Simply Delightful Side Twist
Curl definition is the highlight of this look, and can be easily achieved using ApHogee Curlific! Curl Definer. Your textured hair will benefit from this quinoa protein-infused definer that puts in overtime to fight humidity and add bounce to curls. Make sure your hair is damp when scrunching a small amount of the product into your curls. Depending on your styling preference, feel free to let your curls air dry in class or diffuse them before you get out the door!
In addition to adding definition and control to your mane, you'll need to grab a few miniature claw clips to make this style look and feel top-notch. Use your fingers or wide-tooth comb to make a part section wherever you prefer and twist your strands. To set the look, clip the ends of your twists into your mane and fluff the rest of your curls.
This curl definer was designed by the creative minds at ApHogee to work in tandem with leave-in conditioners and textured hair. With Holy Grail products like this one, don't you feel lucky to by a curly girl of the world? We surely do!
