What product do you recommend to hold natural curls?
I have quite long hair that I mostly straighten. In the heat we've had iv washed it and left it to dry and the curls have been curler than they used to. Iv just scrunched mouse in but of course leaves it a bit crunchy. What product can I scrunch in WET hair, leave to dry? Leave with defined curls? Also I curl it with ghds when going out, what can I use to hold the curl after that? The same product would be fab with an oncoming holiday
I swear by Moroccan Oil Curl Cream, it comes in a large pump-action tube but you can buy a travel sized tube online. Use it sparingly on wet hair, leave to dry naturally or with a diffuser on low heat. It's light and non-crunchy nor greasy.
Aveda Curl Cream works best for my naturally curly frizz prone hair. I have to put it on wet hair, rather than damp - something about the water weight seems to make the curls smoother and more defined?
All you have to do if your hair is crunchy is just flip your head upside down and scrunch out the crunch - best to do when hair it dry. You only need a little bit of the curl creme, it really does go along way.
Setting lotion, like old ladies use. I have some of the pink Stay Set from Boots, it's about £3. I mix it with water in a spray bottle and spritz my hair with it, it keeps my hair soft and not crispy at all.
