#1: stringy curl strands
When I get out of the shower, my curls are perfectly bundled into large curls. However, whenever I apply a product on my wet hair, the curl strands break up into thinner ringlets and by the time I diffuse it, it looks somewhat close to a jheri curl (which I do not want.) I don't want a bunch of thin, hardened curls. How can I get my curls to form together like when it was out of the shower, and also be dry?
