    That's exactly what Freddie, Tristan, and Bianca did when they wanted to learn more about how to better take care of their hair at home.

    To do that, first they had to have their fabulous curls diagnosed.

    So the trio went to Donatela, a curl master, and the co-owner of Curls OneoneOne.

    Apparently, there are a lot of curly hair types to pick from when trying to buy products, and it can get pretty confusing tbh.

    They learned that dehydrated hair means tighter curls, and more moisture in your hair means looser curls. A-ha!

    Also on hand was Ezmeralda, co-owner of Curls OneonOne, who explained that you could have five different types of curls in the same head of hair. Whaaaat?

    Pro-Tip: When washing your hair, warm water is better than hot because hot water is more likely to dry out your hair.

    A big question was how can you retain the moisture in your hair without having to wash it like two to three times a week? Like this:

    And when you do wash, the curl pros suggest avoiding shampoo that has sulfate, which is detergent. It strips your hair of its natural oils and dries it out, which is no bueno.

    When it was time to detangle, the curl stylists suggested dividing Tristan's hair into sections and massaging it, before detangling the strands starting at the root.

    They also said the more moisture your curly hair can get — the better! Take note.

    For Freddie, they suggested using a DevaDryer defuser, and also shaking her hair out like this!

    Basically, the less you touch your hair during the drying process, the better.

    When it was time for the big reveal, Bianca was absolutely in love and super excited about her beautiful twist-out!

    I mean, how could you not?

    Tristan also loved how defined his curly locks looked after getting them diagnosed and manhandled by the curl experts.

    And all three admitted to learning a ton from the ladies about how to tame and maintain their curly mane!
