hey there, my hair when wet and scrunched it loose wringlets all over and smaller underneath but when I dry my hair the top turns more into waves and looks a mess but the underneath is shiny wringlets that are beautiful why does my hair do this and how do I get the top to be curly. My hair has always been curly but I’ve always brushed out the top making it flatter but I much prefer my curls I don’t know what products to use, what order a routine I’m so confused if anyone can help me get curls all over my head and shiny that would be great. below I have attatched my hair dry (grey top) and wet (green top)

    Hi @Bellasmiiith : Welcome to! :) Your hair looks good in the photos you posted. I see what you mean by it is a looser curl pattern. That can be caused by many things: dryness, damaged, not using products suited to your hair type.

    For starters, can you tell us what your hair properties are (especially hair width, porosity)? I think there is a guide in the newbie threads about how to figure this out. These will help determine what products and techniques are best suited to your hair.
