You can use whatever product cocktail works best for your hair.

Then follow these eight steps — from this great Curly Hair Routine video by Donata White.

Step 1: After shampooing, apply your products to damp — not wet — hair.

For even more protection against frizz, use a cotton T-shirt to squeeze excess moisture out of your hair before using any products.

Step 5: Begin rolling the bottom of the T-shirt up toward your forehead, then wrap it around the nape of your neck.

If there's enough fabric to tie the ends at your neck, you can. Otherwise, you'll secure this piece in the next step.

Step 6: Bring the top of the T-shirt up toward your head, wrapping around the rest of your hair and bringing the arms down and around the nape of your neck.

Step 7: Stand upright and bring the arms of the shirt up towards your forehead. Tie them together in a knot, then tuck any loose corners into the knot.

Tie the knot tight enough that it stays in place, but not so tight that it's uncomfortable.

Step 8: Once your hair is dry, unwrap your T-shirt and SEE YOUR BEAUTIFUL CURLS.

Some people wait 30 minutes, others wait two hours, and some let their hair dry overnight. Find the amount of time that works best for you!
