Suggested top tips for the best application experience
To create perfect, frizz-free curls, treat your hair to the best hair care products your purse will allow. (Alterna's Life Curls Collection includes a shampoo, conditioner and Curls Shape Activator and is formulated with micro proteins to fortify hair and improve elasticity and macro silicones to help seal frayed cuticles and eliminate frizz.)
Start at the front to gain confidence before moving on to the trickier back sections—better still, ask a friend to help and have fun in the process!
If you're using a hair dryer, use a heat protector and styling products to add hold, but avoid using anything too sticky!
For tighter curls, apply Curlformers to smaller sections of hair. The Short & Narrow or Long & Narrow Curlformers will create ringlet spiral curls. For a naturally curly look, apply Short & Wide, Long & Wide or Extra Long & Wide Curlformers to 1" wide hair sections, which you can break up further by running your fingers through your hair when dry. For a looser, softer wave, apply Curlformers to larger sections of hair.
The Long & Extra Wide Curlformers will create a softer and bigger wave, which you can break up further by running your fingers through your dry hair.
Run some serum through the ends to keep your curls glossy
