Your hair may be like mine.

This is what has worked for me: wash as normal, condition, detangle, rinse, apply conditioner to soaking wet hair (important: do not comb or brush, it will kill the curls), smooth custard in sections of hair using the praying hands method, do not touch until dry.

At night put hair up in ponytails in long enough.

In the morning spritz lightly with water and fluff or pass steaming wand over hair.
