I went for a deva trim yesterday and yes, she did use more product than I usually use but I have great second day hair with what she did. Now I need to see if I can do the same and get the same results.
Do some of you get better curls if you add product in soaking wet hair upside down and scrunch it in and then place curls in place and either diffuse dry or let dry naturally? Actually she also used a microfiber towel to get a bit of excess dripping water out after she added product but my hair was still really wet before she set me under the dryer.
I have been combing my soaking wet hair too but she never used a comb, just her fingers. She said the comb would disrupt the pattern. And I can see how that would be. right now I have tight Shirley Temple type curls and when I do it my old way by combing, I get more wavy hair.

Natural hair color - dark brunette
Fine, thinish hair/3a, 3b
