The Trick: Prep Hair With Shower Steam
"Pop on the shower to it's highest heat but don’t get in," explains Lebron. "You want your hair to soak in the steam from the hot water." By exposing your hair to the steam, you'll force the cuticle to open, making this a prime time to add curl enhancing products to your hair. An open cuticle means the products will work better!
"Once hair is thoroughly dampened from the steam, rub product all over your hands to create heat in order to make the product runnier and easier to distribute," says Lebon. "Then, simply scrunch the hair up with the product and finger coil the curls until you've reached the desired amount of control."
