I love rocking an afro as much as the next girl, but sometimes having hair that feels like straw and looks like I've just been feeling up a Van De Graaff generator just isn't for me. That's why, through trial and error, I have come up with the following formula to tame my mane and transform it into lovely soft curls. If you're a fellow frizzy-haired friend, go ahead and try this routine out- it could work for you too!

The most important thing is to find a product that works, and my daily miracle-worker is the Aussie Split-End Protector. This is not marketed as a frizz-lessening product, or as a product to define curls, and yet it does both! I've personally found that a lot of "gel" or "mousse" labeled products- at least the ones in my price range- leave the hair feeling crunchy or dry. But the split-end protector keeps your hair silky soft with exactly that: silk! Hydrolyzed silk, listed in the ingredients, is a silk protein derived from silk worm cocoons. It forms a film which binds moisture and improves hair manageability and structure. The best part? This Aussie product is only about $3.00 for a bottle, which will last for months.

Here's the routine:

Immediately after showering, part your hair and brush it through with a wide-toothed comb or a gentle brush, (widely spaced bristles).

Use a towel to lift and scrunch your wet hair, so it's no longer dripping wet.

Here is where the product comes in. Squirt it 2 or 3 times into your hand, and rub your hands together. Starting at one end, gently lift your hair from the bottom up and scrunch it all the way around.

After that's done, it's important not to sabotage your curls during the drying process. Allowing your hair to air dry is best, but if you don't have time for that, invest in a blow-dryer with a diffuser attachment on the end. The diffuser will make for a gentler drying session and leave you with your well-styled hair instead of frizz.

And there you have it! Thanks for reading and I wish you the best of luck on your way to a fabulous head of hair!
