Jada Pinkett Smith has a full head of curls that many natural-haired women envy. If you don't have a loose curl pattern or extra length like Jada, there are a few styling methods you can try to achieve hair that is large and in charge. Get tips for creating big bouncy ringlets on natural hair when you keep reading.
1. Blow-Dry: In order to achieve extra length, you can blow-dry hair before styling. You don't have to make it completely straight, but it is more important to stretch out your length. Once hair is completely dry, you can add ringlets with a curling iron. Remember to use a heat-protecting spray formulated for curly hair like Hair Rules Blow It All Out ($18).
2. Roller-Set: If you're more low-maintenance, you can roller-set your natural hair while wet. Apply a setting lotion like Jane Carter Solution Wrap & Roll ($9) to dripping wet strands that are fully detangled. Then, taking small sections, you can roll using perm rods, Curlformers, or flexi rods. To keep ends from frizzing, try using end papers. If you're in a hurry, you can set under a hood dryer or air-dry overnight.
