The Curl Chronicles

I stumbled upon and my god, isn't that site just lovely? It's filled with non-annoying beauty posts and even has a whole article dedicated to curly-haired people like me.

Having curly hair has been slightly frustrating due to the lack of products dedicated especially for girls with bouncy hair. I used and loved this underground conditioner by Sunsilk for curly hair which suddenly disappeared and was prolly phased out most likely due to a huge chunk of the shampooing population being obsessed with straight hair.

Anyway, here's The Curl Chronicles post by thebeautydepartment with a section dedicated for wavy hair (aka ME!):

NATURAL WAVE – Keep it simple. Your goal is to hold it together and not break the pattern of the wave by brushing too much.
  • Shampoo and condition as normal, but comb hair out using a wide tooth comb in the shower.
  • Towel dry when you get out of the shower. No more brushing.
  • Shake hair to unlock the wave pattern. Comb with your fingers.
  • Flip hair over and scrunch with the towel again.
  • Apply a lightweight curl enhancing cream from roots to ends. ask your stylist if you aren’t sure what that is.
  • Use a diffuser to dry 50% of the way. Air dry the other 50 %.
  • Use a small amout of argon oil or anti-frizz serum to lock ends together using a twisting motion.
  • If you want to refine this natural wave with a curling iron, try a 1″ or 1 1/4″ barrell, twisting hair around the outside.
