Step 1: Strong Hold Gel
On freshly washed hair, apply your favorite strong hold styling product. We’re in love with this strong hold gel from Tracee Ellis Ross’s Pattern. Section your hair, and apply liberally across the curls. Now here is the most important step: let the gel dry, creating a hard cast. Do not touch the curls while they dry. This helps maintain the ultimate shape.
Step 2: Massage the Curls
Once dry, it’s time to break the curl cast. Gently massage the curls to get that touchable bounce, scrunching as you go to maintain the shape. Refrain from finger combing the curls – you want to maintain that multidimensional definition. Massaging the curls keeps that bounce while removing the crunch of a strong hold gel.
Step 3: Shine Spray to Finish
Once you’ve massaged out your curls, add a spritz of shine spray to highlight your glossy 3D coils. It’s a 10 Miracle Shine Spray is a great go-to for finishing touches!
