How to Style Curly Hair

Start with Clean and Conditioned Hair


Wash your hair with curly hair shampoo and conditioner. Great styling starts with well-hydrated hair.

Apply a Leave-In Conditioner 


Apply a leave-in conditioner to damp hair after washing to boost curls. Spread the product using fingers or a wide-toothed comb. 

Define Your Curls 


For definition, lightly scrunch moist curls. To increase curls, twist little portions of hair around your fingers. 

Diffuse or Air Dry 


Air-dry your curls or use a diffuser attachment on low heat. Use a diffuser or let your hair dry naturally. 

Avoid Over-Brushing 


After drying, brush your curls less. This prevents frizz and keeps curls. Use a wide-toothed comb or your fingers to detangle. 

Enhance with Styling Products 


To define and maintain your curls, use a curl-enhancing product like gel or mousse. Scrunch your hair as you work the product through it for curls that last all day. 

Pineapple Technique for Overnight 


Pineapple your curls overnight. Secure your hair with a satin or silk scrunchie. This lowers frizz and curl form. 

Refresh Your Curls 


On non-wash days, refresh curls with water or a curl refresher spray. Scrunch your hair to revitalize curls and bounce.
