LOL that is exactly how I felt when I watched this vid... I couldn't sleep, I wanted that hair! As far as the flipping goes, I am very gentle with it especially before the curls are "set". Once I feel that the gel is forming a cast I go ahead and ruffle my roots a bit. This is the part that takes forever to dry and if I don't flip my hair just droops. But for the most part if the diffuser is touching my hair, I leave it in for a few seconds pretty much the same as pixie diffusing. I don't rake or tousle my hair when applying products. I tried it today, just for the sake of trying. My hair is currently in a bun. Worst hair day I've had in months
Good to see you too CIG
It has been quite a while I'm regular on the boards. But guess what, Miami is starting to get humid again... I will def be around, trying to battle the frizz monster! How has your curly journey been?
Neleke, I finger curl selected sections that aren't clumping just right. Unfortunately I am lazy, so I never notice them until after my hair is partly dry. What I do if i spot a clump coming apart I rewet it, maybe add a tiny bit of gel and wrap it around my finger. Then I pull out my finger and scrunch the looped bit of hair and drop it gently. It usually clumps right up and stays curly. I guess it isn't quite twirling but that never worked for me. I would just get a clump of straight hair doing that
Shelly, I used to pixie diffuse until each section was dry as well when I started. My curls formed just fine and with little frizz but it seemed like it was plastered to my head. It looked fine, but I wanted WOW and this video did that for me. I get a lot more volume and plus the flipping allows the roots to fall more naturally (to me). And you know what, I am starting to suspect my hair is wavy... if I don't scrunch/plop/diffuse my hair does a lazy, barely wavy thing and if I let it dry in a bun it pretty much ends up straight. It's hair that doesn't know what it wants, lol.
