Richeau's Makeover by Curl Junki

Submitted on Thursday, January 14th, 2010 by NaturallyCurly

Richeau’s gorgeous curly hair was made over using Curl Junkie products.

We washed her hair with our Gentle Cleansing Shampoo and conditioned it with our Beauticurls Daily Conditioner. For Deep Conditioning, Richeau loves our Hibiscus & Banana Deep Fix.

We decided to do two-strand twists on her hair. We took a small section (1 1/2"-2" square) at a time and used our Hibiscus & Banana Honey Butta to help detangle and add moisture to her hair. Then we used a brush to detangle the hair. After brushing through the section, we applied some Aloe Fix and a little of Curls in a Bottle! (mid-shaft through ends) and smoothed through.

Then we began to twist the hair section by section. We used different-sized sections to have twists of slightly varying dimensions.

We found that using the Curls in a Bottle! at the ends of her hair helped the ends to not unravel and remain smooth.

We then placed her under a hooded dryer for approximately 20 minutes to make sure her roots were dry. Then we used a diffuser as shown above to finish drying her twists and to allow the ends to curl up a bit.

When her hair was about 90% dry we unraveled the twists carefully so as not to cause frizz or split the twists. We then continued to diffuse the different sections of her hair for another 10-15 minutes.
