How do you make your curls pop? Video blogger Sarah shares her hair routine for big curls with volume.

Video blogger Sarah, also known as Waterlily716, shares her routine for big, voluminous curls.

Waterlily716, otherwise known as Sara, shows us her never fail routine on how to get big curls.

You will need:

1. Styling products (lots!)

2. Curl activator (preferably with magnesium sulfate)

3. Blowdryer with diffuser

4. Cotton t-shirts (2)

Let's Begin...

1. Start with soaking wet hair. Apply a leave-in conditioner and styler. She used Kinky Curly Knot Today and Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper.

2. Apply a curl activator...TIP: Use DIY sea salt spray

3. Smooth on gel...make sure it's a lightweight gel so it doesn't hold down your big curls.

4. Use a microfiber towel (she uses microfiber gloves!) or t-shirt to scrunch out extra moisture.

5. TIP: Scrunch and style upside down for extra volume.

6. Plop your is an article on how to plop. This creates an accordion feel to your curls

7. Diffuse your hair on low heat... TIP: Turn on diffuser after you've gathered it in the diffuser bowl

8. Diffuse till your hair is about 75% dry. Let the rest air dry. You're done!

@cahara Please check out my wikiHow article, where you can read the steps. Most of my products can be bought from the drugstore or curlmart. If you click the video on the wikihow page it will take you to the original video on youtube where I have listed the products in the video description. HTH! @mamaherrera Yes I generally try not to fluff until my hair is all the way dry. If it's not dry you just have to wait; there's not really a solution.

Hey ther! could you explain if you did that fluffing, the last step when it was completely dry?? I thought if you touch it at all before it's completely dry, you get frizz. Sometimes I"ve got to head out and it's not completely dry, and it's like what do I do?

you have beautiful hair! but im confused with the steps in your video could you just reexplain them simpler for me? lol and also tell me where you bought the products you use
