How to help your curly hair whilst drying
by Jessica LB
Of course, drying your curly hair naturally is best, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't help it to dry the way you want it.
When the hair is wet, you can use a wide-toothed comb to separate the hair into its individual curl strands, which you can change depending on how large you want your curls to be by using your fingers to gently separate or twist the strands together. Hair should be dripping wet whilst doing this.
Afterwards, (and you may want to tip your head down for this) use a towel to squash out any excess water by pressing the curls against the scalp and holding for a couple of seconds before moving onto another area of the head (you may wish to gently rub the hair back and forth on scalp to assist with drying, however this can cause frizz).
Once complete, you may wish to do additional drying with a towel if your hair is prone to drying slowly, or you may find that separating the strands into smaller sections will assist drying.
Once finished, tilt head back up gently, and allow hair to dry as normal.
