#1: Looser Curl Styling Techniques Needed
Hey everyone, I am new to naturally curly and this is my first posting. I'm about a 3b, 3c at the nape curl type and most of my life I've straightened my hair, either with chemical relaxers or flat irons, but I've always wanted to like my curly hair. Consequently, I've been growing it for over five years, thinking that the longer my hair is, the more I'll like the curl, but my hair grows at a glacial pace. It is about shoulder length when it is curly right now, and although the curl isn't bad, I'm wondering if anyone has techniques and or products that will help me style my hair in a looser curl pattern. I'm using DevaCurl products and really like them, but I'm open to new product suggestions that will leave my hair soft and bouncy. Also, I'm thinking about getting a hood dryer as I think that will help give me a looser, more wavy type curl. Does anyone have experience with this type of drying resulting in looser curls?
