tutorial: how i style my naturally curly hair

i'm finally doing this post for you peeps! i know so many of you have been commenting, emailing and tweeting, etc. asking me how i style my naturally curly hair. so here it is - a step by step tutorial on how i style my hair. not really a quickie but i wanted to get all the info in for you guys so it was clear what i do.

i wear my hair in a variety of ways, check out other hair-styling related posts here!


  1. wash hair with moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. lately i've been using Jason's shampoo (Whole Foods) and Giovanni conditioner (Whole Foods) and Rahua conditioner (Salons) on my dry ends.
  2. apply curl defining cream - i use various kinds, currently Pureology.
  3. blow dry your hair using a diffuser, flip upside down to start and make sure to not make a defined part and keep a lift at your roots. scrunch with your hand to help define the curls.
  4. after your hair is dry, use a smoothing serum to calm the frizz and protect from the heat of the curling iron. currently i'm using the Shea butter one by Organix (CVS).
  5. use a tapered-end curling wand (mine is a 4 in 1 by Cortex - posted about it here) to curl any straight pieces. make sure to alternate the direction of your curls to get a more natural look.
