: Does the rake and shake technique work for 3c hair?
If you haven't read my other post yet, I'm greatly struggling with fighting frizz and finding a way to define my curls. The other day I cam across the Ouidad "Rake and Shake" technique (you can find the video demonstration on the Ouidad website or on youtube). They demonstrated the technique on someone with 3a hair or something like that, but it made me wonder if the technique works for those with tighter curls (3c and up)?
Please tell me your experience trying it? I would also like to know your recommendations for good products (specifically leave-in conditioners) or techniques to help define curls.
Here's the link for the Ouidad videos including the rake and shake technique:
