Tip of the Week for the Curly: Winter Texture

Texture is not a bad thing. Typically we think of letting your curls do their thing in the summer. Why not in the winter too? Texture, curls and even a little fuzziness with winter fabrics scarves  and coats, looks fresh and interesting.

For very curly or kinky hair, wash your hair at night, add Curl Boosting Mousse and Oi Oil and set your hair with your fingers. Twist hair like a ribbon around one finger and let air dry, sleep on it and then shake out and pull curls apart in the morning before you start your day. Let your hair come alive and you be you.
