Training Natural Hair to Curl
It's curly YALL! I use to couldn't hardly get this piece of hair to curl for NOTHING! It would just give me a little wave. The question is... Can you train natural hair? You absolutely CAN! I am living proof of that. This excludes heat damage though. When I first went natural my hair was not as curly as it is now especially the front. I couldn't get my front to curl at all and it hated that the two textures were so different. What did I do to get it to curl???? I continued to do wash n go's and some twistouts but if I had to guess the wash n go's is what really did it. Let me see if I can explain how this works first...if you have waves or curls when your hair is wet then you definitely have a curl/wave pattern. To bring it out you have to continue to wet it, condition it, and set it. Example...it works the same way as straightening it...if you keep straightening your hair it will begin to go straighter so if you keep wetting your hair and setting the curls it will get curlier. My hair is now super easy to curl since I've been practicing wetting my hair often (wash n go's) I know this works because I have trained many other clients hair to curl with little product. If you are seeking more definition I challenge you to do this!
