How can I take advantage of my curls?

Keep it Curly

Rachel True maintains a fun and flirty style by not fighting her naturally curly hair, at least not too much.

The keys to making curls like True's look great are having a great cut and using quality products. To get a look like True's, maintain your haircut with monthly trims that cut away the frizziest part of the hair - your split ends. Seeing your hairstylist regularly will ensure the ends are cut away before they can wreak havoc on your look. She can also give you deep conditioning treatments, to keep your hair in great shape. In addition, curl defining products, like those of John Frieda, work best when used together from shampoo to finished style.

If your hair has a curl pattern that is too tight to form pretty curls like True's, talk to your cosmetologist about a "reverse perm." This is a relaxing treatment that uses traditional perm solution, rather than a harsh relaxer. Your hair will be rolled on perm rods and the solution will change your super tight curls into loose spirals. Another advantage is that traditional perm solution is not as drying to your hair as lye relaxers. Keep in mind though, the perm solution may lighten your hair a little, and lye relaxers are not recommended after reverse perms. You will want to be certain that this is a style you want to keep, at least until your hair can grow long enough for you to have the permed part cut off.

To make your curls look pretty and polished, use curl defining spritz or mousse throughout. Scrunch the hair to make the spirals hold together, then use a laminate to enhance shine.
