First, I need help determining my hair type. 2A? 2B? What do you think?
Next, I need help making it look not so stringy. I don't like all the little curls, I'd love to have bigger more defined curls. Here's what I did to get this adorable (
Washed with a little Jessicurl GLS
Condition with Loreal provive conditioner for curly/wavy hair, rinsed it out completely
Spritzed with Aussie Dual Personality spray gel/leave in conditioner while dripping wet. Used a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute (I think this is where I went wrong).
Scrunched with a hand towel to get out excess water.
Scrunched in Garnier Fructis curl shaping spray gel, plopped with a hooded baby towel while I got dressed and bathed the kids (about 20 minutes). I made sure that the non-terry cloth side was against my hair. It's more like a t-shirt instead of a normal towel.
Then I scrunched in Pantene Pro-V curl defining scrunching gel and let it air dry for a couple of hours. Then I bent over from my hips and shook/scrunched out what little crispiness there was.
Any ideas of why it's so stringy and--poofy? Maybe it's the length?
Thanks so much for your help! I *think* I've almost got my routine straigtened out!
