How do wavy ladies curl their hair?

ShubhoRShubhoR Posts: 107Registered Users
This question goes out to all 2a wavies out there. I absolutely love the curls 3a ladies have and the braid outs and twist outs that women with type 4 hair sport . I was wondering if anybody with type 2 hair do anything to get well defined curls?

If so, how did you do it? What products did u use? How long did you keep the braid out or twist out?
Braid outs work well for me, but I love the effect that twist outs had on my hair . unfortunately, I rocked a bantu-knot out only once, by accident, and when I tried to do it later,i couldn't remember exactly what I did the last time and it came out as a huge frizzy tangled mess :-|

I would appreciate any advice ladies. :)
HAIR TYPE -2a-b, black, mostly medium
CO WASH, RO-HE HH and ENLEVEN and GARNIER RANGE
CLARIFY- I use sulphate shampoos silicone free(diluted), vinegar rinses
DC-pure coconut oil, olive oil, sometimes a SMT
LI-aloe vera gel + castor oil
I'm currently at BSL, aiming for waist length.I'm a very impatient person, wish me luck :D
I love my flat iron, but I love my waves even more. :-D

    I use plain old curlers. Curlformers work pretty well, but you have to make sure you have enough of them.

    It's just getting long enough for french braiding. My hair is very fine, and everything else would probably horribly tangle it.
    Averages out at 2b, ranges from 1c to 3a, very fine
    Mane 'n Tail co-wash + leave-in

    Clarifying shampoo every few weeks

    Thanks for your reply. :)
    I think I'm gonna stick to braiding until I find a styling product that works for me.
