People always ask me, "How do you manage to maintain your curls for so long?"
Well, there isn't one specific method that will work for everyone. Finding a good routine and products that are nourishing for your curls is the key to healthy, bouncy, long-lasting curls.
Here's a method which I have tried and tested that you could experiment with:
Detangle and pre-poo the night before wash day.
Shampoo with a gentle, conditioning shampoo.
Deep condition weekly.
Follow the LOC method for styling.
Allow to air dry with minimal manipulation.
ALWAYS protect your curls either with a satin bonnet, scarf, pillow case (or in extreme circumstances, all 3 :)
Let me know if you try this method and how it works for you.
