Before you go to the gym, apply a styling cream to your hair and then put it up into a bun. The time and the heat from your body will allow the moisture to set in.
16. Be Brand Loyal
Products in the same brand are designed to work best together. Since curly hair usually requires more products than other hair types, it's beneficial to buy all products that are from the same brand once you find one that works for you. And it's not just about getting you to spend more money—the same rule applies to products in all price ranges.
