I wanted to share a beauty trick for curly hair, I find that towel drying after the shower makes it frizzy and tangled. You might have heard that you’re not supposed to rub your hair in a towel because it creates friction and can lead to split ends. I read that a cotton t-shirt will help de-frizz your hair and keep it healthy. This works well for my curly-haired sisters especially because it gently dries your hair without messing with the natural curl pattern. So copied it just for you. Here’s how to do it:
1.) Squeeze: When you finish your shower, squeeze your curls gently with a cotton tee (the thicker the more absorbent). Move along in sections, from your scalp to the ends of your hair. I would dry each section of your hair only once, since doing it more than that can cause you to lose volume.
2.) Wrap: Flip your head over and use the t-shirt like you would normally use a towel to turban-wrap your hair. An easy way is to place the bottom of the t-shirt at the nape of your neck, and slowly twist up until you reach the end. Then, just tuck the end underneath the part that’s framing your face!
3.) Wait: This step varies for each person – some people wait 5 minutes and some keep it on for up to 15. It just depends on your hair. However long you would normally keep a towel around your head will work for a t-shirt too.
4.) Style: Gently unwrap the t-shirt turban and style as you would normally. If you have any leave-in conditioners or oils, now is the time to use them.
Depending on your hair type, you might be able to skip steps 2 and 3 – some ladies just need the t-shirt to soak up the moisture and don’t need to wrap their hair at all. Just experiment and you’ll find the right solution!
Good luck curly hair sisters!!!
