1) Wet hair

According to Chris, wet hair is an important first step to reform the curl pattern and have more control of your hair, "First of all, when styling curly hair, I always like to start off with the hair wet," says Chris. The following step is to take small sections of hair and wrap them around your fingers as you go along. Repeat this process in your whole head. 

"It doesn't really matter which direction you twist the curls, it's more about following your curl pattern – so looking at your curl, seeing which direction it's going in and following it,” he says. 

2) Dry hair with a diffuser nozzle

To dry your hair, Chris recommends using a diffuser nozzle to distribute the air-flow evenly and have more control. Moreover, flipping your hair upside down can create more volume. When your hair is 50% dry, you can tip it back and continue diffusing.

3) Let the rest dry naturally 

When your hair is only 98% dry, switch off your diffuser and let it dry naturally." I never like to dry it 100% with curly hair. I always think it's nice to leave that last little bit to dry off on its own,” says Chris. 

Finally, he recommends a moisturizer called ColorWOW Pop & Lock High Gloss Finish to break the curls up and give them a nice shine.
