Whether it's your first year on campus or your last, all college curlies want to make a good impression on the first day of classes! Here are some tips to get your curls, coils and kinks looking great!

  • You'll be walking across a large campus during the day, and here in Texas at least, it's still insanely hot, so style your hair away from your neck and face. Use an elastic headband, bobby pins, or wear your hair in a high bun to stay cool.

Use a gel or serum to keep your hair locked into its curl pattern and prevent frizziness. Kinky Curly Curling Custard is a great soft gel, but when using products with more hold, remember to use your favorite leave-in or oil first to prevent crunchy curls.
