How to define naturally curly hair
I get asked a lot how I style my hair. Well I thought I'd break it down to some simple steps.

    Take a section of hair and then hold the dryer against it, once again scrunching the curls. I dry my hair until it is about 70% dry.

I make a mixture of salt, and a little leave in conditioner and water and do something similar with my curls this way.
