I have recently used a great home remedy. It may sound silly but it worked. I read in a book to use olive oil. I tried it and added a little honey to it, left it in for approx. 15 min, then rinsed really well. After, you do not need to add a definer or anything. Just scrunch with your fingers. Now it does leave your hair a little greasy but if you add a bit of your fave shampoo it works like a charm. My curls have never looked so great. It's much cheaper and very helpful! Try it. I did and i loved it. Caution: Do not use this conditioning treatment more than 1 every two weeks. You don't need to use it more than that. It will keep your curls wonderful up to the next week or so, even through washes.
