CURLY HAIR INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: This post will only be interesting to people with curly hair. Anyone else stop reading now or prepare to be bored out of your scone. I have had a few enquiries lately asking about what hair products I use and how I get my hair so curly. I reckon the secret is putting your "product" (whatever it might be, I use either John Frieda Frizz Ease Curl Boosting Mousse or KMS Curl Up Wave Foam) in your hair when it is SOAKING wet. Keep your hair product in the shower and add it before you even get out. You can squeeze some water out of it with your hands but never towel dry it or you're destined to be a fuzz ball. Towel drying is the enemy of curly hair. Obviously this means it takes ages to dry (you can use a hairdryer with a diffuser but it will still take a while) so it's a bit of a pain but it's the only way I know to get really good curls happening. Also use loads of product. All this business of "use an amount the size of a twenty cent piece". Garbage. On the side of the pack of any product for curly hair, it should say "use heaps". Once your hair is dry and curly, shake it out a bit with your fingers then get some John Frieda Secret Weapon (best product ever) Rub it in your hands and then smooth it all over your curls, specially into the ends. Again, don't be shy with it and don't be gentle, use plenty and go hard. Secret Weapon is also the best thing for "sticking your curls back together" on a bad fuzz day. And by the way, I'm not sponsored by any of the products I mentioned, I certainly have not been paid by John Frieda or KMS (more's the pity). I hope this helps any fellow curly heads and to anyone else, apologies for the boring musing but I did warn you.
