Set using a top quality setting lotions or mousses for lightweight and bouncy curls. Especially when you’re planning to air dry your hair, heavy creams and oils can render your curling efforts useless.
Rods can be used for over and under curl wraps, just make sure to use the same time of wrapping all around your hair for it to curl out evenly and fully shaping your style. Use oil in your fingers to unravel each rod.
Styling can be done with the bottom tip of a fine tooth comb to get some volume going. For maintenance, use setting sprays and reset when necessary.
