    Straight up tips from women with natural curls.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community about their best tips for naturally curly hair. Here are the tricks that actually work.

    1. Get a dry haircut.

    2. Pineapple it before bed to wake up with ~flawless~ curls.

    3. Or plop your hair instead.

    Here's a video that shows you exactly how to plop:

    4. Use a cotton T-shirt to cut down on frizz when drying your hair.

    5. Sleep in a satin-lined cap and avoid breakage during the night.

    6. But if you don't like wearing a night cap, you can just use a silk pillowcase.

    7. Style your hair using a diffuser on the coolest setting.

    8. Throw away any products with harsh chemicals or detergents.

    9. Stop using shampoo.

    10. Fix ~rogue~ pieces in the front with a curling iron.

    11. Use coconut oil overnight.

    12. But do a skin test of the oil you're trying before using it all over your head.

    13. Try product lines made specifically for curls, like DevaCurl.

    14. And use leave-in conditioner. All. The. Time.
