Divya's Curly Hair Routine

Rinse out conditioner with hair upside down
and with water at the lowest possible pressure.
Scrunch ends gently to help rinsing and to help curl formation. Don't rinse out all of the conditioner (I rinse it out about 80%)
Finger detangle hair again after turning off the water
hair still flipped upside down (maybe add some leave-in
if needed). If I need a leave-in
I use DevaCurl's B'Leave In.
Rake one pump of gel into the curls. I use DevaCurl's Ultra Defining Gel
Take 1-1.5 more pumps of gel and scrunch it in for about a minute or two. Then scrunch with a microfiber towel.
depending on how my hair looks after all this
I add another pump of gel on top of my towel dried hair. This may not work for everyone
but I like getting a little crunch in my hair from the gel. It gives me maximum definition.
Wait about 30-40 minutes for your hair to dry a little bit
Use a tiny bit of oil to scrunch away the gel cast. I just use coconut oil
but any oil should work. Just don't scrunch with dry hands because that can cause frizz.
