hair should have a pH value of 4.5 - 5.5.
Cutting the damaged frizzy ends will give a healthy overall look to the hair.
Cutting long, curly hair doesn't mean a short or layered hairstyle. Every curl should be snipped individually at the tips leaving hair long and healthy.

Correcting the pH balance of the hair can repair hair cuticles. This results in great styles every day.
