Ivonne's Makeover by Curl Junkie(Click image for full size)
- Submitted on Thursday, January 14th, 2010 by NaturallyCurly
Ivonne’s wavy and curly hair is fine, and she wanted a new look. Curl Junkie stepped up to offer her one.
Her hair was washed with Curl Junkie’s Gentle Cleansing Shampoo and conditioned with our new Curl Fix Intensive Hair Treatment (since her hair was slightly damaged by all the blow-drying and she had slight breakage in the front parts of her hair).
We left the Curl Fix in her hair as we cut it so that it could have time to penetrate and we could easily detangle her hair. Next, we rinsed and followed with our new Curl Assurance Smoothing Conditioner to add softness and shine to her hair. We rinsed her hair and while still wet, we scrunched in a generous amount of Curls in a Bottle! making sure to cover all of the hair, especially her frizziest parts in her bang area.
Next we used clips at her crown to help give her some height on the top of her hair once dry. This area is usually flat for her since her hair is so long.
We then used a diffuser on medium heat to dry her hair. We gently put small sections of hair in the diffuser and brought it to her head and held it there without moving for 5-6 minutes per section. You can also diffuse with your head flipped over if you do not want to use clips at the top of your head. We diffused until her hair was about 90% dry, and air-dried the rest.
