Grace is a NaturallyCurly Video editor with Type 2a hair. Her hair struggle consists of keeping her waves defined and full, but with a little help from these Editors' Choice Products, she is a Wavy Queen. Make sure to watch the video at the end to see her full routine in action!


Wash Routine

Step 1. Shampoo with Vitabrid Scalp Shampoo

Step 2. Condition with DevaCurl One Condition Weightless Waves Conditioner 

Step 3. Dry Hair with Remedie Frizz Eliminating Towel

Step 4. Apply Eden Bodyworks Peppermint Tea Tree Hair Milk

Grace Cupping Hair

Styling Routine

Step 5. Apply Salon Pro Twin Olive Maximum Hold Hair Gel with the "cupping" technique.

This is done by coating the hair and hands in gel and then cupping the hair in water so that the gel gets evenly distributed/the hair clumps. Grace does this while her hair is soaking wet. She then scrunches her hair with her hands and then with a microfiber towel. When her hair is beginning to dry after the towel scrunching, she takes a little more gel and scrunches that through again.


Step 6. Grace then diffuses with the Xtava diffuser, either upside down or by clipping her roots up.

Step 7. Finally, for extra hold Grace finishes with Devacurl Hairspray


Extra Step: To Refresh (not shown in the video) Grace uses the Curly Hair Solutions H20 Water Bottle, an NC Editor fave!
