April 13, 2015 9:00 am

If you’re lucky enough to have natural curls, then step away from those straighteners and show them off! By using the right products you can tame even the frizziest, unruliest of curls and create beautiful, bouncing ringlets. This step-by-step will show you a quick and easy way to style and dry curls, with product recommendations thrown in too!

STEP 1:

Prepare hair with Curls & Waves Shampoo and Conditioner to moisturise, and help restore shine. Make sure you rinse your hair thoroughly after conditioning, as any residue left on the hair can drag your curls down. Dispense a small amount of Curls & Waves Light Hold, or Firm Hold Curl Cream into your palm (roughly the size of a 50p piece) – it is always best to use less product, as you can always add more if you need it.

Step 2:

Scrunch the Curl Cream into your hair, ensuring it is applied evenly throughout the hair. Separate and define the curls by twisting sections and winding them around your finger. Do not use a brush to try and define your curls, as this will cause them to frizz.

Step 3:

Attach a diffuser to your hair dryer, and set it to the lowest heat and speed setting available. Place sections of hair into the diffuser and gently dry them. (Alternatively you can skip this step if you want to leave your curls to dry naturally).

Step 4:

Once your hair is dry, gently use your fingers to separate and define the curls. The Curl Cream will hold your style in place, however at this stage you could also use further products for a different finish or texture. Try High Shine Glosser for a healthy sheen, or Salt Texture Spray for a tousled, matt style.
