Those with naturally curly hair understand how much different your hair can look each time you wash it. There are SO many factors that affect how your wash day turns out. Today I'm sharing 4 product application techniques, how to style curly hair, and the differences in there results from each method.

How to Apply Curly Hair Products

Super Defined Curls: This style is the longest lasting of the 4, has the most hold, and no frizz. Using a gel is ideal for that gel cast, but you can also achieve this look with mousse. This method oftentimes doesn't give much volume, but can be fluffed out. Shrinkage is also more common with tighter curl results. It's ideal for those who live in humid climates and struggle with frizz.
  • Section off hair and apply products evenly to each strand.
  • Brush product through with the Denman Brush for maximum definition
  • Finger coil individual curls

Volume + Definition: Sounds impossible right?! This routine uses a cream first, topped with a gel on the outer later of hair, allowing for some frizz to form on the inside layer to add volume. Curls are softer, chunkier, and still defined in some areas. Click here for the full routine using DevaCurl.
  • Apply a cream to wet hair upside down. Rake product through from root to ends.
  • Brush upside down to smooth down frizz
  • Apply a gel overtop, focusing on the outside layers

Volume + Length: Ever heard of the praying hands method? This gives volume while stretching the curls to prevent shrinkage. Similar to the previous method, less product is applied to the inside layer, allowing for some frizz for volume. I used mousse here, but this method could be done with any product type.
  • Apply product to your hands, and smooth hair between your palms to reduce frizz. 
  • Scrunch with your hands or cotton towel

Quick & Easy: If you prefer a quicker routine, this method is simple and easy to achieve. Results will vary depending on your hair type and the product type. For me, I typically get some definition but not as much volume or shrinkage.
  • Rake product through your hair while smoothing frizz
  • Scrunch with product on your hands or with a cotton towel
