The mercury is rising, which means the humidity is too, so that blowout you’ve been rocking during these winter months is about to revert back to its’ curly form. During New York Fashion Week this past February, curly hair models sported a halo of curls that were finger-combed and lightly spritzed with Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist ($10.99, at drugstores).
To get the look, mist clean hair with Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist and gently finger comb curls to distribute product. Diffuse strands to add lightness to curls and finish by blasting curls with a quick burst of cold air using the ‘cool’ option on your blow dryer. Complete the look by lightly pulling curls apart to add body and movement and tease the root with your fingers.
If you have tighter curls, consider hydrating your hair with Shea Moisture Baobab Tea Tree Oils Low Porosity Protein-Free Leave-In Detangler and following with their Curl & Style Milk. For defined curls, opt for a straw or flexi rod set and sit under the drier to set the curls. Once dry, pull a few curls apart to create the illusion of lightness and mist with a coconut oil or a natural shine spray.
We love this look because it’s effortless and doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. And, it’s perfect for the warmer months when product-heavy hair is just too much to deal with.
