The Morning After: How To Refresh Your Curls After A Long Night

So you tied your satin scarf extra tight, slept with a silk pillowcase, took your pineappled hair down and your curls were still stiff? Bummer. How do you refresh your style after a long night of tossing, turning and smashing your curls in your sleep? The answer is easier than you think. Here I’ll walk you through 4 easy steps to refreshing curls in the morning.

What You’ll Need

• Spray Bottle (If you do not have a spray bottle, your hands will do)
• Your Favorite Conditioner (Curls Understood™ suggests Curlisto’s products which cater to ALL curl textures. See the recommendations below)

Yep, that’s it! Just two ingredients for ready-to-go curls.

The Steps

Step 1
Take down your pineapple and shake your head lightly to loosen your curls. Don’t give yourself a headache; just shake your head around so that your hair falls down from the top of your head.

Step 2
Fill your spray bottle with water and a little less than a tablespoon of your favorite conditioner and dampen your hair with the mixture (or wet your hands and smooth or scrunch the water/ and conditioner into your hair.) Smoothing will elongate the style while scrunching will create a bit more curl definition. Focus on the top where the pineapple created a shape but do not saturate your roots. Our scalp tends to sweat at night so we don’t want to add more moisture to the roots.

Step 3
Treat any stubborn hairs, frizz, and flyways individually with less than a dime sized amount of conditioner, twirling the hair around your fingers as you go.

Step 4
(Optional) Fluff it out. If it’s volume you’re after, fluff the hair with your fingers without raking through it. When you reach your desired puff you’re good to go.

And now you’re ready to head out and take on your day with bouncy, beautiful curls.
