Of course, regardless of the style, you are trying to adopt, you need to choose the right product to get the perfect results. In short, choose natural products that are designed for your hair type and preferably have Kerastase in them.

It’s amazing what you can achieve when you have confidence.

Make It Clean & Wet

The first step is to wash your hair with your chosen product, ideally one from the Kerastase range. Washing your hair ensures all impurities and other issues are removed. It will also help your hair to stay clean and healthy while your curls are in place. It is possible to simply dry shampoo your hair for a day without losing the curls.

Remember, it’s easier to do curl plopping with wet hair so dry it to remove excess water but leave it feeling wet.

Add Styling Cream

You’ll want to choose a natural styling cream from the same range as your shampoo and other hair care products. Run this through your hair, make sure all your hands are coated but don’t use an excessive amount of styling cream. It’s also important to use one that can be left in your hair.

Flip It

Now you simply flip your hair onto a towel that you have placed on a flat surface. Spend a few minutes scrunching your existing curls to make them tighter. When you’re done, tie the towel into a knot at the top of your head.

Drying Your Hair

You now have a choice. You can dry your hair naturally by simply doing nothing else to it. Or, if you prefer to get even tighter curls then use a diffuser. This will also give your hair more volume.

It’s surprising, but this simple technique makes a huge difference to your curls.
