Foam rollers are a super gentle and effective way to reshape curls without using heat. After your hair has set in them, unroll the rods and rake through your coils to separate the texture.
Think of frizz as the structure that holds up your curls, and to encourage that body, you need to fluff the interior of your hair once or twice a day. Shake, scrunch, and lift your hair to get it fuller and bigger. At night, separate your hair along a center part in the back to avoid flattening the volume.
You can't over-hydrate dense, coarse curls. Double up on hydration by applying a leave-in treatmentDavines Love Curl Revitalizer while your hair is dripping wet. The product will absorb into your hair while it dries.
Go in lightly with product and build gradually as you need. Work a small drop into your ends first, and spread the product up toward the scalp. Wherever the product starts to feel like it's sitting on the outside of the hair shaft rather than soaking in, that's where to stop.
Don’t let the harsh elements of the season take a toll on your spirals. Keep these tips in your beauty arsenal and rock those natural curls all summer.
