Favorite styling techniques and why: I am still experimenting with clipping - it helps but I still have a flat head by the end of the day. Plopping has helped my curls form. Pixie curl diffusing is good. Stopping brushing my hair has been HUGE!
Techniques that didnít work and why: Not sure if the pineapple technique at night works, but I am trying it.
