Getting elongated curls that are low on frizz and high on curl definition is every natural-haired woman's dream. But Dickey explains that the key to converting kinks to curls is styling while hair is soaking wet.
First, wash hair with a nonsudsing cream cleanser to keep it moisturized and frizz-free. Don't pile your strands on top of your head, though. Instead, pull all your hair back and scrub the roots and comb product through to the ends with your fingers. Follow with a conditioner, and begin the detangling (and stretching) process.
