Today I will feature a fellow Curly Artist and friend, Beth Burrall. I met her at the CHA Symposium in October and I just love her! She has amazing insight and instinct when it comes to curls, so I wanted to share her with you.
Below is a quick tip she posted about achieving 2nd and 3rd day hair.
Okay everyone! Another weekly tip coming your way:) As we head into the holidays, we will be gearing up for seeing friends,relatives, and yes-cameras! So let's talk styling!
This week is a little different because I have been experimenting and will be sharing with you what I have found.
Everyone is always asking about 2nd and 3rd day hair. Ideally, we would all love to go multiple days with out fussing with our curls, and some find their curls actually do better the longer they go without cleansing(not to be confused with shampooing!)
What I have found, is that the more product you use to set your curls the first day, the less frizz, but also the less curl. In some cases, the curls will become tighter over the course of the next few days. Now if you are going for a more elongated curl this is great. But if you are looking for more bounce and volume, you may need to use less product.
The trade off to using less product and achieving more volume is that you may experience more frizz. You also may find you aren't able to get as many days out of your set as you can with a heavier product application.
So, as the holidays approach, I encourage all of you to experiment and see what your hair is needing the most. Does it need to be washed, or does it look great and doesn't need anything? Does it need product or moisture? Curls are always highly opinionated and they will let you know, now all you have to do is listen!
