Before, during, after... It's always an honor to be part of such a major hair transformation and I love setting curls free!


I've gotten a lot of requests for my tips on styling curly hair. I'm working on a video until then here's Carinn's curly hair styling how to:

*Shampoo, rinse.

*Add conditioner. While conditioner is in your hair use a pic or wide tooth comb to get out any tangles. Always start at the ends of your hair and work up to your roots.

*Rinse out conditioner and scrunch out excess water with your hands.
*Wrap hair in an old t-shirt and squeeze to help get out more water.

*Get your product on your hands and flip your head over. ( If you've got lots of hair be sure to use extra product) Starting at the ends begin to apply product to your hair by scrunching it in up to your roots. Once most of the product is off of your hands work what's left into your roots.

*After you've saturated your hair with product, with your head still flipped over, use your fingers to comb your roots forward so you can put your hair into a ponytail on top of your head.

*Collect your hair into a ponytail and begin to twist it from the roots to the ends. Hold your ends together and scrunch the ponytail back up to your roots. With a firm grip give your scrunched up ponytail a good squeeze. (this will help push your product thoroughly into your hair and reset your curls)

*Release the ponytail and gently shake your curls loose.

*Flip your head back up and gently move your curls into the style of your choice.

*From here you can air dry your hair or use a dryer. If you air dry and your product gets a little crispy just scrunch your hair to soften it once it's all the way dry.

*When using a blowdryer I like to let my hair air dry a bit before I start drying. Place your curls into the diffuser and gently scrunch and release your hair while slowly move the diffuser throughout your until your hair is dry.

Last step...Embrace your curls, love your hair!

***Always use a diffuser when using a blow dryer for curls.***
