Hey, y’all! Welcome to this week’s VIP Beauty Tues which is all about the VIP’s hair tools and tricks because I have been receiving lots of fan emails asking me about the secrets and tricks behind my iconic curls.
Taming natural curls can be tricky. Many people who have curls become frustrated with the frizz and just straighten their hair for simplicity…but that is why I am giving away the secret to VIP curls.
It took me a few years to find the perfect products and styling techniques for my hair; however, with these 6 easy steps, you are one spritz of hair spray closer to mastering VIP hair!
Step One: After shampooing and conditioning, lightly dry hair with a towel.
Step Two: Apply Herbal Essences Tousling Mousse throughout the hair being extra generous to the ends of the hair. Extra mousse at the tips will help tame frizz.(For bigger, fuller curls, use the Herbal Essences Curl Boosting Mousse.)
Step Three: Take a towel and gently scrunch the hair. Scrunching with a towel will boost curls without causing frizz…and it will also speed up the drying process for those of us who have thick hair.
Step Four: Pin hair loosely and randomly with clippies. This process allows the curls to “set” while you are putting on your makeup or picking out something to wear.
Step Five: Dry hair on the HOT setting with the diffuser attachment. To add extra volume, flip head over and dry roots with the diffuser.
Step Six: After drying, use the Big Sexy Hair “Spray & Play” hairspray to add some oomph to your curls. To create an effortless look while keeping wild curls in their place, go light with the hairspray. To sculpt big and beautiful curls, be more generous with the hairspray while fluffing at the roots with your fingers or a teasing comb.
