Question about skip curl (twirling) method
 
When you use this method, do you comb (with wide tooth comb first)? Also, do you make your curls different sizes?

My curls look very messy these days and I'm going to try this method again.

Thanks for your input!

I use a shower brush to first smooth my hairs together. Then I twirl and skip.

I do all sorts of sizes. Smaller ones on top and thicker ones underneath.

Someone must explain this method to me, lol.

Hi KuLaidejuisce. Here are text instructions for how to Skip Curl, the Skip Curl thread here on nc.com, and a video.

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't...sometimes I twirl using a plastic vent brush too instead of fingers (to really smooth down the hair)

Drainclogger, could you explain what you mean that you use a plastic vent brush? Do you do that in advance of the twerling? I may be misunderstanding your post: are you using the plastic vent brush to actually do the twirling and how do you do that?

Thanks, everyone for your input! and Geek_Chic for the video and instructions.

I use a wide-toothed comb first. I definitely grab different-sized chunks of hairóreally cuz I'm just too lazy to be all organized about it! :)

Thanks very much for all the responses! :blob2:

After my hair is wet and with styling product in it, I take a section of hair, brush from roots to almost the end, then I twirl the brush around until the strand forms a corkcrew. One last twirl at the end and a gentle pull and the end is done too. (I don't skip btw, I just twirl). I only do this on SOAKING hair and with cond or styling product that has a lot of slip to it. I learned accidentally how to do this when my arm was in a cast and I couldn't actually use my fingers to twirl! It gives very smooth, defined curls. I do lose some volume with this method...desirable in most seasons for my hair type.

I tried this today after my shower. I can't do a lot to my hair since its still taking time to get thick after recovering from dye thru the yrs. I'm so glad I stumbled upon this.
My pattern stayed defined even after work (& I have to wear a hat). Wasn't frizzy. Really helped my hair soak up my products. Its so cute too! I can easily do this every time I wet/detangle my hair. That simple playing & slight tugging should also help stimulate growth as well! :) I'm happy, lol.
Thanx everyone!
