Before Curling Your Hair
1. Don’t weigh your hair down with excess conditioner
Everyone knows healthy hair needs moisture, but the honest truth is that excess conditioner can weigh down your hair and, in turn, deprive it of volume. To find a happy medium, there are a few things you can do. If you have fine hair, consider skipping conditioner and do you wash the day before, or only conditioning the very ends. Thicker hair can get away with using smaller amounts of conditioner than normal instead of skipping it altogether, but we still recommend using a lighter conditioner like Bumble&Bumble’s Seaweed Conditioner. Bonus: it smells so good.
