This post is about a quick and easy hairstyle for those with Curly Hair.
I’m participating in Hair Week with Cheri at I am Momma Hear Me Roar! Cheri is a funny Mom who blogs about crafts, sewing and all kinds of stuff. Her blog is a great resource for inexpensive decorating tips, cute stuff for kids and gift ideas.
Ok, onto this style:
Begin with clean (shampooed and conditioned) WET hair.
Apply a leave-in conditioner throughout. (I prefer creamy based like Giovanni brand at Target)
Apply your favorite styling product.
I use gentle gels that won’t make my hair hard & crunchy. A popular brand is Kinky-Curly but it can be expensive. A styling mousse would work too. Eh, just use what you like, I’m currently using Ecostyler brand gel from my local Beauty supply store.
When applying I grab about a tablespoonful and finger comb it thru my hair in sections. This helps ‘clump’ my hairs together.
After all the gel is in, I shake my hair around (warning: it does splitter splatter on the mirror) but it helps with volume.
This is what it looks like gel combed throughout (sometimes I use a Denman brush)
(I tried taking a serious pic, it just came out like a mugshot, so you gots to deal with the cheeeese grin).
Now after a quick run to Target, come home and take a picture, (well 18 pics until you get one you kinda sorta like, then chop off 20%.)
Thanks for asking me to participate in Hairweek Cheri.
FYI - It took me about 3 months to find a good rhythm and product mix with my hair but I luv it.
