How to Define Curls

Define Curls With One Hand (It's Easy)

Curl definition. It's the one elusive element for many curly girls. But the secret to bouncy waves and minimal frizz isn't just about the products you pick. It also requires flawless technique. This one-hand move is equivalent to Michael Jordan's famed flying dunk, but you'll be making moves on the bathroom tile instead of the basketball court. First off, you want to apply product to your curls while they're still soaking wet. This way the formula can do its work on your most elongated curl pattern.

The move: Flip your head over, allowing your ringlets to hang. Use one hand to scrunch hair at ends, and push upward towards your scalp. This will separate curls while maintaining the ideal coiled shape. No time to air dry? You can use this same motion to dry hair. Just make sure to use a T-shirt instead of a towel to keep frizz away. You can also pull out this move on second-day hair when applying a leave-in conditioner to refresh your curls.
