HOW TO CREATE CURLS IF YOU ARE NOT BORN WITH IT
A lot of people feel that once they go natural, they will have those amazing curls and coils like they see in pictures and on Youtube. When this is not the case, it can be daunting.
It is important to embrace your hair, curls or not. However, it is okay to have variety and ability to create curls and coils.
First, how do you kow if you ARE BORN with it?
When you wash your hair and it is free of products, do you see any curls or coils? If you do, then you are born with it. If not, that is still okay.
You can ENHANCE your curls by using products like gels, curl enhancers (this is not a chemical), and different techniques of manipulations.
You can also do twistouts, braidouts, flat twistout and other out-styles. Out styles such as twistout is created by twisting sections of your hair after moisturizing and adding gel (if you want more hold) and then after it has dried, untwist. The same process applies to braidout and other out styles.
The style in the picture below is my hair twisted, then I banded it with hair ties (almost like doing african threading), then the next day, I took it down. My results is more pronounced because I do have natural coils in my hair.
