Follow the steps below to create perfect curls for straight, wavy or curly strands.

Straight Hair - Perfect Curls For All Hair Types

o Apply defristant cream to newly cleansed, rinsed, towel blotted and detangled wet hair.

o Finger rake {{asin=B0002VNKRW,text=Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing Mousse}} from roots to the ends.

o Separate hair into four to six equal sized sections of hair. Braid entire head into four to six large three strands tight braids.

Start a few inches from the roots and braid down to the ends. Gently tie off the ends with a hair friendly cloth elastic orgel.  For tighter curls you may wish to create smaller, tighter braids.
