I can get looser curls. After putting in my product (I use suave mousse and bioterra gel). Then I twist sections of my hair into larger ringlets. I then use my hair dryer without a diffuser and on low speed and blow down on my hair. Sometimes I have to hold up a ringlet and put the drier on it to get some of the moisture out. Once my hair is dry I'll use curl creme if I have any frizzy spots and to pull apart the larger ringlets.
