defining tight spirals

Post by ky on 14th March 2011, 3:14 am

I wanted to know if anyone has ever tried to define curls that are about 1/8" in diameter. If so, how long did it take?

That's probably my curl size. Like the size of a very small coffee stirrer. I define my curls using the shingling method. Unfortunately, it took me 3 hours when I did it today. But that's because I like to separate each individual curl on my head and my hair is also very dense. If you do it in sections it shouldn't take as long.

I have never even tried because my hair is so tightly coiled and like juice and berries said it would take me entirely too long..So for me I stick to braid outs, twist outs, etc. Or for me my classic go to style is a puff since my hair is so tightly coiled I can just slick my edges up and call it a day.

Ditto waht Lalee said. Twists and braids do it for me.

I have used garnier fructis, oil, and eco styler on wet hair. I take less than 10 minutes to apply it, then I shake periodically. I have drinking straw and coffee stirrer sized curls and coils. I can get bigger curls if I apply more product, spending maybe like 20 minutes applying in smaller sections.

But like the other ladies said, a wet braidout gives me the same curl size as a wash and go.
