Secret: DO NOT RINSE OUT!
Yesterday, I had my hair trimmed and reshaped at a Deva Curl specialized salon. I also got side bangs which are ADORABLE! Anyway, my stylist took a look at my parched curls and said, "This time, let's not rinse out the conditioner, okay?" I thought to myself What!?
But, she's the expert, so I let her do her thing. She co-washed my hair, then added the conditioner, and didn't rinse it out. Then she added some gel (or maybe some other styling product) and clipped up my roots. Hooded-drier, then defused it, and I left the salon to go back home. I SOTC and my hair looked FABULOUS! No frizz and flyaway! This never happened to me before!
So, if you find that half-rinsing your conditioner out still leaves your hair slightly dry and frizzy, just don't rinse it out at all!
